Great job everyone!

Today it is my turn soooooo,
you will be learning
how to create your very own:

Slider ATC

Inspired by Jennifer at Random Vintage Finds a few months ago, I have also created a Slider ATC tutorial!  This is a Transformers ATC Slider I created for my Nephew Nicholas on his Birthday!  Of course I couldn't leave little brother Matthew out of it either, so at the end you will see the one I created for him too!
These are especially fun to make as a little extra something to go along with favors for any event, like a birthday :)

Step 1:  Cut a piece of cardstock that is 3 1/2" tall and 7 3/8" long.  If you would like a decorative border, I suggest cutting your cardstock at 4" tall and then using your border punch or deco scissors.

Step 2:  Score your cardstock at 2 1/2" and 5"- Perfect for pulling out that Scor-Pal to play with!

Step 3:  On the last panel, all the way to the right, cut off 1/2" from both the top and bottom of just that panel.

Step 4:  Cut an additional piece of cardstock at 2 1/4"- this will be your pop-out piece.  Decorate it as you would like...I suggest you DO NOT use heavy embellishments or 3-d elements as it will most likely not fit.  I DO suggest using stamping, embossing, distressing...as you would like.

Step 5:  Cut another piece of cardstock at 2 1/4"- this will be your pull tag.  You ca add your sentiment here.  It will need to be 1/2" from the bottom, but no more than 7/8" tall.

Step 6:  For your slider, you will need to cut a strip of grocery bag, appx. 1" wide and 8" long. 

Step 7:  Wrap the piece of plastic around the end of the card that was trimmed in Step 3 and apply a small strip of adhesive (make sure it is ONLY on the plastic).

Step 8:  Stick the other end, just tight enough where it will not slip off, but not TOO tight or else it won't slide, over where you already placed your adhesive.  Trim the excess grocery bag.

Step 9:  Line up your pop-up piece from Step 4. Place this piece so it comes just to the top of the card. Now put a small amount of adhesive on the plastic strip where the bottom your pop up will be attached to it. 

Step 10:  Line up your pull out piece from Step 5, to the bottom of the card, and towards the inside. Put a small amount of adhesive on the plastic strip, where the card that you pull will hit it.

Step 11:  To create the notch where you will pull from, use a 1" circle and notch both sides of the card (make sure you DON'T notch more than 1/2").

Step 12:  Putting it all together. Have the shorter panel folded in. You need to run a 1/8" strip of super stick tape along the VERY EDGE of the panel that has the slider plastic on it, and is over the back of the ATC.  Now close the whole thing up making sure that the shorter panel is concealed on the inside.

And that's all there is to it!  Here is the completed look-I made Optimus Prime, head of the Autobots and Megatron, head of the Decepticons.  My nephews are awesome "sharer's" lol. 

Hope you had fun creating this and
we would love to see your ATC slider creations!

Happy Scrappin'!!!!!
