WOW! Time flies!

WHY is this a "cheater shaker card?" It uses a 6 X 8" Cellophane Bag #102210 to contain the shaker elements instead of the traditional window sheet! It's easy! It's thinner to mail! Simply tape the cello bag around the card stock & shaker elements. I used Shaker Shapes #155569 because they are flat.

This easy 4x4" gatefold card is cut 11x4" and scored 2", 3-3/4", 7-1/4" and 9". Use a standard envelope, not a square envelope, to avoid an extra US postage charge.
