    Genna has a suggestion for Shaker Cards: "I've made some shaker cards using the plastic bubble packaging that so many things (including scrapbooking supplies) come in. If you buy something in a plastic bubble that's stapled or glued to a cardboard backing make sure you open it carefully and keep hold of the plastic for mounting onto your card later. The plastic comes in all shapes and sizes and lets you get really creative with what you use for your shaker material."
