Maureen's tip: You can make shakers in all shapes and sizes, have fun with them! Remember to use two layers of foam dots to give your sequins more room to move around.  Glue several sequins around the the inside tool.  

What do you think? My heartfelt thanks to Amy and Maureen for taking time to create these beauties for us!  From all the amazing entries, I can tell that you are LOVING this shaker cards challenge! We are approaching 100 entries and that is HUGE! Shaker cards are a bit more work to make, but you know, it is totally worth it!

The challenge ends on the 18th! There is still plenty of time to enter. Thanks for stopping by!
