Introduction: Gumball Machine Valentines (with Free Printable)

About: You can learn more about me on my blog: http://livingwiththreemoonbabies.blogspot.com

Here are the gumball valentines that I designed. I think they turned out really cute. Hope you like them! Here is the tutorial and free printable, so you can make them too!

Step 1:

Get the PDF to print the bottom part of the valentine here.
You can print it on any color paper card stock that you wish.

Step 2:

Put gum balls in a bag, about 10 of them.
I used fold top sandwich bags for the gum balls,
but you can also use plastic wrap or other small clear baggies.

Step 3:

Tie the bag closed.
I tied the bag with yarn,
but any string would work.

Step 4:

Gather the end of the bag and tape to
the back of the printed portion of the valentine.

Step 5:

Trim the end of the bag,
so it looks nice and doesn't hang
past the end of the valentine.

Step 6:

Turn over...
Finished!

Step 7:

Hope that you like them!
** (p.s. You can use any candy in place of the gumballs.
they would look really cute with M&Ms too!)**
