Birthday Shaker

This month I have been making birthday cards like crazy.  So I hope you are not tired of them yet.  At least this one will be very different from the others because it's not really even a card.  

I had gotten the Memory Keeper Fuse Tool a while back - for the specific purpose of making sugar cookies and sealing them individually as gifts.  It worked out really well but I thought I should use it for more than just one thing to make it worthwhile.  So I made this fun birthday shaker for one of my son's friends.  It was quite simple but perfect fun for a little kid.

The photo sleeve was already sealed on three sides.  I generously added sequins and shaped glitter to the sleeve.  I then die cut the balloons from Elizabeth Craft Designs Balloons out of all my stash of scraps.  So that all the balloons would not fall to the bottom of the shaker, I adhered some of them to the photo sleeve on the back.  I then added a diagonal panel of white cards stock across the front and adhered a green die cut of Quietfire Design's happy birthday 2.  I also popped up a yellow balloon and silver twine.  The back of the shaker also has a white panel where my son could write his message.

Hope you like my card that is not a card!
