This week Stampin' Celebration has a very cool group of inspirational photos that have a halloween theme so I thought it would fun to play along, plus I wanted to finally get the instructions posted of how to make the gum holders shown HERE.
They are so easy to make a would be a great halloween treat for teachers or friends.I don't know about you but I would rather have kids chewing sugar-free gum then eating more chocolate or candy :) Although speaking from experiance; you may NOT want to give a pack of gum to a three year old! You can get 6 holders from one sheet of 12x12 paper. As I had mentioned in my earlier post I got the idea for these from a challenge that was on the demo side of Splitcoast Stampers last year.
Score a 4x 6" paper at 1", 1 1/4", 3 3/4", and 4" along the 6" side. Create a notch in the center by punching half of a circle using the 1" Circle Punch. Apply a line of Sticky Strip to the 1" side.
These measurements work perfectly with trident gum, you may want to measure your gum first if using a different kind.
I randomly stamped the bats from Wicked Cool Set all over Pumpkin Pie Cardstock using Basic Gray Ink. For the main image I stamped the web and words on 1 3/4 x 1 3/4" piece of Whisper White and matted on to a 2" Old Olive square. I then used Rich razzleberry 1/4" Ribbon to tie around the front and attached the image with Dimensionals. I just love my punches and the new Bat Punch is no exception-who would of thought bats could be cute?! I quickly punch one out of Textured Basic Black card stock and stuck it on with a Mini Glue Dot.
*I removed my gum from the package and place it in the center of the card stock then wrapped the paper around it and attached the ends together with the gum inside. I did this to ensure a nice tight fit around the gum.
Have a great day,
Be sure to check back tomorrow for Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Challenge! We are having an amazing time this week working with Bells & Boughs, Belle Wheel, Christmas Collage or Vintage Frames Decor Stencil. I choose Bells and Boughs so you don't want to miss my take on vintage :)
