Introduction: LEGO Candy Machine

I have made two candy machines using online tutorials and I loved them...so I decided to make my own. YAY! This candy machine/dispenser dispenses smarties on the push of a button. I'm also sorry that I couldn't give a full tutorial on making it. :(

Step 1: Find a Pen Spring

You'll need the pen spring in order for the button to work I used a spring from a pen that ran out of ink. Make sure that it fits inside the lego brick.

Step 2: The Button

The button is really basic. This I'll tell you how to make. You need:
1x2 brick
1x3 brick
1x4 plate
1x4 tile
1x1 plate
1x1 tile
6x 1x1 bricks
Remember that the spring god inside the brick!

Step 3: The Base

The base could be done in many ways I have just gotten some different plates and put tiles where they should be... Fair enough.

Step 4: Building Up

As you can see I have placed bricks around so The button wont fly out, trust me... It happens I have also left a 4x4 hole in the machine which is where you put the smarties (it holds 9-10).

Step 5: The Removable Lid

The lid is there so the smarties don't go everywhere it connects to a 1x4 plate and a 1x2 plate.

I only have one problem... It needs just a few tweaks to the instructions so I have more info to make it I barely know how to make it. No offence

You should make the whole top hollow so it holds like 40 smarties!
