Happy Valentine's Day!
This is a quick post to show you what I made for my kiddos. I made some adorable "vending machines." This creative pattern comes from my all time fav designer, Regina Easter who owns The Cutting Cafe. Regina has a wonderful video on how to assemble this cutie pie. Some of the accent pieces/digi stamps are also from Regina.

I did cut this project with my Pazzles InVue personal cutter. I even cut the clear boxes with my InVue! I had to play with the settings to cut the clear plastic (acetate). Regina has a link for clear cardstock. You can use transparencies. I found a large piece of acetate in the art section of a craft/hobby store. My piece measured 20 X 25 inches.

We eat very little candy at our house. I filled my boys' candy machines with a puzzle. Still bright and colorful. I am not sure what to give to my daughter and god- daughter, so I stuffed their machines with tissue paper.

These Valentine vending machines measure approximately 7 inches tall by 3.5 inches square. There are several topper options for the machine. I chose to go without a top.
