Pop Up Slider Pocket

I know it seems as though I have been in Birthday mode lately, and maybe you are right! There is just something so fun and cheery about the prospect of wishing someone a Happy Birthday! I can't help myself! Today's card is a little different, I accidentally created this slider pocket while attempting something else completely. I haven't seen this technique before....but that doesn't mean someone out there has not already done it!  :)

 To create the slider I cut a scalloped rectangle at 6 1/4" and scored a 1/4" {or a full scallop} 1 1/2 inches from the ends. Fold and adhere to card using foam tape to pop up the sides. A 2" tag will slide smoothly.

 I started using the mojo Monday sketch...but git a wee bit off track LOL . That's the way it goes sometimes, the paper takes a different turn and you just follow where it leads! ......Of course if paper is controlling your life, you may need to seek professional help, I speak from experience you see. *giggle*
 This adorable alligator was cut with the Cricut expression using the super fun birthday bash cartridge, and paired with the Animal crackers collection from Imaginsce.
This is the top view of the slider pocket, hope that helps make sense of how its made. Give it a try, it was easy...after all it was an accident, how hard could it be right?   As always happy creating!
