Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Sugar & Spice

Happy Tuesday! I am so excited to show you the project I made for this challenge! I love, love, love it!




That's right - is a gum holder! LOL I use Extra bubble gum in the 15 stick pack.

I made the box on my Gypsy with Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and George and Basic Shapes - you can download the file here. Just a warning - I couldn't figure out how to make the "tick" marks to indicate where you fold so I had to use a box image and hide all the contours except the tick marks. So...it looks VERY UGLY but if you click on preview (the eye) you can see that it will cut just fine. LOL

Here is a picture (rough though it may be) so you can see how it gets folded. If you have any questions let me know. :)


The box is 10" x 6" so it will use most of a 12" x 12" paper. I recommend you use sturdy cardstock to help with the weight. I glued the twine on the inside of the box when I was putting it together so it comes out of the sides but doesn't show on the back of the box.

The little girls face is from Sugar & Spice (I just cut her head, not her body) and the "popping" bubble is a old punch from Emagination. I used PKS Happy Lashes for her face. I only stamped the eyes and nose - you can't really see the nose, but it's there. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps - Kids Incorporated set.

Thank you so much for taking a peek - I hope you can join us for the Terrific Tuesday Challenge! :)

Do you still have the file available for download? The link above is not working. I love this little gum holder. You are very talented.

I would love the file. I wasn't able to download it. Would this work on a silhouette or could I convert it? Love this. So cute.
