Surprise Slider Card
Cut two pieces of card 13 x 9 cm for the inserts. Round the corners of one end. Decorate the inserts as you wish, remembering only two thirds of it will be visible and that they will be coming out at opposite ends.
Slide the join to the left hand side – for
smoothness we want it to slide along the flat surface, not to go over to the other
side. Attach some double sided tape to the join for the slider to stick to.
Take the inside slider that will be coming out of the right hand side of the card.
(make sure it you have got it the right way up for how it will come out!) Line it
up straight with the outside of the card, so that it is in place for it’s ‘in’ position,
keeping the left hand side raised off the double sided tape. When you are happy
with the position, press it down to stick.
Fold the slider over, and with the right hand slider pushed in, attach double sided tape to the righthand side.
Align the left slider with the outside edge, and when you are happy with the position, press it down to stick.
Fold the cover round and stick the flap to the back cover. Don’t wrap it too
tightly or the slider’s won’t slide easily. you can now decorate the front!
