Default Shaker card question; mounting tape? *merged*

I just tried a shaker card for the first time tonight. I had some confetti type paper shapes I got at a party store for the filler. I obviously have the wrong kind of mounting tape, because it didn't allow any room for the confetti to "shake" around. I redid it using a double layer of the mounting tape and it still didn't work.

Are there different types of mounting tape? What exactly should I be using? I have two different brands (different widths) and one was not any thicker than the other.

I have gone up to three levels before with the mounting tape. I don't remember the brand I use - but it is green and white checks on the back. I have found that sometimes it is what I put in the shaker that is the problem. Little beads with no holes work the best for me. I have never had good luck with confetti - it seems to stick to each other and make one big blob of confetti. HTH

to make my shaker card I used the extra part from around the stampin dimensionals so when you have used the circles you have that left over long peices? I used that to make it more fluffy and make it up higher... and its douple sided sticky too so I just used that.. makes sense?

In the past I've used foamie sheets and white glue to make a shaker box with enough depth to allow the contents to shake.

I use sticky strips. I get them at Michaels in the scrapbooking isle near the various tapes. Some of the packages have precut squares and some have 5-1/2" long strips.... which are perfect for shaker cards.

I've only done one shaker card, but I had the same problem. The acetate was too tight to the stuff inside so it didn't move at all. BUMMER. I have just heard to double up or whatever... make it twice as high. I feel your pain... it's never state in any directions that stuff like that could happen. Experiment on some scrap paper.

I have always had good luck with 3m/Scotch mounting tape. I purchase it at ACMoore in the framing section. I have even used shrinky dinks (shrunk) which are thick and really didn't have any issues.

Good luck!

Thanks for all your responses...at least I don't feel like I did it wrong. I'll try some of your suggestions. It looks like it is the Scotch brand Beate used in her tutorial...I'll have to shop around for it.

My hubby brings me home glazing tape and it comes in huge rolls cut to whatever length you want and it's 1/8th" thick.

A stamping friend of mine came up with a great idea. For shaker cards she uses the little colored candy confetti shapes (sprinkles?) that are made for cookie decorations. The kind that are super thin and usually come in a shaker container--found in the cookie decorating section of the grocery store. Last year she used the tiny pumpkins for a halloween card--very cute. You can get tiny stars in red/white/blue for 4th of July, easter eggs, shamrocks, snowflakes, etc. There is a store nearby that carries just about any shape and color of these you can imagine. They are perfect for shaker cards because they are almost paper thin, so they work great if you don't have a lot of space between the acetate and back of the shaker.

Hope this helps.

I wanted the candy sprinkles, but this card was for a Luau birthday party and I found the Hawaiian themed confetti at the party store.

If you rub your embossing buddy inside the bag (or over the acetate) before you put the confetti in, it will cut down on the static. ld

Default shakers

You can even use the 3d mounting squares. And for the shakers inside, I find that the microbeads are the best! They are tiny and roll really nice, and you don't need much!

I use cheap dollar store stuff (super sticky!), but I use at least two layers.

The green and white double sided tape is from Scotch tape. I buy it once a year in a large roll. I also use tiny beads. I'll have to try the cookie sprinkles.

I gave up making shaker cards. I had it up to almost a half inch and it still clung to the sheet and woldn't shake. I used the embossing buddy and it even made it worse. I couldn't even get tehm off with water on the outside. I gave up so hopefully someone will come up with a solution. The only one that came near working was sand.

Another way is to cut a frame out of foam core board, attach that to a cardstock backing, put your shaker stuff in the frame (works great for large stuff like popcorn kernels and coffee beans) then attach your window and over that a cardfront with a frame. Foamcore board comes in a couple of different thicknesses too. Only problem is it is kind of a pain to cut. HTH.

One thing that helps keep them from sticking is to use some matching beads in the shaker. If you just use the confetti, they catch and have static cling, so they stay in a clump. I have made hundreds of shaker boxes when I used to scrap for hire and I always made sure to use some beads with the confetti. Seed beads and micro beads work well. Good luck!

When making Shaker Cards, I have sprayed the confetti with static spray like Static Guard or you can rub the acetate with a dryer sheet to get rid of any static. I have done both with confetti and beads and they both seem to work. Hope this helps!

I think it has everything to do with the filler. Paper fillers just don't shake well. I made an adorable shaker with "jumping" frogs. They didn't move! Ugh. I think paper has too much friction with itself. Beads or jimmies seem to work best.

I have done a great deal of shakers... I think the best advice is "Less is more" I think if you found great Hawaiian confetti pick out a few (3-5) little peices and then add some sand or something. Just a little. I have a measuring spoon that measures about 1/10 of a table spoon,(It says "Just a dash" on it) and I use that. Remember that if you put too much stuff in the shaker there isn't room to shake no matter how thick you make it.
I never even use the tape, I use the little cello-bags and fill it up and then tape the open side shut with the sticky tape.
Hope this helps.

I am going to have to remember that and use that when I make my first shaker card.

Thanks for sharing that idea & your CD shaker! I happened across TLC45 (Technique Lovers' Challenge) and there was a link to The Stamping Studio with those instructions, so, that's where you may say you got those instructions.

Instead of acetate have you tried transparancy paper? Also to keep the confetti from sticking to your foam mounting tape or whatever you use try dabing the inside edge with baby powder. I have made one using this technique and it came out great. I just made my back too big so you could not see my confetti part of the time. I need to try again with a square shape instead of an oval.

HTH!
