Valentine Shaker Tag

Did you know that 141 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually, making Valentine’s Day the second-most popular greeting-card-giving occasion? This is according to www. history.com. They also report that most of those cards are purchased 6 days prior to Valentine's Day. So this month the Jacksonville STARZ wanted to help you create a more personal Valentine with time to spare. 
For the hop, I made this cute little tag to put on a gift. You could also add this to a card face!

I recycled quite a bit for this project. For the base of the card I used some of the chipboard that comes in the DSP packages to prevent the paper from bending. I just glued a piece of the Stacked with Love DSP to cover up the ugly cardboard looking stuff. I cut off the the corners by eye-balling it. I placed the Project Life Card (the heart is already cut out for you) about where I wanted it and then glued two black hearts right about where I wanted the confetti to be. Be sure to glue these hearts down really good. You don't want the confetti to get stuck under them. 

Next I used redline tape to adhere a piece of scrap acetate to the back of the Project Life Card. Then I used the scrap ends of my dimensionals to make the shaker part. It is important to make a complete box around the heart, so that the confetti cannot escape. Oh and make sure your dimensional strips are adhered really well.  I used the Confetti Start Punch to make the Confetti, as I don't have the new Confetti Heart Punch yet. I poured the confetti onto the black hearts and then adhered the Project Life Card over the top of it. 

As an after thought I added the ribbon with the Rhinestones, which was kind of hard to do since the card was adhered to the tag, but I made due. I also added some Real Read Hearts on the front.

Here's a close up picture of the tag.
