Check out this Swivel Slider in motion!
Let's take a peek at how it's made..

First, I'd like to say that I was working with these dies with limited instructions, and there was a bit of trial and error. The NOTES are helpful tips that I found helpful after making a bunch of these, so don't skip over them.

Step 1: Die cut the track (Jump to It). Then stamp and color the Neighborhood houses over top.


Step 2: Die cut the pull tab, sleeve, and the double circle out of heavy weight cardstock.

NOTE: Cutting a second pull tab and gluing it under your first one will give you a much sturdier pull. Even if you are using a heavy weight cardstock, doubling it up isn't a bad idea. When I double the pull tab, I cut the wings off of one of the tabs, so when it's all stacked together, the main part of the tab is doubled, but the wings are single layered. 


Step 3: Cut the tab using the arched die, and the arch die with a hole.


Step 4: Fold the circle with the notches on the scored circle line.


Step 5: Apply glue to JUST the bottom of the inner circle (not the wings) and adhere to the part of the pull tab with the arms. I suggest liquid adhesive for this. Let dry.


Step 6:  Fold the wings of the circle up and curl them so they form a cylinder.


Step 7: Slide the cylinder you just made through the hole in the other half of the pull tab. Flatten wings  (like a brad) to secure. This forms the swivel mechanism, and you should be able to freely spin the pieces. 


Step 8: Adhere the solid circle over the flattened wings to ensure they don't snag on anything. (be careful that your adhesive doesn't interfere with the swivel motion.)


Step 9: Fold the arms of the pull tab up along the scored lines (the solid circle you just glued on should be on the underside of the tab).


Step 10: Apply a strong adhesive along the inside of the arm.


Step 11: Fold arms in along score lines. the arms should meet in the middle, join together in a short vertical "stem" then the rounded ends should be spread open.


Step 12: Die cut the slider extender from heavy weigh cardstock.

NOTE: If your cardstock is not heavy enough, die cut two and layer the two together.


Step 13: Adhere the extender to the spread rounded ends of the arms from step 11. Be generous with the adhesive so the edges are firmly sealed, but don't let adhesive go past the edges.


Step 14: If you want to decorate your pull tab, do so now. By stamping a sentient on the pull tab you will end up with a hidden sentiment that is only seen when the tab is pulled.



Step 15: If you want a notch cut from the front of your card to make it easier to grab the pull tab, use the thick side of the double horse shoe die. (the other part of this die will cut a rounded tab with a score line in the middle. This fits on the end of your pull tab for a decorative finish that nests in the notch). Be sure to leave enough room between the track and the edge of the notch for our sleeve.


Step 16: Fold the sleeve on the score lines and secure with adhesive.


Step 17: Adhere the sleeve to the back of the panel with the track. The sleeve will keep your pull tab contained.


Step 18: Put your pull tab behind your track panel, and thread the slider extender through the track so the vertical "stem" of the track arms is in the track). Thread the other end of the pull tab through the sleeve. 


Step 19: Adhere your character to the slide extender using a little foam tape near the very top of the extender..




Step 20: test your mechanism to ensure easy movement. It should look something like this. If everything is working, adhere to your card base using foam tape. (be sure not to put tape in areas that will affect the movement)

NOTE: You NEED to used foam tape to adhere the all your layers. This mechanism needs space to move. If you have thin foam, you might want to double up your foam to give it the space it needs. After making these cards, Angie suggested I try 2 layers of foam tape between each layer of paper, and it made a BIG difference! 


Step 21: Stamp, color, and cut out the road and the hill. Hide the track by adhering the road and hill layers to the card front using foam tape. Be careful not to put any tape where it would block the track or inhibit the slider movement. 

Step 22: ENJOY!

Let's take a look at a few more examples...

This track is the hardest of all the track to get a smooth motion, but it makes impressive cards!


The Going Places and Landscape stamp sets pair beautifully together! (and can I just say, I love that cow!)


Going Places has both a train track and a road stamp that both follow this same curved line. 


Many of the sentiments included in the On The Move line of stamps are designed to fit in this tab, so you have lots of options when decorating your tab!

Dies: LDRS Creative Swivel Slider Tab Master, Let's Go


The Swivel Slider Tab Master does more than just swivel slides.. there are also 2 straight tracks. You use the same pull tab, but you don't cut the tab apart... just die cut it, and jump right to the part where you fold the arms. Super simple!


Mini Winnie in her little car is PERFECT for a slider!

And the Landscape stamps are great for ANY card you want to add some background scenery to! 

Ok.. I know this has been SUPER photo heavy, but I hope you are liking what you see... I'll be back tomorrow with more!
