[Tutorial + Template] Sliding Cauldron Card

We are brewing up a spooky 2018 Halloween season with this sliding cauldron card!  Grab onto the green smoke coming from the cauldron and pull out some wicked potions.  This card has a pullout area measuring 2x2" (5x5 cm) - the whole card measures 5x5" (12.7x12.7 cm).

Written Instruction:

After purchasing your greeting card template, print and cut onto desired cardstock.  Here I've used black for the cauldron body, varying greens for the sliding mechanism, and brown for the stick.

 

Step 1

Using the above glue guide, attach the slider front to the back.  Glue the bubbles transitioning the front slider into the back.

 

Step 2

Take the sliding mechanism and fit through the slit on the body middle.

 

Step 3

Using the above glue guide, glue the back of the middle piece to the body back -be sure to avoid getting glue onto the sliding mechanism or the space along which it slides.

 

Step 4

Glue the body rim to the body front.

Then glue up the back side of the body front and slide it over the sliding mechanism and glue to the body middle.

 

Step 5

Glue the stick into place - be sure not to glue to the sliding mechanism.

 

Happy Crafting!
