Shake it Off! A Shaker Dashboard Tutorial!
August 25, 2016
Shaker dashboards really scream planner girl, don’t they!! This one is a mini shaker that I made with two Heidi Swapp chipboard frames from my July Hip Kit Club kit.
I made a plastic pocket with some leftover page protectors and my fuse tool, and added some Acrylic Dots from the Hip Kit Club kit. At first I thought they might be too thick, but they worked out perfectly. For extra pizzazz, I stuck in two PL cards trimmed down and glued back to back. Then, I sealed the top with my fuse.
The frames were also stuck back to back, sandwiching the shaker pocket in with hot glue, but first to get the dashboard to fit in my happy planner I used a piece of plastic backing from some enamel dots, those things never last long in my studio so I have lots of empty sheets! ;)
I trimmed it to size and it was also sandwiched between the frames along with the shaker pocket when gluing. Then I punched some disk holes. You can use regular hole punches if you have a ring planner.
It can lay inside the planner anywhere, including peeking out the top for a bookmark.
