Crafter’s Companion 2022 Advent Calendar door 8-Infinity Shaker Card

Updated: Jan 13, 2023




Today I made a 5 x 7 infinity shaker card with the contents of door 8. What makes this shaker different is that the whole front of the card is the shaker and is actually less bulky than a traditional shaker card. This is a simple card to put together but is a lot of fun for the recipient. The shaker can be made into any size card but should be a square or rectangle. Because of the simple 5x7 cut there is not a template or a SVG for this card.


Just like when the item was an embossing folder the type of item is in the directions. I couldn't write the directions without naming it. So open your door before you read the directions.


I hope you enjoy this video and give the infinity shaker a try. I hope to see you tomorrow for door 9.
