Pure of Heart!!

Good Morning all!!! Yes it is Monday and I am not at work lol I have to go to the dentist today so took a vacation day. Hopefully this will be my last visit for awhile lol

I saw this idea on a blog awhile back (forgot who sorry) but it is a gum holder. My granddaughter is always loving it when I make her things so since she loves to chew gum so much I thought I would make this for her. I have used the Pure of Heart from Sugar Nellie in the Diane Duda collection. I colored her with my copic's and have used some older papers from MME. I just added some little flowers from a SU punch and added little flat pearls to the inside. This was really easy to make. Below I will tell you how I done it if you would like to try it out. Sugar Nellie has a large selection of Diane's stamps on sale so go grab them before the sale is off. These images are so cute and so easy to color. Great time to get them while they are on sale.
Here is a pic of the inside of the holder.

I took a piece of card stock 2 1/2 by 12.
Scored it at 2, 2 3/4, 7, 7 1/2.
I took the oval punch from SU and punched the holder for the gum on the end of the 7 1/2 scored end, I left about a 1/2 inch from the end and punched there.
I also scored in the middle of the oval so it would lay flat.
I used some score tape and taped it shut at the 2 3/4 fold. and used a magnet to hold it together and then decorated the front of the holder.
This holder was made for the Trident layers gum but I am sure you can get the idea to make your own measurements for the package of gum you choose.

Hope I explained that well enough if not and you have any questions please feel free to email me.

Well need to head out. Hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping bye. Sending Big Hugs (((((((((())))))))))))
