Sliding Gift Card Holder Tutorial

Sliding Gift Card Holder 
 Hi friends...with the gifting season  nearly upon us I am sharing a special sliding Gift Card holder in the shape of a cup. It has a double sliding mechanism and when you pull the frothy cream out slides a sentiment panel and gift card!

I made the frothy cream by stencilling with Distress Inks  through the Crealies Cardzz 5A die set and embossing with Stampendous embossing powder. 
The sentiment panel is attached to the frothy cream and the gift card slides out through a separate slot cut on the front of the cup using the Crealies gift card slider dies.

On pulling the frothy cream topping on the coffee cup the gift card slides out of its slot and behind it slides out a separate card where you can stamp a sentiment.
Here is a video showing the slider in action
I used ribbon to design the sliding mechanism and when you read the steps below you will be surprised at how simple it is.
Here is how you can make this sliding gift card with sliding sentiment

You need 2 cup shapes cut in sturdy card stock.
I  die cut 2 cups using the Crealies Cardzz 05 die.

Cut a slot in the top of the cup in such a way that a gift card can slide in and out easily. I made the slot using the Crealies  Gift card slider die Xtra No.21.

Slide a gift card through the slider slot and using this as a guide add adhesive foam tape on the edges and lower part of the cup as shown below

 Die cut 2 "whipped cream" using the Crealies Cardzz 05 A and sandwich a tag in between them using foam tape to give bulk and strength. You will have to experiment a bit with the length so that it fits within the cup! Stick a ribbon on the upper part of the cup as shown above.

Slide in the gift card and trim the ribbon so that it protrudes out about an inch or so. Apply sticky tape to the backside of the tag[ shown in red].
Put the cream + tag on the top of the cup and glue the ribbon to the tag.

Reinforce the "ribbon - tag" adhesion with extra tape.

Now your slider mechanism is ready to assemble. I stamped a cup with gorgeous coffee beans using the  Crealies Bits and Pieces No 119 and stuck it over the first cup holding the slider mechanism.
