Happy New Year

And Welcome to the first Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge of 2022. 

We made it easy for the the first challenge after the holidays, which was good for me as it was a comedy of errors from the start, it happens when you pick the patterned paper and as soon as it's glued to the cardstock you know it was a wrong choice (it was not savable) 

I made a "TeePee" card they are normally simple, 3- 4 inch squares of cardstock 3- 3 3/4 inch pieces of patterned paper, you can make them any size you want but this one fits an A2 envelope.  I realized I hadn't used this stamp in 2021 so needed to use it as it works really well for a shaker. 
Now to the the next part of the "comedy of errors" As I am taking pictures the tape on the dome let loose and there were mini beads all over fortunately they were all in the photo box. I must remember to tape or glue the edges of the shaker dome as the "sticky" was compromised.

Here is how it folds up to fit in the envelope. To close the card I used a small dot of velcro.

Super fun fold card and love the pretty papers you chose. Sounds like the accident with the beads was a mess, but you put it all back together beautifully. Lovely shaker card. Thanks for sharing it with us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, Dottie, and also sharing your mishap with the card, happens to all of us!!
