Mini Snowman Shakers

Mini Snowman Shakers
Hi friends....sharing a mini Tutorial to make these fun mini snowman shakers which you can use as mini note-cards, tags, bookmarks, ornaments or even as fridge magnets...
In short they are so cute you can use them to make so many different handmade gifts for the  festive season! 
My daughter loves them but I am not sure she is going to gift them hehe!
Mini Snowman Shaker Cards
I used the   Crealies snowman die [ which you have seen in these posts : Snowman Snowscape card, DIY Snowman Ornament, Snowman Circle Card, 3 D Christmas Card] to quickly make these little snowmen by mixing and matching colors. The hats are made out of shiny black glitter foam and I mixed different pattern papers to make the  scarves.

Use circle dies to create the shaker bodies for the  snowmen.  I used Crea-nestlies XXL Circle dies from Crealies but you can also hand-cut the  circles...die cutting just makes your job super easy.

Tape 2 cirle dies as shown to die cut circle frames of a reasonable width.

You can use double sided adhesive foam or die cut 2 foam discs to create the wall for your shaker. 
Also cut a circular frame in paper to layer atop.

This is how your shaker wall will look with the layers glued on top of each other.Cut an acetate circle and sandwich it between your foam disc wall and the  paper disc as shown below.

Also cut a solid circle from pattern paper and cardstock for the base of your shaker.

So here are the  parts of your shaker snowman: circular foam frames with
acetate sandwiched and base circles.

I added a silver glitter foam snowflake to the base of the shaker. Add glitter balls, styrofoam snow balls, tiny stars or whatever else you fancy inside your shaker.

I love traditional Christmas Colors but you can go crazy and make flamingo pink shakers too!

Crafty Tip : Don't be tempted to add too many shaker elements in your shaker or it will not shake nicely!

Glue the base over the shaker and let it dry nicely.
Finally glue on your snowman on to its shaker body and voila you have your shaker snowman !

I add a backing so that my snowmen could stand.

You could add jumbo paper clips,magnets or ribbon hangers to them and use them in different ways.
