Nautical Shaker Box

Hi friends!
Rachelle here and am so delighted to share 
my Shaker Box design made with

 Take a look!

"Life is Good"

I started by using a 5x7 canvas then measured it 
on top of the fabric cut and it out a square.
The fabric cuts so easily without stray threads.
Next, I applied the fabric like gift wrapping to the canvas 
using my tacky glue.
{Be sure to apply the fabric to the front with the edges glued around the square opening in the back.}

More views:

 Next, its time apply the acetate clear cover. First, I placed
sand, sea shells, pebbles, and sticks inside the square opening.
Now it's time to apply the acetate window on top of the square
using tacky glue. Allow to dry followed by applying burlap twine and white twine around the square.

The twine helps to secure the acetate down. Now it's time
to apply the cute nautical embellishments around the edges.

I already had a little nautical set so I used it along with
adhesive greenery. The lighthouse and achor look great.
There you have a finished shaker box!
I trust you have enjoyed this project. The perfect wall hanger!
That's it for this post.
