How to make a slider mechanism

You will need :-
DL base card
a sheet from an old atlas
assorted pieces of card
large brad
foam tape and glue

1. Cut out the pieces of card as shown in the picture below

You need to cut a slot in the large panel in the centre, 1" from each end and 1/4" wide. 

2. Cover the large panel and longest thin strip in your map paper

3. Cover the base card as required.

4. Mount a piece of card about 1cm larger than your slider panel flat, in the center of the base card.

5. Score the smallest piece of card at 1/2", 7/8",11/2" and  2" 

6. Fold this piece around the long slider as so and glue, leaving the flaps sticking up.

7. Slot the 2 tabs through the slot on the central panel and secure with a small piece of card.

8. Stick two rows of mounting foam ( or as much as it needs) along the outside edge of the underside of the mechanism then mount on base card.
9. Attach a large brad to the end of the strip and add your greeting.
10. Stick your image on the top of your mechanism.
