Upcycling: Wrapping Paper Shaker Card!

Upcycling? Shaker card? What does it all mean? For those of you who may be new to the crafting world or re-entering it, these terms may seem odd. However, let’s get you up to speed!! 🙂

Shaker Carda card with a window and items – usually sequins – inside the window that make you want to shake the card; thus, a shaker card! (Source: my brain – haha!!)

Most of us know what it’s like to wrap a present and have a tiny bit of leftover wrapping paper. Many people would simply wad it up and throw it in the trash… but not us! We can use it to craft with, right?! In this tutorial, I will show you how to make a super cute shaker card with your scraps of wrapping paper.

And since we are frugal crafters here, I’ve found another huge money-saving idea for your shaker cards. The clear sheet (window) used for shaker cards is acetate… and acetate is expensive! I got to thinking about what else I could use and I decided to try clear overhead projector transparency sheets. Wanna know something? They worked GREAT and I could get an entire box for way cheaper than just a few sheets of acetate. Okay, so enough of that rabbit trail – just had to share that with you!!

So, now that we know what we are working with, let’s get started…

Supplies Needed

(click for links)

White Cardstock           Fiskars Paper Trimmer         Bone Folder

Xacto Knife or Die Cut           Wrapping Paper         Glue runner

Scissors          Clear Transparency Sheets         Double-Sided Foam Tape

Ribbon           Sequins           Pink Cardstock

Rubber Stamp          Ink Pad           White Gel Pen


Step 1: Begin with your white card base in the size you choose. Use a die cut or Xacto knife to cut a square in the center for a window. Adhere wrapping paper to front and trim excess from window.



Step 2: Cut your sheet of acetate (or transparency sheet) larger than your window. Add adhesive around the backside of window and secure in place. In other words, glue the adhesive on the interior side of the card.




Step 3: On the interior/back side of your card frame the window with Scotch double-sided foam tape.




Step 4: Lay aside your card base for now to work on the backdrop for your window. I chose to stamp “Birthday Wishes!” in the center of pink cardstock and add hand-drawn stars around it. I also surrounded my sentiment with ribbon.




Step 5: Add your sequins to the inside of card window. Remove your Scotch double-sided foam tape backing (so it will reveal the other sticky side) and adhere your backdrop you just made in the previous step. Be sure NOT to get it upside down! 🙂 Line the inside of the card, if you’d like… and you’re all done and ready to SHAKE!!!





I hope this project was a fun and enjoyable way to upcycle your scraps of wrapping paper. Handmade cards always brighten people’s day and this one is sure to bring delight! Shaker cards are perfect for any holiday or celebration. Have fun, crafters!!
