Label Me Punch - Ribbon Slider Tutorial

dn Tech LabelSlider Tropical f2 Mar20 2


Punches are one of my go-to crafting tools. They make adding a greeting or accent quick and simple. It's even better when you have a couple punches that are designed to layer and coordinate like the Label Me Fancy (#151297) and Label Me Lovely (#151296) Punches from the Spring Mini.

Each punch is great on it's own and the Label Me Fancy Punch does triple-duty since it also has hole and slit punches. Combined they make creating tags, labels, and accents a cinch. I'm excited to share a not-so-obvious use for these punches.

In this tutorial you'll learn how to create a ribbon slide! This card also features the gorgeous Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper (#151252) and coordinating Timeless Tropical stamp and die bundle (#153811).

I think together they'll make a fabulous stamper-style tropical punch!

dn Tech LabelSlider Tropical s1 Mar201. Cut & Stamp

Cut Thick Whisper White cardstock to 4-1/4" x 11". Score at 5-1/2" along the 11" side. Stamp the small flower image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set several times at the top left and bottom right of the card with Daffodil Delight ink.

dn Tech LabelSlider Tropical s2 Mar202. Die Cut Leaves

Die-cut scrap Old Olive cardstock with the two small solid leaf images from the In The Tropics dies. These dies cut and emboss. Cut 3 leaves total. Sponge the top and edges of leaves with Old Olive ink to enhance the embossing.

dn Tech LabelSlider Tropical s3 Mar203. Stamp & Punch

Stamp greeting from the Timeless Tropics stamp set on So Saffron cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Punch out greeting with the Label Me Fancy Punch. Sponge edges with Daffodil Delight ink.

dn Tech LabelSlider Tropical s4 Mar204. Create a Ribbon Slider

Cut Real Red cardstock to 2-1/2" x 3". Hold the Label Me Fancy punch upside down so you see the punching area. Hold cardstock in portrait position. Slide into the right edge of the punch until it is just even with the punch edge. Make sure the bottom edge of the paper is all the way down into the punch. Punch slit from the cardstock.

dn Tech LabelSlider Tropical s5 Mar205. Ribbon Slider Second Step

Remove cardstock and flip (not rotate) it over so the same bottom edge stays down. Place opposite edge back into the punch from the right side just like the first time. Mack sure bottom edge is all the way into the punch. Punch another slit. Remove cardstock, the slits should be opposite each other and level with each other.

dn Tech LabelSlider Tropical s6 Mar206. Ribbon Slider Third Step

Hold the Label Me Lovely Punch upside down so you see the punch area. Slide the cardstock with the slits into the punch with the same bottom edge all the way down into the punch. Use the putty tip of the Take Your Pick Tool to manoeuvre the cardstock until the slits are centred evenly in the punch and then punch it out.

dn Tech LabelSlider Tropical s7 Mar207. Ribbon Slider Last Step

Cut a 7" piece of Crushed Curry 3/8" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. Thread the ribbon down through one punched slit and up through the other. The side with little ribbon showing will be the front of the ribbon slider.

dn Tech LabelSlider Tropical s8 Mar208. Layer & Add Ribbon

Adhere a 3" x 5-1/2" piece of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a 3-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Real Red Cardstock. Add adhesive to the back of the cardstock at the top and bottom and use it to hold the ribbon ends behind. Adhere the layers to the card about 1/8" from the left edge.

dn Tech LabelSlider Tropical s9 Mar209. Embellish

Add the stamped and punched greeting to the ribbon slider with Stampin' Dimensionals. Use Glue Dots to adhere the die cut leaves under the bottom left and top right edges of the greeting. The ribbon slider card is now ready to send along a happy aloha!
