Home Decor Vacation Shaker Frame

Vacation Shaker Box

Have you ever had something like sand, seashells or any other very small piece of memorabilia that you didn’t know how to share?   This week’s project was created with just this in mind.

While on vacation, Jeff and I picked up some very tiny seashells that were perfectly shaped, but too small for basic display, so I began thinking of ideas of how to display them.  I thought of shaker cards, but that was just not going to work.  That is when I realized I could do a simple frame with a shaker box on it.  This would allow me to put the year, location, add a photo, and have the memorabilia all in one place.

Yurt Shaped Lantern

Yurt LanternOur family likes to go tent camping, so I started this project with the idea of a dome tent. I looked through the Pazzles Craft Room for a 3D project with a dome shape that I might use for the tent. I found the Hot Air Balloon Box design with a nice dome shape, so decided to use the top portion of that file for my tent. After I cut it out, my husband commented that it looked more like a Yurt. When I looked up Yurt, I learned that it is a portable, round tent, covered with skins or felt, and used as a dwelling.  The structure includes latticework for walls. That gave me the idea to add a section of lattice around the wallsof my design to make a Yurt. You will find the resulting Yurt file in the Pazzles Craft Room.

Pen Tool: Popsicle Card

Popsicle Shaped Card

Summer time is always a good time for a cool treat.  Why not have a party and invite people over to enjoy?  If you are not using your Pen Tool this is a great time to pull it out and have fun.  For this project I used the Popsicles file in the Craft Room then created a duplicate and welded the two together to make the card shape. The outside of the card I used purple card stock for the base and layered the orange and white on top. I used my Pen Tool to draw the letters for ‘Let’s Celebrate’ and the inside of the card.
