Create your own shaker pocket with The Fuse

I don't know about you, but shakers scare me!!! Every time I have attempted to make a shaker, I have failed. The sequins fall out all over the place, the pocket falls apart, the works! Then I discovered the We R Memory Keeper's Fuse. The fuse welds/fuses together to create your own custom pockets perfect for Scrapbooking, Project Life and shakers! What comes with the Fuse? The fuse tool, fusing tip, cutting tip, ruler stencil and tool stand. The Cutting tip allows you to create a slit in any sleeve and the fuse tips "fuses" together to create pockets. You can seal in keepsakes and memorabilia by creating your own custom sized pockets. You can also create a waterfall effect with the Waterfall Sleeves!

In today's card/video, I created a very simple shaker pocket. Here is what you will need: (The Fuse, Page Protectors, sequins/confetti, and die cuts). To start, I die cut my focal point and stamped the sentiment with some Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Once that was prepped, I created the fuse by setting my die cut panel onto my page protector and fused around the edges! Remember to leave the top unfused so you can drop in your goodies. I used confetti style sequins (because they are flat) but you can use anything. You can even die cut some fun shapes and tuck them inside! This would also be great for a gift card! How fun to receive a gift card like that with fun bling shaking around inside!!! After I fused all the sides and top together, I adhered it to a notecard and stamped a sentiment on the inside! Very simple!

I recommend letting the fuse warm up for at least 10 minutes. I tried to fuse some pockets together before it was fully warmed up and it didn't fuse well... Also, don't touch the tip! It's super hot! LOL! I've got a quick video showcasing you how I made the card! I hope you enjoy!
