This instructable is for a simple Valentine's Day gum dispenser. When you pull the ribbon the gum will pop out. These could be mass-manufactured for an entire classroom or you can make just one for that special person in your life.
The little babies can be smashed out in no time, look great and are guaranteed** to get that lucky lady in your life to notice you.
Once you understand the basics these can be made with little cost and little time.
** Note: There is no guarantee.
Step 1: The Materials
The materials you will need will depend on how many you want to make. Each one requires:
3" x 7" piece of cardboard (preferably decorated)
2.5" x 2.5" card for the front (you can make this or buy one, I'll describe the former)
Double-sided tape or glue
Holepunch (anything that will make a hole in cardboard will do)
You can make three of the cardboard pieces from one standard (8.5" x 11") piece of cardstock.
