Fuse Tool

I could hardly wait to use my new Photo Sleeve Fuse™ Tool by We R Memory Keepers to make this fun shaker card.  If you like shaker cards but hate what a pain in the neck it is to put them together – making sure you line the foam tape up perfectly so that there is no chance for any sequins, beads, (or whatever else you might be using) to escape – then this is the tool for you!  All you need to do is make a pocket to hold your shakey things in which is super easy peesy to do with the FUSE tool.  I used photo album inserts that I found at Michaels for $1.49 for six pages.  All I did was cut out a circle large enough to cover the hole in my card, fuse along the edges, making sure to leave a spot open so I could fill it with my sequins.  Once all the sequins were added, I finished fusing the last edge together and – voila! – my shaker pocket was ready to attach to my card.

  Here are a couple of links to videos showing you how to use the tool to make a shaker card:
