DIY Foam Tape PLUS a Shaker Bee Fun Fold Card

I love to add a pop of dimension to my cards to make them shakers or just to elevate an elements to make it higher - so to do that you need a 3D elements to raise up that stamp or image.  Foam dots, squares or mounting tape are the easiest and lightness way to raise up those embellishments, but that foam tape can get super expensive - so why not learn to make your own!!  In this post I show you how to make your own foam tape and then use it on a bee themed shaker card!!

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.


Check out the video on how I made these cute bee cards!!


I used my Xyron Tape runner to stick all the layers of paper together, and they stick wonderfully!!  I also made these card not only a shaker card, but a fun fold card!!  So there is a fun extra hidden fold in the card!


Directions and measurements for this card are as follows:

  1. Cut Cardstock into an A2 sized card 5.5 X 8.5 fold in half
  2. Cut other half into 4.25 x 7.75 fold in half - this is the inside hidden card
  3. Back mat (yellow) dimensions - 4 1/8 x 5 1/4


I also used my Xyron 3" Sticker Maker for all the sequins and the cut out stamped and colored items such as the bees and the hive.



I also made my own foam 3D sheets.  This is perfect for making shaker cards like the one on the front of these bee cards.  Check out the video below to see how easy it is to make your own foam sheets - then you can cut it to be any shape you want!!!



Making your own foam sheets is so easy with Xyron, and you can use any size sticker maker or the Creative Station you want to make these!!  Best part is you can cut the sheets to any size you want!



What fun cards are you making?
