The following tutorial will show you how to make a fun gum slider. You'll need:
- package of gum (the type with the foil slider of gum - I used Eclipse)
- double-sided cardstock
- scoring tools
- Terrifically Tacky Tape
- Rubber Romance images (I used Cutie Pie Bird & You're Tweet sentiment)
First measure your gum package to determine how much cardstock is needed for the cover. With the Eclipse, the package was 4" x 2.5".
Add Terrifically Tacky Tape to one of the edges. I always use my bone folder to press the tape and make a secure bond. Do not adhere it to the other end yet.
Decorate the front of the gum slider. you can see that I added some paper piecing and a fun googily eye. Then remove the paper of the Terrifically Tacky Tape and adhere the two ends. Slide in your gum and Voila!!
Happy New Year and here's to keeping up with our resolutions!!
