Catch step-by-step instructions below. Click photos to enlarge:
- Cut pieces as shown. Have fun with colors for the gumballs.
- Attach 3 inner layers into the slots of the vignette side pieces. Make sure to pull down so they all are the same level. Cut tabs off the 2 remaining layers; these will be used for the front and back. Adhere to the folded tabs of the Vignette side pieces.
- For the bottom, run stabilizer bar through slit at bottom of the layers. Glue bent tab of stabilizer to one end, then the other. Turn piece on its side and line up divider circles to the holes on the stabilizer bar, gluing in place (tweezers work well for this). This will help stabilize the bottom and still be able to fold flat for mailing (padded envelope is recommended).
- To add a realistic “glass” look, cut a piece of acetate and glue acetate behind the black layer of bubble gum area. Remember to add the gumballs before adding the acetate frame layer, then the machine top.
- Decorate as shown. To create depth, use foam adhesive on the layers of the gum/coin dispenser and sentiment banner.
