Christmas shaker tags with the fuse tool!

Today I have some shaker tags  which I have made using the We R Memory Keepers Fuse tool.

It is such a fun tool...once you figure out how to use it!!
Here is a really good video showing you how to use it.

I found its good to let it get really hot before using it. 
It works best of soft plastic the one shown below.
I haven't had any success on acetate.

It comes with a steel ruler which can be used a s a guide to seal the plastic. 
I tried to make  circular tags...but found them very difficult.

So, after many attempts, I decided to make simple rectangular tags.
These were really easy to make. 
I started by placing the embellished tag inside the plastic sleeve and sealing it on three sides. 
I left one side open to fill with the shaker elements...lots of gorgeous sequins from A1 Craft supply!
I then sealed the fourth side, punched a hole and added a rivet and twine to finish the tag.
I also added some embellishments and sentiments on the top of the tags for interest.

I used the We are Memory Keepers 123-punch board to make a little box to hold the tags I made. 
I followed Jennifer McGuires video to make this box.

I hope you are inspired to try out the Fuse Tool and the 123 envelope punch board from 
We are Memory Keepers!
