Project 52 weeks of ATC's - Week 51

(Version française ici)

For Christmas, let’s make a shaker ATC. Here is  my example:

You will need:
  • 2 pieces of cardstock, measuring 2,5" x 3,5"
  • 1 piece of acetate, measuring 2,5" x 3,5"
  • Small Christmas tree stamp
  • Imageof your choice (I recycled mine from a catalog)
  • Polar White Flower Soft
  • 3D foam adhesive (continuous, or row of squares)
  • Regular double-sided tape
  1. On the background cardstock, stamp the tree. If the background is white, colo rit a little, using coloring pencils or watercolor.
  2. Cut out the chosen image. If it’s too thin, line it with a piece of cardstock. It will need to be mounted on foam tape.
  3. Glue the image to the background, giving it a little dimension. Make sure the foam square is thin enough to allow the “window” and frame to fit over it.
  4. Cut out a frame in the second piece of cardstock (base your measurements on the image and overall background).
  5. On the background, run a continuous piece of double sided foam adhesive on all four sides – again, that foam adhesive need to be slightly thicker that the one used to adhere the image. Also ensure that the tape is no wider than the frame you have cut.
  6. Spinkle some Polar White Flower Soft on the background, around the image.
  7. Remove the foam tape backing and adhere the acetate « window ».
  8. Run double-sided tape (flat) all around the window and adhere the frame, hiding the foam tape. Voilà!


Don’t forget to come show us your shaker ATC’s on the store forum!
