Hello Everyone, I am proud to do the first of the Tutorials on the Character Cafe blog.
For this first tutorial I am showing how to make a penny slider card,
the supplies you will need are -
1 Small Image for slider, 2 x one pence coins (approx size 2mm for those not in UK)
1 sheet of A4 card made into a A5 card. 3d foam tape or pads,
1 circle (or make your own) foam pad, 1 sheet of A5 card. Ruler, Craft Knife.
I printed of the trick or treat digi image freebie from the Character Cafe blog hop this weekend.
and stuck it to my A5 piece of card.
Then using my ruler and pencil, drew a oblong approx 1/2" in depth, and as long as you want it
BUT REMEMBER TO LEAVE ABOUT 3/4" FROM EITHER EDGE OF THE CARD, as you can see from the above photo, then cut it out using your craft knife or whatever you feel comfortable with,
Then is should look like the photo below.
Get your two coins and put your round 3d pad in the centre and stick the two together,
then put this in the slot you have made, by angling it and moving the card about so both sides of the coins sit on the top and bottom of the slot.
should end up looking like the photo above and below, the coins should be able to roll up and down the slot freely now.
Now add your 3d foam tape or pads like shown in the photo below.
Take of the backing tape and stick to your card, then stick on your small image.
and here is the finished result.
Tilt the card and your penny should roll back and forth.
I used a small trick or treat bag for mine to go along with the cheeky ghost image.
I also printed of two smaller versions of the digi image to use on the inside of the card.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and that you visit the Character Cafe next week to see Meredith's tutorial and also take a peek
at the lovely digi images they have as well.
DON'T FORGET TO POP OVER TO THE CHARACTER CAFE FOR THEIR CHALLENGES.
