My friend Joy challenged me to figure out the pattern for a candy dispenser she had seen online shared on line here by Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs. So being a person who always loves a good visual and math challenge, I took her up on it. I revised the design a bit to secure the opening flap – make it stronger. And then I made a few containers. I actually shared this pattern first with an exclusive design for my personal Paper Pumpkin subscribers that purchased the May 2020 kit. And because this 9”x 8-1/2” sheet of cardstock turned into an adorable 2” x 2” x 3” candy dispenser box was so easy to make, I decided I needed to make more with the Whale of a Time Suite of products.
I then shared how to make these dispensers during my latest Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook this past Wednesday. I uploaded the recording of this class onto my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook) and shared it here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for the candy dispensers I demonstrated and shared.
