Merriest Trees Shaker Card

Every once in awhile, the scraps and leftover pieces on the craft table serve to inspire another project. I had a pile of little trees — remnants of Stampin’ Up!’s Tiny Christmas Trees Die — sitting on my table. A friend asked what I was going to do with all those little pieces. Create a shaker card, of course.

Today, I’m sharing that fun shaker card project with you.

Did you know the A Walk in the Forest Designer Series Paper (used in today’s shaker card project) s a “give back” product? That means that Stampin’ Up! donates $3 from the sale of each package will be donated to organizations helping kids having a good Christmas.
