A Gumball Machine Card That DIspenses Candy!

Hello!

I knew as soon as I saw this card that I had to make one! I love cards that are different folds or pop-ups or functional in some way - it is great fun for me to see if I can follow the tutorials to make them work! :<) This gumball machine card that dispenses candy was just such a challenge!

You can find a great video tutorial and the template for this wonderful and unique card at Amber's very creative blog "Staying Crafty" at http://stayingcrafty.blogspot.com/ Her quiet voice and patient manner on the video keeps you focused - and considerably less anxious - when first attempting this project's mechanism that allows the candy to drop down from the globe! :<) It is well worth the time and effort spent to make this card and I am definitely making more of them! :<)

Thank you Amber for this great project!


Turn the little dial . . . .

and you have candy! It works! :<) I love it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

After a very busy and chaotic yesterday and being gone most of the day, I hope to have a quiet day today and just rest and create. Wishing you a good one also! :<)

I LOVE your version! The stars are darling, and the scalloped frame on the inside is a great touch, I never would have thought of that!

Thank you so much for your kind words today, they mean a lot to me :)
