Bubble Gum Bubble Gum in a Purse ????

Happy Saturday ;o) Hope everyone is finding time to do some of the things that they actually enjoy doing. I cannot complain. I worked in the yard, did a few things around the house, spent time with my son, watched a movie and still found time to make this very fun little project. I didn't create it for any particular reason or for any particular reason. Is it not super fun though? So many elements that I just adore. Can you guess what they are?

Polka Dots, Ribbon, Gum Balls, Gum Ball Machine and a fun little container. These are just a few of my favorite things!! The entire project was centered around this Lockhart Gumball Machine. First I colored it then added Diamond Glaze over the part that would be glass, as well as, the little gumballs scattered around the base. Not sure if you can really see that in the photos? I then mounted it to a little metal tag frame, squeezed a little glue around the edges then sprinkled on some super fine glitter. I painted a Popsicle stick with white acrylic paint then glued that to the back of the Gumball Machine, thus creating a little stake.

I used a cutting die from Stampin' Up! to create the purse and the little sentiment tag. In order to make the purse more durable, I die cut the purse twice. First using a plain thick cardstock and then again using a Designer Paper. I simply glued them together making sure to match up all of the edges. I used 2 different circle punches to create the polka dots/gumballs around the bottom.

The sentiment "You are the one" is also Lockhart. I was just over at Susana's Custom Art and Card Designs and noticed that she is offering a small gift with purchase and there is also a special on Smooch. Buy 7 get the 8th one FREE!!! O but wait, that's not All - SMIRK STAMPS are 50% off.
