Today is Day 4 of Teacher Appreciation Week!!
For today's gift, I made a Seed Slider! You could also use this as a Hot Chocolate Slider! It was SO VERY EASY to make!!!
Here is what it looks like:
To make this slider, you will need to follow some very simple instructions!
The supplies you need are:
Solid Card stock
Pattern Card stock
Double Sided Tape
Stamps for decorating
First, you will need to cut a solid piece of card stock to act as the base. It needs to be 7 3/4" X 5 1/2". Then, you need a piece of patterned paper which needs to be cut at 7 3/4" X 4 1/2". You can glue the patterned paper on top of the base and get ready for step two.
Next, take your scoreboard or your trimmer and score along the 7 3/4" side at 3 5/8" and then again at 1/2". Fold along your score lines. On the 1/2" piece, apply a piece of double sided tape all along it. Then, fold it together. It will look like a sleeve.
Now, you will need to take a hole punch and punch a hole big enough for your ribbon to fit through it. For this part, I DO NOT CUT MY RIBBON. I measure it inside the hole with the seed packet in there! I thread the ribbon through both holes, and I place the slider inside WHILE I AM HOLDING THE RIBBON. This is what makes the slider! Once the seed packet is in there, THAT is when I cut my ribbon! That way there is no waste!!!
To finish, you tie a bow with your ribbon (mine bow did not want to stay as I was taking the picture, lol). You can add any stamps you wish to decorate it. You can round your corners of the slider.
OK all, come on back tomorrow to catch the last project for Teacher Appreciation Week!!
Hope to find you all Craftin' and Stampin'!
