Happy Friday We R friends! I hope you’ve enjoyed all the baby inspiration this week. Today I’m going to finish things off with a set of boy & girl shaker baby cards that I made with my Photo Sleeve Fuse, along with some FUSEables plastic paper and embellishments.
I started by heating up my Fuse tool for 10 minutes. It’s important to let it heat up long enough to get the best results. Then, I used some 2 inch plastic pouches to create shaker pockets, filling them with sequins, and fusing the four sides to the back of the FUSEables card windows. Then I fused the back flap of the card front closed, for a more finished look on the inside of the card.
For the girl card, I added some FUSEables plastic ephemera to the card front with my Fuse tool. No adhesive necessary with the FUSEables plastic paper and Fuse tool! And, I love the way the fused lines look like stitching.
I added a small self-adhesive label where I had typed the word “BABY” with my Typecast typewriter. I love how easy it is to add text to my projects with the Typecast!
To make the boy card, I made the circle window into a baby rattle by cutting a handle from some FUSEables paper with my Cameo.

Next, I cut a ring out with my circle cutter to go around the shaker window and glued it to the card front.
I finished it off with some FUSEables ephemera, again with only my Fuse tool and no adhesive!
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you’ve found some helpful project inspiration. Enjoy your weekend, and be sure to check back next week!
