Today's project is for this weeks challenge over at Our Creative Corner. I created another fun double-pocket bag with a heart shaker and it's filled with confetti hearts and glitter. Our December host Julee Tilman has challenge all of us to using something clear on either a card or project. It can be anything you want – an acetate card or shaker, an acrylic shape, a clear button or embellishment, clear embossing powder, cello bag, etc.
We LOVE it when you play along, remember there is no time limit on our challenges - feel free to participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave us a comment linking to your project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC
Here is a close-up of my project - I used my heart Nestabilities to create the window for my heart shaker. For the confetti inside, I created a ton of hearts using my NEW Martha Stewart heart Punch (Pictured Below) along with a little Snow Glitter.
This is how I created the heart shaker - I used my scalloped heart Nestabilities on one side of the bag and ran it through several times until the die went through all of the layers.
I added mounting tape around the heart and filled the inside of the heart with three different colors of hearts. To make it a little more fun, I even added some of my Martha Stewart Snow Glitter. Once your heart is filled, carefully remove the backing to the adhesive. Then use a piece of designer paper and cover the heart.
Once the shaker is complete, you can add your holes for the ribbon handles. Fill you bag with cards, candy or even little fun LOVE notes... :)
