Aviary Sweet Treat Double Slider

4th Project: I love sliders and saw this treat slider idea on Mary Jo Albright's site (2/4/09) and again on Allison's site ( posted 6/14/10) - so it was destiny, I had to try it..................finished project size is 3-1/4" x 1/2" x 3-1/2" and when all the tabs are pulled out the project is 3-1/4" x 1/2" x 9-3/4". No DSP with these colors.........stamped my own.

Pull down on the bottom tab.............if you pull the top tab, the popcorn is surprise will fall out.....(so that's why Allison made the pull tab on the side........dah me!).......but we all had so much fun picking up our popcorn!!!!

Top pullout with sweet treat cup:

Bottom pullout with message:


Measurements and Templates:
6" x 3-1/2", score @3" along the 6" side: this is the top slider
2-3/4" x 3" : this is the stamped background piece
3-1/2" x 11", Score along the 11" side @ 3", 3-1/2", 6-3/4", 7-1/4" 10-1/2": this is the card base
2-1/4" x 2-3/4": this is the pull up tab
3" x 3-1/4" :there will be one in So Saffron and one in Old Olive

This is what is needed to make this:
(1) 3" x 3-1/4" So Saffron CS for the front
(1) 3" x 3-1/4" Old Olive for the Bottom Slider
(1) 6" x 3-1/2" for the Top Slider
(3) 2-3/4" x 3" Very Vanilla CS for the "background"
(1) 2-1/4" x 2-3/4" in Old Olive CS for the pull out tab
(2) Punched Round Tabs in So Saffron
(1) 1" x 7" Clear plastic strip (not in photo) - this will be the "slider"
Scrap Very Vanilla (not in Photo)
2-1/2" long cut 1/4" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon (not in photo
Separately stamp the Birdcage using Chocolate Chip ink on scrap Very Vanilla, stamp the owl in Certainly Celery, cut out and pop with dimensionals on the back.Randomly stamp Very Vanilla CS with the image from the Circle Circus stamp using Sahara Sand ink. Adhere the cut out cage with owl. Apply to the middle section of the Old Olive with adhesive.

Here comes the fun part: adhere stamped Very Vanilla CS to the 6" x 3-1/2" Old Olive. Slide the 1-3/4" punch all the way in for the sweet treat cup. Punch through both layers.

On the other side of the 6" x 3-1/2" Old Olive piece, slide the 1" Circle Punch all the way in and punch out. This is where all the Popcorn will fall out!
Stamp the birds and message using Chocolate Chip ink:

Optional step: apply a thin coating of Tombow (too much glue will ooze out careful). I forgot to add adhesive to my 2nd card, and it was fine since it was sandwiched between layers of CS.

Fold one of the So Saffron tabs in half and apply to the 2-1/4" x 2-3/4" Old Olive piece (note: the 2-1/4" is considered the "top"). Fill treat cup cavity with Popcorn. Apply sticky tape to edge and bottom as shown.

For the bottom section, (I am ANAL!!!!) Fold the 2nd So Saffron Round Tab in half. Use a pencil to lightly mark the bottom of the tab (see arrow):
Cut off the bottom part of the round tab so afterwards, the tab will MATCH the top section. (Skip this section if it doesn't matter to you). See arrow..............
On the last section (it's the one without the 1/2" lip), use the 1-1/4" punch, sliding about 1/4" into the edge. Note: this section is not the same width as the other twp sections so align the punch accordingly but punch the top and bottom to match.

Use the 1" x 7" clear plastic strip to wrap around the punched section loosely. Apply stick tape only on the clear plastic to connect - see arrow. Trim off any excess clear plastic at the top and underside that would be in the way of sliding. Position the connection to the bottom, apply another piece of Sticky tape. Remove backing, position the sweet treat cup section on top and press to secure.
Fold up this completed section, apply sticky tape to the top of the clear strip. Remove backing and place the bottom section FACE DOWN as shown - see arrow. Then adhere - be sure to match up to the sweet treat section before pressing down.

Last step: Single knot a small piece of Chocolate Chip grosgrain, attach to top of birdcage with a mini glue dot. Then remove the sticky tape from the 1/2" section, fold in, and secure onto the clear plastic section. See arrow.
Whew..............that's was a mouth full for this project!
