Well, after a good two days, three messed up prototypes,and lots of screen shots and typing of instructions it is here to be shared. This card is a lot of fun since it actually works!
The look on my friend's face when she turned the knob and got a tic-tac made me laugh.I hope your friends and family will have as much fun with this card as we did.
The most important thing about the candy you choose to put in it is to make sure you notched out the Sweet Treat cup enough but not too much for you candy to fall through to the mechanism. The mechanism is a pain in the rear to make and you also have to make sure you tuck in that paper just right so it can catch the right size of candy you have chose. Don't ask me how I know this is important...LOL.
