Gumball Machine Shaker Card

Happy Friday everyone! Today is my first official 3 Girl JAM design team post!
It has been so much fun playing around with some of the new products in the 3 Girl JAM store.
For today's project I used 3 of the new twine colors. (Peppermint Red, Green Apple and Lilac Purple) This twine is different from most of the others that I have tried. Two of the things I really like about it is that it is thicker than most and the white is not a really bright white! I also love the way it is packaged! Already wrapped around a card so it doesn't get tangled and on a ring so they stay together! How awesome is that??

The gumball machine is from The Cutting Cafe. I turned it into a shaker card by adding some foam tape and clear packaging plastic.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Happy crafting!
