Creating: Christmas Candy Bar Wrappers

These Small Gift Candy Bar Wrappers were so fun to create. I Got lots of ideas and inspiration from Pinterest. I made mine to fit a regular size Hersey Bar. I also used my Silhouette Paper cutter to cut out many of the shapes. I love how the candy bar slides out when you untie the ribbon at the top.

Simple Directions:

Cut card stock into 6x6 inch Squares

Score at 1/2 inch and then at 3 1/4 inch

Use Tape adhesive and glue bottom and sides together

Decorate as desired

Punch hole in center top for ribbon

Cut ribbon at about 20 inches long - ribbon needs to be long enough to wrap around candy bar and for it to be tied at the top.

Place ribbon through holes

Place candy bar in between ribbon and slide inside of the wrapper.

Tie ribbon at top of candy bar.

T hanks for time to be together, turkey, talk, and tangy weather.
H for harvest stored away, home, and hearth, and holiday.
A for autumn's frosty art, and abundance in the heart.
N for neighbors, and November, nice things, new things to remember.
K for kitchen, kettles' croon, kith and kin expected soon.
S for sizzles, sights, and sounds, and something special that about.

That spells THANKS for joy in living and a jolly good Thanksgiving.
