T.N.T. Thursday

Especially for You Pocket Slider Card

Today's tutorial  is one that can be used for any occasion just by changing the papers, embellishments and sentiment. This particular one is used as a card, but you could add a cocoa or hot cider packet, or even small Ghirardelli square with a glue dot. So cute!


Cut a piece of  Real Red card stock 5 1/2" X 8 1/2"

Score it in landscape position at 1/2" and 4 1/2"


Run a piece of Sticky Strip down the edge of the  4 1/2" side. 
Fold over making sure to seal the edge.

Using More Amour DSP, cut a strip 2 1/2" X 8 1/2" for the belly band.

Wrap the band around the main piece, making sure that the ends meet 
in the middle at the back overlapping slightly. Lightly score the edges. This band should be tight, but be able to be  sliped off the main card. Run either a line of  Mono liquid adhesive or 
 Snail down the open edge and seal.

 Stamp the Especially for You sentiment on the lower right corner in black Ink.

  For the inside of the slider, cut a piece of Whisper White CS, 3 3/4" X 5 1/4". Cut a coordinating piece of DSP 3 1/2" X 3 1/2" and adhere to the top half. You can add a sentiment on the bottom half or use the packets or candy to complete it.

To make a hole on both sides of the packet for the ribbon to be inserted. I used one of the Itty Bitty Punch pack punches for this hole.

Cut a piece of coordinating ribbon approximately 16" long. I used the Pool Party ribbon from the Sycamore Ribbon and Button Pack I received free for my $50 order during our Sale-a-Bration promotion. Place the ribbon through the both holes making sure the ends are even. Slip the card between the ribbon and push card into the packet holder and tie a simple bow. The card will have the ribbon on either side so it can be pulled out using the ribbon as shown in the photo below.


I stamped 4 hearts with the Hearts a Flutter stamp and matching die to decorate the band.   
Pool Party and Real Red ink and CS were used on this to coordinate with the DSP.

Assemble the hearts on the front of the band and add  rhinestones to the middle of the solid hearts and to the letter "I" on the sentiment.

I hope you enjoy making this versatile packet and have a CRAFTY week.
