Picture of Easy DIY Valentine Gum Dispenser

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)
12" ribbon
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.

This is a really cute idea. My friend gave me something just like this once, but it had a packet of hot cider mix inside instead of gum. She made them with hot chocolate packets for her kids' class at school too. Thanks for the idea!

I'm glad you can use it. Tell your friends.
Oh, they will notice ;) when I give it to them =)
I think I can't direct them to your Instructable, because I'm from Germany and not many of my friends like to read English except, maybe songlyrics :D
Nice idea. :)
