 For this weeks assignment we could pick any file we wanted. I was so excited to try the Balloon Fun Printable and Cutting file. I LOVE shape cards and I Love Shaker cards, so this is the best of both worlds.

I used the Oval Balloon and all the layers, I loved having the different layers of balloons, but you could use just one if you wanted.  

I printed the Oval HB printable on a transparency and used it as the top of my shaker balloon. 

I punched little circles out if the red and yellow patterned paper and added Simon Says Stamp white and yellow flower sequins and some red micro seed beads to the shaker. 

I also made the matching envelope.  

I then printed the HB2U from the printable file on to the yellow pattern paper and cut it with a small die and attached with jump rings. 

I added some twine and a few pearl pen drops. 

Thanks for stopping by...
