I really didn't know what to title this post, Fun with Gum or Good Ideas Gone Bad. You know, when you have this great idea in your head and then when you go and try to make it, it looks like crap? Sorry, about the language, but I've spent the last two days trying to make a little gumball machine. Let's just say I don't give up easily and I really need to stop trying when it doesn't work.
The reason I called this post Fun with Gum is because out of all my frustration, I did have a few things that I thought turned out cute and would be fun party favors.
It all started when I found this adorable printable from Angela at Anything But Perfect.com~
Here is the link~
I put some jumbo gumballs in a pretzel bag...
and tied them up~
Next, I thought about making some little round cookie gumballs~
These turned out okay and so I put them in some pretzel bags too~
Here's a closeup of the tag~
Super cute huh? I just cut out some round cookies and topped them with colored fondant.
Next in line was a cute little glass jar that I thought I would fill with some gumballs~
Now, it would have been really sad if I would have messed up a jar of gumballs!!
I was on a roll...So I decided to make a giant gumball cookie~
The little gumballs are actually Sixlets!!
This is when I should have left well enough alone because it was downhill from there! Maybe my next post will be "Dumb Gum Ideas"!! If I get up enough courage to let you see my miserable failures...
Until then...Happy Chewing!
