Shaker Card Video Tutorial

Today we're excited to share with you a video tutorial made Glue Girl Lesley Langdon!

We're considering add a new size to our U Cut It Foam line up. A larger size would give you more options for using it with your die cut systems and much more. Today Lesley is working with an 8 1/2 by 11 size of our U Cut It Foam and sharing a fun video tutorial on how to use it to make a stylish shaker card.







Just Be You Shaker Card

Glue Arts would like to hear from you. If you would share your thoughts about our U Cut It Foam. We currently package it in our 3D Combo Pac and are looking at new options, larger sheets, border strips and more.

  3. Very cool! I am working on a shaker ornament right now! LOVE LOVE LOVE the shaker!!!!
    As far as the foam goes...I am soooo one to cut my own! That is a genius idea! I hate the pre cut squares, because, honestly....I am constantly cutting them down! Or...using 4 or 5 to get what I need. The ability to cut my own size is fantastic! I need some of that!!!!

  4. Thanks for the fun tutorial! I have never cut my own foam but I would be interested in doing so. I would particularly be interested in border strips. I would probably not use a large 12X12 sheet of foam, rather smaller, maybe 5X7 pieces.

  5. Wow, what a great ideal. Maybe I should think about starting my Christmas cards and using this ideal.

  7. As I am always cutting foam squares to custom-fit on elements of my creations, I think it's a great idea! Really pretty card, too. :)

  10. The shaker card idea is adorable; lots of possibilities. I could also see using the foam to give dimension to all sorts of shapes, and nesting different embellishments inside bigger shapes, like a raised border or frame around a card.

  11. I really really like that your foam comes in different heights. It makes it so much easier to add dimension to my projects!

  15. I would use the U Cut It foam to add dimension to my cards. Having a sheet that can be custom cut to size would be very useful for adding multiple sizes of embellishments and layering them. I would love to try some!

  16. This foam looks like it would be great for so many projects. Having it in a larger size would just open up so many possibilities.

  17. I have been wanting to try a shaker card for a long time! I think thin strips of pre-cut foam like this would be GREAT.

  20. What a cool idea! I bought some of this foam and now you've given me a fun idea to use it! I just have the small sheet but I'm thinking I could do some fun shapes with my Cricut!

  21. Thanks for the video! And the foam looks wonderful to work with!

  22. Great video, love shaker cards!! I think I would use a 12X 12 page, as I love to use them for dimension on my cards & LO's!!

  24. This sounds like fun! I made my first shaker card the other day--wish I had this foam! The stuff I used--NOT FUN! Thanks for the chance to win:)

  25. I have cut foam, I would say the border strips. While a large sheet is versatile I am not sure I would like to have a large sheet sitting around. Great tutorial!

  26. I love this thanks for sharing.. I have never made a shaker card before but now I want to..

  27. I adore shaker anything! I recently made shaker tags for a trip using sand that we collected from the beach and from Salt Lake. Each tag had a photo from the location where the sand was collected and a shell or momento in each. They turned out sooooo cool.

  28. I have trouble getting my 3D boxes and other embellishments to stick without the foam sticking out. I hate that. Sheets are the solution to our problem

  34. Wow, I just love this foam and I will be able to use my cricut and cuttlebug to cut all kinds of die cuts to fit the foam allowing me to use dimension for letters and other intricate designs. Thanks glueart for another great product.

  35. This looks so easy and convenient!

  36. 12x12 foam would let me add a raised boarder to my LO... How cool would that be! And then there would still be lots of the sheet left to cut up. I love the combo pack and it is sooooo much nicer to gut foam to the perfect size!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have not have the opportunity to use this awesome foam, but I'm a fan of combo packs so would love to see that- with mini, medium, and large and maybe even circular and square shapes!

  38. I learned how to do a shaker card in a class I took. It was one of my favorite cards. Aside from shakers, having a larger piece of foam lets you give dimension to larger embellishments without a lot of piecing of sticky stuff. Seems like a good idea. Love your clear, easy to understand video.

  39. Oh my what an easy way to make a shaker card, saves cutting all those strips and making sure you have them all perfectly lined up so that nothing can fall out. I would love to have a go at making a shaker card with this product.

  40. I would love seeing what kind of flowers I could come up with using this foam.

  41. I would also like to attempt an photo collage with family pictures and have them at all different depths, hard to explain, each picture would be a different dept and alternate them at random, have the idea in my head just have to implement, would be easier with the foam sheet than trying to do it with little individual dots.
    Will see, thanks for making me think outside the box!!
