Head Over Paws Sequin Shaker...

Can I tell you how much I'm LOVING Mama Elephant - and judging by how much they were "borrowed" when we went away, there are many new Mama Elephant fans too :)

Playing along with this months Mama Elephant Photo Inspiration Challenge, I drew my inspiration from the fabulous jars of potions, combining circles and glass/transparent elements to create a "love potion" sequin shaker. Just right for joining in the fabulous Pretty Pink Posh Sequin Shaker Blog Hop too. This super cute Mama Elephant Pandamonium panda tumbles "head over paws" when you roll the shaker card along the table.

Created using a die cut cardstock circle base, layered with two die cut craft foam donut circles glued together to form the sides of the shaker. I also cut two small semi circles of craft foam to fill the void behind the front layer of cardstock, just so the sequins would not all "disappear". The shaker is filled with a combination of red and gold sequins, including these gorgeous teddy bear sequins from my local $2 shop, together with some red and gold glass beads from my stash. The sequins shaker is sealed with a die cut circle of transparency sheet, topped with a cardstock donut circle. The front panel is created using circle die cuts and Mama Elephant Landscape Trio stitched cloud die, stamped with Mama Elephant Sketchy Letters, and hand written "over", highlighted with red Mama Elephant Pandamonium hearts.
