Here are the directions for the shaker photo slide:
Here is an ATC that I created from this month's kit. To make the shaker, remove and slide out the color negative from the slide mount. Take the mustard yellow polka dot embossed square cardstock, place the slide on top and trace the inside rectangle and outer edge of slide, cut along the traced outer line and careful cut the inside and set aside. Glue the white square paper provided in the kit to the back of the slide, trimming the excess. Next place the tiny Fimo mushrooms and sequins (if you want) inside the slide. Now cut and glue the transparency square provided to the front of the slide. Next take the mustard yellow cardstock and glue on top of that. There you go! Let me know if you have any questions.
