Twelve Days of Christmas Candy Cane Shaker Bear


Hi Everyone :)

 So, what's that all about then? Well, over at Whimsy Stamps, we're holding a bit of a 12 Days of Christmas Party. You're gonna wanna check it out if you haven't seen it already. And don't worry if you've missed some letters, you still have time to collect them all. Just sayin'! So, pop over, have a looksie.


I decided I wanted to make a little keepsake that we could get out each Christmas. I have a huge soft spot for this cute Whimsy Stamp called Candy Cane Bear, so, I made a Shaker Box Frame for him to live in. Now, don't be getting overwhelmed by my creativity, I can't make a straight box, let alone a shaker frame. But, after buying a Shaker Box Frame, I did stick a load of sequins, beads and the image inside the box, all by myself. I know. I need a cup of tea!

Shaker Box Frames are a bit like Easel Cards when you want to get a good picture (ie. a pain in the **** naff.) so, here's some other photos too...



And coz I know you wanna see this little chap with his cute friend (UK Peeps, you can get him from Dies To Die For)...

a-may-zing...I love this Faye, extraordinary colouring and design - love love love it... (I will be interested to learn where a box shaker can be obtained from because I can't get anything straight - no sirree - not even with a guillotine! (Which is probably why all my shakers are round - (-;)
