"Pull Out Gum Holder"


I was looking around the house the other day trying to find something to alter when my daughter grabbed some gum. I snatched it out of her hand and thought..."This is perfect!" I took the container apart and measured it so I would have a template. I put it together and slid the gum in just to make sure it was the right size and the gum fell out the bottom. I know my measurements were correct but I think my box was just a slight bit bigger. So I made another one and added a bottom so it was a box with one end open. Just like the wrapped hershey bar.

Stamps: Happy Hearts, Party Punch
Paper: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Whisper White
Ink: Regal Rose, Rose Red
Accessories: Scor-Pal, Eclipse Gum, Crimper, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Round Tab Punch

Here are the directions on how to make the gum holder.
