My friend Kathy Mauldin used one of my designs (gumball machine or a printable version) on some of her Valentine’s Day cards. They turned out so cute, so I wanted to do a “how-to” for my blog. I design for Silhouette, but I’m surely not the best with the glue, etc. I am getting better – my hands aren’t young anymore – harder to do this. Below I’ll show you Kathy’s – and then will leave directions to make the candy cards yourself. Be sure to click on photos to see a larger version.
How to make it
I’m just going to do a basic one. You can decorate them with printed pictures, cut outs, ribbons, rhinestones – whatever you have on hand.
cardstock (or paper of choice)
1 16.9 oz. empty, washed water bottle
Place a small piece of strong, double-sided tape on each tab. You can also use a strong one-sided piece of tape. I don’t think it makes a difference. Attach (glue stick, whatever glue you use) the two pieces (with holes) together.
I used a two piece butterfly that I had purchased at the Silhouette Design Store. I used cardstock, corrugated cardboard and glitter cardstock. I can’t find it to give the exact artist who created it. If I find it, I’ll post it. I also added a small bow made of cording. Yum! Fun tag!
