Graduation Slider Gift Box with Hidden Card

This is a cute and simple project but it is oh so fun to giveaway. Put candy in the box and make them think that is all they are getting, and when they slide the box out to see, presto you have a card slide out the other end.

So easy and fun for graduation gifts.

The tutorial is uploading now and here are the written measurements and links to supplies I used.

Cardstock 8x8 inches
Use your envelope punch board and punch and score at these measurements
2 5/8" punch & score, turn
3 3/8" punch & score, turn
2 5/8" punch & score, turn
3 3/8" punch & score, turn

Then go back to the score lines that are beside the punch outs and place the little point of the envelope punch board on that score line, punching again and scoring. This score line should come out right in the middle of the side punch you made prior. Do this all the way around. 

Now you need to cut some tabs, take the two larger points and cut the score line to the side of the large points just up to the first score line, this creates 4 tabs to glue the box together. 

Now we need to do a little more folding. Take one of the tabs and fold it over at the first score line, then fold it over again, causing the end of the tab to score along with the second score line. These parts will glue down to the inside of the box creating stronger sides. 

Bottom of the box cut at 4 1/8"x3 1/8" - this piece will go in the bottom of the box when you have glued all the sides down to the inside. Just as another extra support. 

Slider card holder- cut at 4 1/4"x7 1/8" score on the long side at 3/4, 7/8, 4 1/8 and 4 1/4. Fold and burnish well. 

Slots for the plastic slider. On the bottom of the piece you just created come in 1/4" from the last score line and make a small mark, do this on both sides and on both ends. Then take you ruler and join these 1/8" from edge of paper. You are cutting out a 1/8" slot. 

Plastic slider: I used a sandwich bag, it is better to use a larger plastic bag that does not have any side edges on it. The smother the better.  Cut this piece 2 3/4"x8 3/4" fold around keeping it in the slots and glue the ends together. Be careful not to get glue on the box, just glue the plastic together so it will slide around. I used score tape. 

The Hidden card piece: cut at 4 1/8"x3 1/8" - put glue just on one of the short end of this piece, not all over. If you have a side that you want up when you slide it out make sure to put the adhesive on that side. You will then place it on the plastic inside the flaps and center and glue. Then glue the flaps together trapping the card inside. 


Take the box you made and put adhesive just on one end, on the other end put a piece of ribbon in the center for a pull tab, gluing it to the bottom of the box. Make sure to just glue the box to the  plastic only. Glue  the box on the opposite end as you did the slider card. You want them to slide out on opposite ends. Press it down in the center. 

Wrap Around: Cardstock 4 1/4"x10 1/2" score on the long side at 2, 3 5/8, 6 7/8, 8 1/2.  Wrap this piece around the box and slider piece and glue to the bottom of slider piece only. 

Now you are ready to decorate:

Mats are cut at 3x4 inches and 3 3/4x2 3/4 inches. 

Cap is cut at 2x2
