Falliday's Shaker money holders

Vicki has this cool tutorial seen here that is how to turn those Avery elle plastic stamp pockets into shaker money holders.  I received a fuse tool for Christmas last year, and I had just removed it from the box to try this.The first thing I learned was that 10 minutes is not a long enough heating time if its 40 degree's outside of your house. haha. seriously, I went slow, but I also went back and forth and ended up with all kinds of tracks in the plastic that did not seal for me. So, the tool has no on off switch or any indicator light telling you its "hot " enough so, eventually I got the bright idea to plug it in and time it ( I prop up my cell phone in the tray of dies on my table) so, this one was done after about 15 minutes of warm up time and that worked much better for me.

I am thinking that snowflake charm may be from SU. ( I have all my snowflakes in one canning jar together so, I am not certain anymore on that) the snowflake die cut I am guessing is lawn fawn but, I also own a set from someone else so will double check) the metal key tag is a martha stewart one from staples office supplies. and those big snowflakes inside the shaker. they are confetti. because to me confetti looks like flat sequins. 

 This one the Ho Ho Ho (hero arts) was heat embossed on a scrap of red with white powder and then cut into this shape. the Santa hat is a Jolee's sticker.
I did use red liner tape around the tops of these pockets to hold the ribbons and lace in place.
 The sticker had a sequin on it. some of my sequins are vintage so, I really don't have a supply list of those for you all.

Now this was a variation on the them because, I had seen the tutorial Julie did here and loved that too. The sentiment is from the My Favorite things gifting fun set and was heat embossed with red powder on some gold mirror paper. it did end up being a slim window above the word for shaking doing this, and I did get some of the smaller bits in there but, they don't shake and I covered them up with the lace.
I fully intend to do a few of these as I think they are really just pure fun. Thanks for stopping by,
