Birthday Bonanza Shaker Gift Tag

Welcome to Day 1 of my 7 Projects In 7 Days! For my first project, I created this precious Gift Tag using the Birthday Bonanza Suite (Item #153929) from Stampin’ Up’s new Mini Catalog and the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Pack (Item #152314) from the Sale-a-bration Catalog.

*Disclosure* If I had to do this project over, I would add the sequins to the Shaker Part of the project and save the Pom-Poms for the Koala’s Birthday Hat.

I started with die cutting four of the tags. One from Grapefruit Grove Cardstock, one from Terracotta Tile Cardstock, one from the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper and one out of Window Sheets. On the back panel (Grapefruit Grove) I stamped the “To” and “From” Sentiments in Terracotta Tile Ink. I attached the DSP to the Grapefruit Grove tag. I trimmed Foam Tape around the edges of the DSP. Using the Rectangular Stitched Dies, I die cut the rectangle on the Terracotta Tile Tag. I put a few of the Assorted Pompoms to the center, removed the paper on the Foam Tape and placed the Window Sheet Tag over the foam tape. I adhered the Terracotta Tile Tag to the front of the Window Sheet Tag using Multipurpose Glue. I stamped my friend, Mr. Kota Koala in Smokey Slate ink using the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set, his eyes, nose and mouth using Momento Black Ink and used the Bonanza Dies to die cut him out. I stamped his birthday hat in Grapefruit Grove Ink and again used the Bonanza Die Set to die cut the birthday hat. I ran a fair amount of the Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Ruched Ribbon through the holes provided with the Tag Die and tied a knot at the base. I used a small amount of the Metallic Baker’s Twine and tied a bow at the base. I attached the sequins to the top of the hat using glue dots. I popped Kota the Koala up using Stampin’ Diminsionals and also popped up his hat. Isn’t he precious?! I love Koala Bears!!

Now, as I’m putting this shaker together, I’m thinking, “Oh yeah! This is going to work!” My hopes quickly turned to “Doh!” Where it is super cute, the Assorted Pompoms really are just slightly too big and do not shake real well inside in the tag but we live and learn! It was most definitely worth a shot!
