Default Shaker cards help!

Hi everyone! I'm new-ish to the stamping world and just started making Shaker cards. I love them and have only made a few but I've noticed that my sequins get stuck after a few minutes and don't shake around much anymore. I think then issue is some sequins stick on top of each other so then they cant shake around. I've only used a max of 5 sequins in like a 3×2 shaker window. Any suggestions to keep my sequins shaking?

Thankssss!!!

I always rub the inside edge of any shaker card I make with my anti-static pouch. The kind that is made to be used with embossing powder. I think those pouches are basically just corn starch and baby/talcum powder, so you may already have what you need. Dip a q-tip in some baby powder and rub it along any glued edge that your sequins will touch. FYI, I usually use foam tape to make my shakers, so it's the edge of the foam that I'm rubbing with powder.

You can also try rubbing inside the bag or box the sequins are in with a dryer sheet, and doing the same on the inside of the plastic shaker piece.

I use a dryer sheet on my fingers, the inside of the little baggies they’re in and the inside of the little box divided box before dumping them into the box for storage.

I agree about needing to powder your shaker wall edge. The goodies will pick up that sticky and stick to each, the window, the back wall...

I have heard people have a lot of success with the dryer sheets to kill static cling-also a pain with shakers. That just wont solve the wall sticky, but doing both would be ideal.

How about adding more sequins to your shaker? Only 5 sequins sounds kind of stingy. Also, try using things with different shapes to reduce the likelihood of "cupping". Put in some micro beads, bugle beads, flat sequins, star shapes, tiny pearls. Kick it up!

I missed that part. Yes...good suggestion to me! You need more to make the fun sound. The beads really rattle well.

3 x 2 is a big window. I would go with a good pinch of sequins at least.

And sometimes I find I need to double up on the foam tape so there is more room for the sequins or shaker elements to move around...
