Valentine Gumball Machine

A while back I bought the mini version of the red plastic cups and knew that they would come in handy. Then one day I saw a version of this on Pinterest and I just had to make my own for Valentine's day.

I had some leftover mini plastic bulbs from last Christmas, which worked perfect so I filled it with some heart candies. Then using the Jaded Blossom Gumball stamp I stamped and cut out what would be the metal part of the machine.  

For the top I stamped and cut out a sentiment from the Jaded Blossom Valentine Candies set and it fit perfectly.

What a fun and easy favor to make for any occasion.

Will You Be Mine??????

Now that all my fun little Valentine's Day treats have been found I thought I would share them with you and enter them into the Jaded Blossom Valentine Treats February Challenge.

I started by cutting out a bunch of toppers with the Jaded Blossom Scallop Slider and Topper and Die then matched them with some patterned paper from Recollections.

For the first one I used this super cute Love Frog from Miss Kate Cuttables and gave him some googly eyes. The sentiment in my love frog's hands is from PBD Be Mine. I also used Jaded Blossom Valentines CandiesRoyal Candies and the lips are from one of my Peachy Keen face assortment stamps.

For the second one I cut out the Whale with Waves from Silhouette. I cut out a small piece for a mouth, gave him some googly eyes and added some Stickles in True Blue for his water squirt. The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom Under The Sea stamp set and for the nuggets I used the Sea Life Candies.

For the last one I used the Nerdy Owl file from Miss Kate Cuttables. The sentiment is from Pink By Design's Be Mine stamp set. I also added some Google eyes and inked with some Tim Holtz Distress ink.

I think that they turned out super cute and can't wait to make treats for the next upcoming holiday.
