Trendspotting SEQUINS w/ PKS!

Hi everyone!
This is my second post for today :)

~If you are looking for my Inspiration Wednesday project with My Creative Time please click HERE or scroll down to the next post~

I'm on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog today to share a trendspotting project with you today.  
My inspiration came from a picture I saw on Pinterest of these sequins.

I LOVE using sequins on my projects and making shaker cards and tags. Since I have a growing supply of sequins, I am always looking for ways to store them. Pinterest to the rescue :) I actually started storing my sequins in these little glass jars but quickly realized that there is no good way in my small craft space to organize them. So I took to another storage solution....
This is only a few of my sequins...It is the perfect storage solution for me! The container trays can be stacked on top and placed on a shelf..out of the way but still accessible when I am searching for the colors I need for a project.

Now onto my project....I love how fun a card or tag can be when it is made into an interactive one, such as a shaker. I have 2 shaker tags to share, perfect for adding to a treat or gift bag.
Since Halloween is right around the corner and Christmas will be here before we know it, I made these 2 holiday tags. Let's take a closer look at them.
 My first tag is this cute Halloween one. I used some green and orange sequins for this shaker and added them to the center of a tag I designed in the silhouette studio. This is a very simple tag design, a basic tag shape with a smaller tag shape cut out of the center. If you have never made a shaker card, there are several tutorials on Pinterest and/or YouTube. They are very easy to make!
Anyways once my shaker part was finished I embellished the front with the pumpkin from the Cottage Cutz set and stamped his face using the Pumpkin Face stamp set. Before completely assembling the tag, I did stamp the inside of the shaker part with my Halloween sentiment.
I finished my tag off with some more randomly places sequins, a May Arts ribbon, a fun sparkly button and some Totally Black Trendy Twine.

Here is my Christmas shaker tag. It was done the same way as the Halloween one, except I added green and red sequins inside the shaker part. I found this cute Christmas tree in the Silhouette store and just added my sweet PKS face to him. Some chalk and white gel pen to his cheeks for a little more cuteness and he was placed onto my tag. 
I finished off the tag in the same way as well. Some May Arts ribbon, a green sparkly button and some Totally White Trendy Twine.

So there is my trendspotting project. I know I love adding sequins to my projects.
These are a few other cards I have made using my PKS and sequins :)
Sequins make awesome embellishments
if you have yet to make a shaker should really give it a try!
They are so fun and whomever receives one will surely LOVE it!!!

Hope you like these project and find some inspiration from it, thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT hump day!
