Shaking Scarecrow


Happy Friday!
Time to start winding down and looking forward to the weekend...
It was such a busy night for me last night ... and hot with so many people in the room

My friend Pat had organised 2 cards for the group so I only had to come up with one to keep them going for the evening ... Being as the club is run by a church ... we are not allowed to make anything relating to Halloween so I decided on an Autumn shaker card.

I thought about the traditional way with foam tape but knew that there was no way they would be able to do that so I used a simpler method that I'd see Liz at Pink Petticoat do ... Using little clear bags


So this is what they made ... I printed 30 little scarecrows (a digital stamp by Hero Arts) and they just popped one in a bag with some sequins.
For the leaves I sponged inks onto 2 sheets of A4 CS and then cut the leaves on my cameo


They were so thrilled with how the shakers work and somehow we managed not to get the floor covered in sequins either Lol!

I hope you have a lovely day and a great weekend ...

Take care

Boy was that bag the perfect solution to make that project fun and super easy. Way to go Ros! I'm sure they loved these and will probably want to make more. :-) Hugs!
P.S. I found some Sophie Hannah books at my library so I'll pick some up next time I go.
