Double shaker mini treat bag


Why have one shaker when you can have two? That’s what ran through my head as I created this fun project. 

The picture isn’t great, and I was a bit tight with the sequins, but the centre star is actually a shaker, using vellum instead of the traditional window sheets. This gives a subtle - some would say disappointing - look  to the shaker element but hey, I make mistakes so you don’t have to; either be more generous with your shaker bits, or use a Window Sheet for a clearer view. 

It’s actually quite simple to make. All of the die-cutting is done with the dies from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set and the glimmer star shaker element is created in the usual way. 

The bag is lined with a folded piece of Whisper White cardstock (which I forgot to put on the recipe but I don’t have time to go back and change it now, sorry) and the little coloured stars (also created with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set) are simply placed inside the bag. Yep, the fatal flaw is that if you tip it upside down, they’ll probably fall out but then the recipient will simply be showered with coloured starry confetti… which would serve them right for being so silly.
