Make an Easy Mold Press Shaker Card

Hello friends! It’s Victoria and I am back with a spring inspired shaker card using the WRMK Mold Press! The Mold Press can be used to make a variety of projects from cards, party favors, DIY projects, and more! You can shop the Mold Press at JOANN Stores here: https://www.joann.com/we-r-memory-keepers-mold-press-3d/17394974.html

To begin, turn on the Mold Press and give it a few minutes to warm up. Load the Mold Press Frame with WRMK Plastic Sheets. NOTE: Be sure to remove the plastic film on both sides of the plastic sheet before loading it into the frame.

Select an object that can be used to create a mold. For my project, I used an acrylic block. Place the object on the MOLD Press platform.

Next, load a plastic sheet into the Mold Press Frame then attach the frame to the top of the Mold Press device. The frame has a magnetic mechanism that will hold it in place. At this point, the Mold Press will heat the plastic sheet, forming a small dome that will droop down roughly 1 inch. When this happens, the plastic will be ready to press over your object.

Next, attach the Mold Press to a vacuum. The suction from the vacuum will help the plastic form around your object. When ready, release the frame over the object. The plastic will wrap around the object, thus creating a mold!

Release the object from the frame and trim the excess plastic. Your mold is now ready to use!

For this project, I created a thank you card featuring a fun shaker window.

On a 5×7 inch card panel, I cut a square opening to accommodate my plastic shaker mold. I filled the shaker with die cuts and sequin. On the outside of the shaker, I adhered additional die cuts for added interest and dimension. To finish the card, I added pattern paper strips and a greeting.

I hope you are inspired to use the Mold Press to make a stunning spring projects! Thanks so much for stopping by!
