"Gum Holder"


These are the gum holders that I made for the goodie bag. I will post the entire set tomorrow. These are so fun to make. Super easy and real cute. They are for the trident 5 piece packs of gum. I found a multi pack of 8 for I want to say $1.99 at Target. We made these at my stamp camp and I fell in love with them. I think I am going to make these with all my gift sets from now on. I was going back and forth on whether or not to get the SU scallop punch. Seeing how I have the Marvy ones. I didn't really think I needed it. Well, my demo has it and we used it for a few projects and I had to get it. It is so cute. I know I will use it a lot. The pumpkin stamp I used is from tag time. (retired)It fit perfect for the theme. I also added stickles on it so it would have some shimmer. Here are the directions for the gum holder.

Stamp: Tag Time
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: SU Scallop Punch, SU Circle Punch, SU Markers, Stickles, Trident Gum, Velcro Dots

Rochelle- Absolutely love the gum holder! (I don't have the word window punch, so I've got to figure something else out to make these!) You did a great job!

Great gift!

I'm just wondering how did you make the "word window" for holding the pack of gum? Is it a special punch?

yes, it is a punch. It is a stampin' up punch.

Rochelle, this is so cute but I can't figure out how you used the WW punch for the long side? Mine won't reach that part and if I fold over the bottom end then both pieces get punched? I feel so dumb - please help! Thanks! Kim

Kim, What I meant about the long side was the longer side from the score lines. I don't know if that made sense. If not, e-mail me and I will send you a picture of what I am talking about.
