Aren’t these just adorable?!?! Shaker cards are so much fun….even more when they come in a kit all die cut and ready to assemble. I just love Paper Pumpkin!

Tip #1: Take note that the evergreen tree circle is much larger than the ornament circle. I even read the directions and it wasn’t mentioned in there. There are also 2 sizes of window sheets. I totally used the large ones for the ornament with plenty or excess all around. Then I went to do these and was only left with the small window sheets that JUST BARELY fit perfectly. It still worked so all is well, but I thought I would pass that along.

So of course since there are 2 different sizes of circles, there are different sizes of circle dimensional borders to create the shaker part. Just make sure you don’t use all of the outside (largest circle) on the ornament cards. Another tip is be sure that you take note of which side is up and which is down on your card so you don’t end up putting the greeting or trees over the shaker pieces upside down! I did all of mine in an assembly line of the first 5 and then the next 5. This helped me move quicker and use up the shaker pieces more evenly without having tons left for the last few!
