This glitter cardstock had a plastic cover. Otherwise, I would’ve cut the marker line. I prefer to use long scissors to cut long straight lines. At the center, I’m going to cut a circle to have a window for a shaker. The circle is a die from Sizzix.

I used the next big die to trace the shaker pocket using the MONO Twin Permanent Marker . To seal it I used the Fuse Tool. I left a space open to add the sequins and glitter. Once I’m done I seal it completely.

For the stick of the magic wand I used a straw. This one is very sturdy. Since the color didn’t match I covered it with washi tape. I used the  Tombow Xtreme Adhesive to make sure the washi wouldn’t peel off.  Another good option would be a dowel.

Make a sandwich with the two layers of paper and shaker pocket. The shaker pocket has to be a bit bigger than the window. You need a space at the bottom for the straw. Flatten the top part of the straw.

Finally, I added trim and stars. To glue the stars I used the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive Tabs.

Also used stickers to add the year. If you feel like sharing the magic you can put confetti mixes to pop open at 12!
