Plain VS Distressed edges
What it takes to create this Shaker Jar
8 ovals (same shape as the center of your jar)
1 Oval white cardstock
1 Oval Clear window sheet
1 ribbon/twine for decoration (not in pic/optional)
Glue (any kind works)
Now you have to layer and glue the ovals together.
This is what created the area to put your shaker items in.
Make sure you glue them together very well so that nothing comes out.
This is what it looks like when all ovals are glued together.
Glue the background oval. I added some ink splatter (stamp) to the back, you can always add a fun sentiment that goes with the theme of your shaker jar.
This is what I used to full up my shaker jar.. lots of little stars, sparkles and glitter!
Fill it up as much or as little as you want.
Glue the clear window sheet on top and make sure to glue it really well so that it seals all the glitter and stuff inside.
Then glue the shaker to the cardstock jar...
close up view of the awesome glitter haha
Note I really like embossing all the edges of the jar because this really draws the eyes to the center of the jar.. I find anyways :)
And finally I added some gold accent twine to the lid area to give it that extra touch.
You could always add a ribbon or a bow (I really suck at making bows so I settled for what's in the pic haha) For the purpose of this jar I left it as is but you could always add more accents to the jar like flowers at the bottom, a sentiment across the middle or bottom or even the lid.. possibilities are endless so play around and have fun!
Hope you enjoyed it :) and create one of your own.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the shapes but you could always use any tools laying around the house to create this as well. All you need is imagination and you can create anything so have fun with it guys!! :-)

I made this card for a fellow Infertile TTC "trying to conceive" friend of mine who recently got her BFP!! "Big Fat Positive" after years of trying :) Thought this sentiment was perfect for her, especially after years of ups and downs she did it!! She's pregnant with her miracle baby :) Couldn't be happier for her and her new journey ahead.

This card kinda happened by accident haha..
I've had that embossed brown background laying around for a while and I ended up cutting a circle out of it to use in another card withought really thinking about where I was cutting the circle out.. then I put it down on the table and realized I should use it to make a card. Originally I was going to add a sentiment in the center of the circle but then remembered I had two owls that were already all made that have been laying around for months!! So.. Took those out theeeen I thought yellow was too bold so I went and cut out a smaller circle thinking maybe I'd leave the green background as a border inside the circle and when I looked at the part that was left from the yellow after cutting out a smaller circle I realized it would look perfect to give it the effect of a moon or even a sunrise/set. Then I used my Silhouette Cameo and cut out the leaves (& cut out a bunch of extra ones for future cards), used my Martha Stewart punch for the small red hearts and voila done! I just love when cards put themselves together so easily :)
I put glossy accents over the hearts and parts of the leaves
to give them some reflection and dimension.
