Coin Holders -

1. Cut the 2 halves of the coin holder apart, lay the pieces on your work surface how they came apart as they fit back together in 1 specific way.
2. This is the best time to decorate the front piece, before assembly. These instructions will continue as if you have already decorated the front and allowed it to dry, if necessary. Tips on decorating are below.
3. Use your nonstick scissors to cut the foam tape to the length to fit the edge of the coin pocket. Cut this length into thin strips; be careful not to cover the circular window. 
TIP ~ You can make a double thickness of foam if your shaker elements are thicker.
4. Lay the strips on the very edge so that the corners come together and no glitter or sequins will escape your shaker. Cut tiny strips to squeeze in to gaps if necessary. Leave backing on.
5. Use your Embossing Buddy Anti Static Tool on the window inside the foam tape (backing still on). DIY Video Here
6. Add sequins, glitter, tiny beads or other elements to the circular area.
7. Dry fit the other top piece on to the foam, you will feel if it is off.
8. Remove tape backing and attach the 2 pieces together, pressing to create a tight seal.
9. Shake, Shake, Shake! 
10. Photograph your creations and share in the KoalaTCrafts Facebook page HERE.

Decorating Tips! 
The sky is the limit when it comes to decorating these cute little shakers. Dig into your stash and let your imagination run wild. 
For stamping on the coin holders, use Stayzon Ink and allow it to dry completely to avoid smudges.
