Christmas Present Slider Card

Impress everyone with this dynamic Christmas Present Slider card.  This card was inspired by HSN Craft Day.  It is patterned after an Anna Griffin card with some alterations to hold the slider in.  And has a secret message.

The design of the card keeps the slider from coming all the way out.  This also keeps the top of the present from coming completely off.  Who wouldn’t love getting this card?

What you need:
      • Very heavy cardstock for the base 
      • Scraps of cardstock
      • liquid glue
      • Download file

Paper Selection

The base card paper needs to be at least 100 lb. weight, but the rest of the card can be any weight.  Patterns obviously look great on this card.  Wrapping paper is fancy after all.

Cutting the Card
This project is easy to cut.  The Cricut does all the writing
 
I used a black gel pen for the writing but you could use any color or use the We R Memories Foil Pens.  See how to use them here.
Christmas Present Slider Card Assembly

The design of the card keeps the slider from coming all the way out.  This also keeps the top of the present from coming completely off. 

The bottom of the present should be folded vertically and the top folded horizontally.  The slit in the bottom of the present goes at the top. Before you glue the bottom together, place the slider through the slit at the top.  Then glue the sides together about 1/4 inch from the edge around the three open sides. 

Push the slider as far down as it will go, then wrap the top of the present around the top of the slider.  Next, glue the top of the present closed making sure to glue the slider inside the top. 

Make sure that the top of the present and the bottom are aligned and that the present “closes” completely.

Decorating the Card

First pull the present top up to expose the slider.  Then glue the tree to the top of the slider.  Next glue the straight pieces of “ribbon” to the top and bottom of the card.  And then glue on the bow.   

You can use foam tape to glue on the bow to make it stand out a little more.  Or for more bling, cut out some little decorations or a tag and attach them to the front of your card.

Your Christmas present slider card is done.  Enjoy!
