Tutorial- Semi Circle penny slider baby boy card

hi girls!,

I know the title is soo long.. tried to shorten it.. but could nt.Following the baby girl card in thispost, my hubby wanted something similar for his collegue but for boy.. I had this semicircle slider in my mind and thought lets try it out.. after a few scraps that went to garbage, I finally succeeded in making one.

Do you remember the scallop circle pram , I made sometime back? If not you can check here.I drew a baby face on scrap cardstock and affixed behind it..Stickers are from Itsy Bitsy.PP from paper mania.. I felt the card was empty and added some dots(so many?) with markers..

Today's Tip

Today lets see how to make the semi circle mechanism. Draw 2 semi circles with same center,one 0.5 cm radius bigger than the other.Cut a piece of card stock slightly bigger than the outer semi circle.

Place a round double sided foam tape between 2 Re.1 coins.stick them together. Fix the card strip with a brad to the center of the two semi circles.

Slide the coins inbetween the semi circles.Glue the card strip over the coins. Run through the semi circles back and forth and confirm that it moves freely around.The moving part on ur card should be glued over the card strip.

You can use your ideas to cover it, the way you like!A simple idea would be flower and butterfly.If you make any cards using this technique, share it with me.. I ll be happy to see it!! Hope the tutorial was useful!
