Did you know that chewing gum can increase your productivity? According to studies, chewing gum has incredible effects (speeds up reaction time, boosts cognitive abilities, combats sleepiness, and reduces stress)! My son is starting a new business this week and my daughter has her first major grad school test so I thought I would send them both a little something “Extra”.
This gum holder is fun and simple to make. I had to make my daughter the cat version (as Storm is her “study buddy” these days) and went with some retired Country Club DSP for my son. (His new business adventure is virtual golf.) You can customize the colors, etc. for someone in your life! I’d like to thank Tracy Bradley for the inspiration for this gum holder box idea!
Here’s the details:
Cardstock for box: 3 1/2 x 8 1/2
Score on the long side @ 3 1/8, 3 5/8, 6 3/4, 7 1/4
Score on the short side @ 1/2, 3
DSP: 2 3/8 x 1 1/8, 2 3/8 x 2
- Cut small square and rectangle from short side (* photo below).
- Cut 1/2 inch squares from the middle section.
- Punch or die cut circle notch from the top of the box.
- Use Tear & Tape or Liquid Glue to adhere the sides.
- Add DSP panels.
- Pop up die cut or punched shape with Stampin’ Dimensionals to slide lid under to keep box closed. *Tip: Fold the lid over and add 2 Dimensionals just under the lid. Add a third dimensional on the bottom of the die cut piece.
Here’s a few more photos for you!
I included the productivity information (from business coach, John Sanpietro) in the cards I sent with their gum. You can click on the link below to print.
Have a great day! Chew some gum and be productive. 🙂
Stay safe! Stay well!
