DIY Bird Person Shaker Quote Card

May 4, 2018


Hi Crafty Friends!


I was looking at my magnetic pin board and noticed that about half the stuff on there was bird related.  It brought to mind the question, “Are you a dog person or a cat person?”  Well, clearly I am a bird person!  So I made a sign to pin up amongst my bird paraphernalia!


To start off I stamped out the saying on some white cardstock using the peg stamps.  I chopped these up in to word tiles and set them aside.  I used one of the exclusive papers to cut out the word ‘bird’ and the other to act as a background.  In order to make the background a shaker pocket I used my sewing machine to attach some vellum, added as many sequins as I could and sewed up the gap.


Next up I used a super sticky double sided tape to adhere the words on top.  I could have used wet glue but there is a chance the moisture would wrinkle up the vellum.  Wrinkled vellum is akin to the baker’s soggy bottom – something to be avoided at all costs!


And there it is, sat on my pin board surrounded by ‘bird stuff’!
