3 Add bubbles using the Ivory drops, then cut a length of twine and tie into a bow around the top of the box to finish.
Create a Shaker Tag -
1 Using a circle die, 9.5cm diameter, cut a circle from pink ombré paper, a frame from blue patterned and one from acetate.
2 Stamp the sentiment onto the pink, then adhere the frame and acetate together. Stamp, colour and cut out the jellyfish, fish and seaweed, then arrange onto the base.
3 Add foam pads onto the rear of the acetate panel, then sprinkle confetti onto the centre of the base and secure to the foam-padded acetate on top.
4 Punch a hole in the top of the tag and thread twine through. Add bubbles using drops on the acetate and porthole bolts using Dark Walnut drops to finish.
Make a Balloon Greeting -
1 Take a white card blank, 14cm square, then cut out a smaller layer of pink wooden patterned paper. Die-cut a circle from blue ombré paper and a green frame. Add foam pads to the reverse of the frame.
