Who needs to buy a Fuse to make shaker pockets?

not me! Thanks to the brilliant frugal crafter blog, I dug out the hot fix soldering tool (meant to put gems on fabric) and sealed up some page protectors into mini pockets.

i sealed three sides of my pocket and checked the seal was good before adding sequins and glitter then sealed the fourth side.  I then cut off the excess with scissors to make everything neat. Sometimes I did a double seam if I wasn’t confident everything was glitter tight.

Somehow I have lots of (unwanted) glitter and sequins which I managed to use lots of, so stash reduced and lots of card or tag ready sparkly little pockets created, for free!
