Fries Over Guys!

 Happy Friday friends! I've been trying to get back to eating low carb and cutting out sugar because that's what works for me and my body when it comes to getting healthier and losing weight. Lately though, I've been having a mad craving for fries! When Jaded Blossom came out with the new Sentiment Strip Dies, the first thing I saw when I cut a strip from yellow cardstock was....FRIES, hahaha! So I decided to try and create a Fries Gift Card Slider using products from the Jaded Blossom Store. I even included a tutorial for you!



Step 1: I used the Coffee Slider Die to create the stack of fries and the fry carton. Use the sleeve die to cut two pieces from red cardstock and glue together to form the sleeve. Use the coffee cup insert die and cut the coffee cup insert from yellow cardstock.

Step 2: Slide the yellow cup into the red sleeve and draw a line at the bottom of the yellow cup so you know where to trim it off. Trim off the bottom of the cup and the little tabs on the sides at the top of the cup (I already trimmed them off before taking pictures).


Step 3: Using the largest Sentiment Strip Die, cut several strips from yellow cardstock. I cut around 25 strips. You might not use them all. I think my project used about 22 strips.

Step 4: Glue the strips to the yellow cup base. I I staggered my first layer of fries when covering the cup base so I did have to trim off overhang from the bottom. Next, I cut some of the strips shorter and angled them so the fries were laying at different angles.

Step 5: Attach your gift card to the back of the cup base with double stick tape or rubber cement. I did not seal the bottom of the red slider, but if you are worried about the gift card falling through, you can always add some glue to the bottom of the red slider.

Step 6: I cut a yellow label using Label Shape Dies 1. The sentiment is from Galentine's Day Stamp Set. And.....voila.....your Fries Gift Card Slider is complete!

Remember, Jaded Blossom has a current ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE. You have until April 30th to play along for a chance to win a free stamp set!
