Here are the cards that I made for my granddaughters for Halloween.
These sweet girls just melt my heart.
After drawing up a sketch, I made the cards for the twins.
Last year these treat cups were used for their birthday cards, too.
But there was no way to get to the candy without destroying the cards. So this time I made sliders to access the candy. I used this great tutorial for them. Thank you, Cindy!
I took some pictures along my journey making these sliders, as well.
The card fronts were made according to the sketch. Using one of the Circles Nestabilities, circles were cut in the card fronts. The card fronts were then used as templates to mark the position of where to cut the circle in their backing.
The backings were trimmed leaving a wider border on the side where the slider tabs would be.
I made sure that the sliders were large enough to cover the holes when fully closed.
When the tape was placed on the backings, I was careful to leave enough room for the sliders to function properly without coming in contact with any adhesive.
Before adhering the backings in place, the cups were put into the card fronts.
The backings were then adhered to the card fronts.
Card bases with a 1″ front were made and adhered to the card fronts. The candy was placed in the treat cups and the sliders were put into place.
The sentiment panels were bent to form a wave. A small foam tape square was placed on the center back, and regular adhesive was placed on each side. (The foam tape will keep the “bump” in the sentiment panels once they have been adhered to the card fronts.)
And here is little Kate’s card.
The spider was colored with Copics.
It took no time at all, but gave a little touch of fun to stamp a quick spiderweb to the inside of the card.
Here is my little ladybug Kate all ready to go trick or treating.
Hope everyone has a safe and..
