M & M Dispenser

**If you are looking for the Inky Antics blog hop, scroll down as this is my second post today.

This week Regina challenged the Cutting Cafe DT to use her gumball images for our projects. (YAY! I am on the team for another round. Be sure to stop by the blog to welcome the new members as well as the older ones back).
My MIL has an antique M & M dispenser that takes pennies on her bean counter in the kitchen. There is a box full of pennies right by it and kids young and old alike enjoy the M & M's when they visit. This is where my inspiration came from. As soon as I saw the gumball machine I knew I would be making mine filled with M & M's. Ü
I used the Gumball Machine Card Template and cut with my Cricut. Super easy that way! It also comes in PDF in case you don't have a cutting machine. I embossed the silver parts to make it look old.
The " M & M's" were just punched and then I wrote and "m" on each one with my white gel pen.

**Regina is having a contest on the blog here. Be sure to go and play!
