Jaded Blossom Candy Slider

Hi Everybody!
It's happily my turn to share another Jaded Blossom project with you!  I made this candy slider card for a birthday treat, but it would work awsome for any occassion.  Here's how it turned out:

You'll need:

*Jaded Blossom = Miscellaneous Fun. and Flag Dies
*Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge
*sea green cardstock
*Echo Park patterned paper
*Stampin' Up! solid cardstock
 *ribbon






*Before scoring, lay your candy down to see where you will need to fold it.

*You will need to leave about 1/8" on both sides of the candy to allow it to be able to slide in and out.

*Before you adhere it closed, add your mat on the front, and do any stamping and embellishing at this point.  It's much easier to do it while it's completely flat!




*For mine, I added the cupcake, banner and bling.
  
*I took my flag die cuts using the Flag Dies, and folded them 2 times on each side so that the flag popped up in the middle.




 

*I also stamped above and below the patterned paper mat.




*Once you're ready to close it, remember to allow a little bit of overlap to make it easier to adhere.




*Punch a hole at the top, and thread your ribbon through both sides.




*Put your candy on top of the ribbon, and push the candy down into the slider.

*Tie your ribbon closed at the top.





*Adhere the solid cardstock piece to the back, and embellish.  This is where you can write a message :)



*Here's the final project!





*Here's how it looks sliding out.



This was super simple to make!  And it would be great for all ages.  I hope you liked it! I'd love to see some of you make this and share it on the Jaded Blossom Facebook page HERE, or on my Facebook page HERE
