The new theme for the Cut It Up challenge is Tags!  I love making tags and use tons of them at Christmas, but this time I decided to use a shaker tag that opens on top a card of encouragement!  

Our Challenge is generously sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays.  The tags were cut from Tag Buddies Fri-Dies.  This die set comes with 3 tags: I cut the largest tag from white cardstock and embossed it with a circle folder.  Then I nested the the smallest tag into the middle tag and only cut part way so the tag would fold/open up the shaker window!  Inside the shaker window I used sequins, beads, and the smallest Jumping Jacks Fri-Dies.  They are adorable!  I used them on the front of the shaker door, also.

I finished off the card with the "hope" sentiment from the Hope Fri-Die, some twine, a few sequins, and a fun feather! 

Here is the door open to see the shaker elements!

Hope is going out to the following challenges:
