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
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.
Step 2: Make Basic Shape
Place the double-sided tape along the edges (see picture below). Press firmly.
Step 3: Make the Card
Use the double-sided tape or glue to stick this to one side of the larger cardboard piece we made in step 2.
Step 4: The Ribbon and Finishing
When you pull on the ribbon the gum will move up the cardboard container and out of the package. To finish this make sure there are no ugly lines or cuts, exposed tape or poorly shortened ribbon.
These take almost no time to make and add that special 'hand-made' touch to your Valentine's Day. Thanks for reading.
