Step 1. Print and cut the free printable file. If you are going to make the shaker card, just cut the square design once the page is printed. You can definitely use scissors, but I find it easier to use a metal ruler and a craft knife to cut the straight lines of the card.
Step 2. At this point, you will want to attach the gift card to the back of the printed card – use double sided tape to attach. You may want to write your message on the back now as well. Once that is done, insert your printed card into a photo sleeve, heat up your fuse tool, and carefully go over the two sides and the bottom of the card, using the guide to be as close to the card as possible. Cut off the excess plastic on the bottom and sides.
Step 3. Now, let’s create our filler. You can definitely add sequins and beads, however I opted to make it simpler and cut up some stars and circles instead on metallic and hollographic paper. You can do the same by using paper punches or even your electronic die-cutting machine.
What are you planning to give dad on Father’s Day? Happy crafting, friends!
