Cocoa Sliders Tutorial featuring Discount Cardstock

This little holiday Cocoa Slider is so easy to create and such a nice gift idea too.  My inspiration to create this slider came from Kerry's Papercrafts Blog, she has a fabulous video tutorial right here. 

Here are the supplies you need to get started making your own Cocoa Slider with the ultra pretty embossed Holly Blizzard Lily White and Really Red cardstock from Discount Cardstock.

1- sheet of Really Red cardstock cut to 7 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches, scored at 3 5/8 and 1/2 inch
1- sheet of Holly Blizzard Lily White cardstock cut to 7 3/4 x 4 1/2 inches, scored at 3 5/8 and 1/2 inch
Enough 1/4 inch ribbon to hold Cocoa in slider and tie into bow
1- 2 inch scallop circle punched from Really Red cardstock
1 - 1 3/4 inch circle punched from Holly Blizzard Lily White cardstock
Tools: Papertrimmer, Scoreboard, Hole Punch, Adhesive Tape

Step One: Adhere Holly Blizzard Lily White cardstock to Really Read Cardstock lining up score marks.

Step Two:  Fold at score marks. Adhere 1/2 inch scored part of cardstock to inside of flap creating a pocket.

Step Three: Punch hole toward top of slider through both sides. Loop ribbon around one package of Cocoa mix (the long side) and slide down into cardstock slider (the loop at the bottom will hold the Cocoa in the slider. (The photo below shows how the loop will hold the Cocoa in.)

Optional Step:  Remove curious cat's claws from ribbon and place cat gently on floor. Continue working.

Step Four: Stamp Sentiment (I used Papertrey Ink's 2008 Holiday Tag stamp set) on Holly Blizzard Lily White circle punch and adhere to Really Red cardstock 2 inch scallop punch.  Adhere to front of slider.

Step Five: Pull Cocoa package up tight into slider with ribbon. Tie ribbon in bow. Gift as a super cute and easy holiday gift!
