Gum Slider

This is a fun gift for a friend when you aren't sure how to say Happy Birthday.  You can add this to a gift and let it act as the tag, or just give a little treat to someone special.  This is called a gum slider.  It gets it name because you slide out the gum from inside using the ribbon.  I first made some of these for Christmas in a Santa design (I'll show them later)  But this one was for December stamp club.  

You make a wrap for the gum which you attach around the outside of the gum.  Then you punch a hole in the top and string your ribbon through the hole you punched and tie it.  To insert the gum, you push down the ribbon inside the holder you have made and that is how you are able to pull the gum out of the middle.   

This sample uses the BEST of BIRTHDAY's set.  These are only available until April 30, 2014.  If you purchase 6 sets of the "BEST OF" sets, you get to choose a FREE one from the Idea Book and Catalog.
