BASC Spring '12: Slides

These are not playground slides but pop-up slides! Pop-up slides are images that move up and down or side to side on a strip of paper that is woven through another paper (inserted between slits in the paper to be exact). Images can be of anything. It's fun to use images that some how alter the scene on the page. For example, the slide could be a hat that moves on and off a person's head. Another idea for a slide is a dog that looks like it is going for a walk as the slide moves back and forth. It is important to use heavy weight paper like card stock so the slide works smoothly. Tabs at the end of the slide that say "push" or "pull" in a different color from the slide are a nice detail to add.
