See what I mean?  Who doesn’t love a snow globe style shaker element on the cover of a teeny tiny mini album?

I forgot to tell you how to make the shaker cover in my tutorial video, so I will do that here.

(Product Links below.)  Here’s how I created this fun shaker top element:

  • First, add the sticker to a circular die cut or chipboard piece that is about 1/2″ larger in diameter than the sticker.  I painted my die cut white first to make sure that if it showed, it would look nice.
  • Now, use the corresponding Spellbinder Small Standard Circle die to cut out a clear acetate circle.  This will be the cover for your shaker element.
  • Next, add 1/8″ Scor-tape to the back side of this die cut circle.
  • Then, add Kool-Tac clear foam tape around the outer edge of the circle with the sticker.
  • Now, carefully add some Stampendous Shaved Ice Frantage elements to the center of the snow globe base.  Be careful not to get any flakes on the Kool-Tac, or it will not stick well.
  • Next, remove the liner tape from the Scor-Tape and the Kool-Tac tape and press the acetate cover over the sticker base.
  • Now, hot glue the snow globe base to the album cover.
  • Then use hot glue to add the white leaf wreath around the outer edge.
  • Finally, decorate with die cut felt flowers.

You will learn how to turn the mini tag album base into this chunky little album in the tutorial.

I also transformed the mini tag album pages into little pockets.

Sticker stamps make great tuck spots if you back them with cardstock.  You can also add stickers to folded cardstock to create these mini file folders.

Page turn elements are made with a die from Tabs 2.  And Tammy’s Prim heart makes the cutest little embellishment when cut from felt.
