I finished the gumball valentines that I designed.
I think they turned out really cute.
Hope you like them too!
Here is the tutorial and free printable,
so you can make them too!
Here is a tip for poking holes in gum balls,
so you can string them to make jewelry...
Use a small drill bit!
Drill through one side,
then drill through the other side.
The drilling can be done by hand
with just the drill bit and not using the drill.
start with a very small drill bit and gradually
enlarge the hole by stepping up
the size of the drill bit.
This will help you drill through
the gum ball without cracking it.
Hope this information helps!
Here is the valentine tutorial:
(aren't they cute!)
Get the PDF to print the bottom part of the valentine here.
You can print it on any color paper card stock that you wish.
Put gum balls in a bag, about 10 of them.
I used fold top sandwich bags for the gum balls,
but you can also use plastic wrap or other small clear baggies.
Tie the bag closed.
I tied the bag with yarn,
but any string would work.
Gather the end of the bag and tape to
the back of the printed portion of the valentine.
Trim the end of the bag,
so it looks nice and doesn't hang
past the end of the valentine.
Hope that you like them!
** (p.s. You can use any candy in place of the gumballs.
they would look really cute with M&Ms too!)**
