Thankful Shaker Cup

ModSquadChallenge Theme: Thanks

Well this was an interesting challenge from the team over at ModSquadChallenge to incorporate the Theme of Thanks or Thankful and make it a shaker but not any kind of shaker but one using an acrylic cup. Sigh none of those little acrylic cups in my stash so I created my own. Not sure if this will be permissible but I used a clear plastic cup that I altered into my shaker….lol…what a day!

Inside my cup is Santa and is reindeer from GKD’s Poster Board Christmas, Sentiment from Sweet ‘n Sassy’s Winter Silhouettes, my background was from a Michael’s craftsmart paper pad, used some green sequins and gem stones for the shaker, created a spellbinder’s frame for the outside and a snowflake to cover some of the print on my “acrylic” cup.

Definitely a hand deliver only card and it’s very top heavy. I do believe I am shaker-ed out!!

  1. You did an outstanding job! Creating your own cup is perfect for this challenge. Lovely card, even if you have to hand-deliver it.

  2. I’m chuckling … both at your comments on how you did this and also at Bonnie’s. I agree with her you should write a book. It would be truly funny. I think it is great that you made your own shaker cup – I wouldn’t even have attempted this and I’m not fond of making shakers at the best of times. You did a good job and hopefully you have someone to whom you can hand-deliver this. You did a good job on this and I like the result.

    1. Thanks, Johanna, I know what you mean about shakers and this was the second one for Christmas. I was determined and if only you could have seen me cutting that little cup apart. Hugs

  3. I don’t see that it says in the challenge that it has to be a cup. It says any shaker with acetate will work too.

  4. Gayle, I totally understand not having something you need and figuring out a different way. You did an excellent job, whether it was needed, or not.

    1. Thanks, Golda, I was pretty sure that the original challenge state acrylic cup but it was fun creating my own version.
