Ribbon Slide Card

Lis asked for the directions to make ribbon slide cards for her wedding favors so I figured posting here would be the easiest way to show her and anyone else who may be interested. The idea here is that when the ribbon is pulled the insert slides up and reveals the contents which could be a simple greeting, cocoa packet, seed packet, lottery tickets, gift card, etc.

Step 1: Start with a half sheet (5 1/2" x 8 1/2") of cardstock and score it 2 1/4" from each end.
Step 2: Fold on scored lines and adhere overlap.

Step 3: Cut a cardstock insert 3 7/8" x 5 1/2"
Step 4: Slide the insert into the folded card and punch a hole at the center top through all layers.
Step 5: Slide the insert out and flip it end for end so that the punched hole is at the bottom.

Step 6: Slde the insert back in just far enough so that the holes line up and thread a length of ribbon ( approx. 15") through the holes then bring the ends up and knot them at the top of the insert.

When the insert is pushed in the ribbon will go in with it. When the ribbon is pulled the insert will slide out and reveal the contents of the card.

Decorate the card front as desired.
