I made this adorable Penguin Shaker Ornament from Created Kuts which can also be used as a tag. I decided to add the name of my Grandson instead of the adorable original way with the word believe. This is my very first shaker project of any sort, it was easy and fun.
I used some adorable Peachy Keen Faces for not only the adorable penguin which I used PK-521 Winter Faces 1 1/8" that I colored in and chalked the cheeks but also PK-490 1/2" everyday character faces for the snowflakes X 3 with cheeks again chalked and white gel pen for eyes. I inked all of the snowflakes with some cats eye blue ink. The 4th snowflake I used my Cri-Kits green gel pen to write out 2014... it wasn't showing up enough so I went back over it in black gel pen by hand. Also on the penguin... I added green glitter to the ear muffs. Inside the shaker I add chunky white glitter with a few sequins scattered through and a touch of the fine green glitter that I used on ear muffs. I embossed green frame with my Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder. I used some 1/8" Blue Offray ribbon for the hanger and I also strung some through the bottom and attached a back snowflake then foam tape, then ribbon end then another piece of foam tape then the snowflake with the adorable PK face showing for both ribbon ends. I then took a Blue star button and threaded a piece green and white bakers twine through the button attaching and tying it to the blue offray ribbon.
