Sliding window card
Materials:
Cardstock in three colors
Craft knife
Ruler
Pencil
Scor-it board (or other scoring tool)
Tape
Scissors
Hole punch
Ribbon


Steps:

Cut each piece of cardstock as follows:
Main card 5 ½” x 8 ½” (Olive)
Window card 3 ½” c 3” (Cream)
Slider 4 ½” x 4” (Maroon)

Follow the illustration to score and crease the three components of the card.
Use a craft knife to cut two lines in the main card as shown and one line in the slider as shown.
Use scissors to trim the four corners of the window card as shown.
Insert the window card into the two parallel cuts in the main card as show. Tape down the window card tabs so they are entirely inside the two cuts on the main card.
Insert the slider as shown. Tape the slider closed. Glue the tab on the main card as shown and close the card tightly to secure.
Pull the slider out from the right side of the card and punch a hole in the end. Tie ribbon through the hole. Push the slider back inside the card. Use the ribbon to pull the slider out.
Decorate the card any way you wish. Enjoy!
