Sweet and Special Chocolate Wrappers

{April 27, 2010}


by Dena

Everyone likes a little something sweet, and it's always special when an event is put together with custom-themed decorations and favors. Wrapping your own candy bars also saves a lot of money when compared with companies that offer the same service. And yours will look so much better because of the three-dimensional elements!


Gather:

  • Sizzix Machine
  • Sizzix Dies
  • Candy bars with foil wrapping
  • Scrapbook and textured paper
  • Rhinestones
  • Trinkets
  • Pop-dot adhesive stickers
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided tape
  • Ruler
  • Pencil

Create:

  1. Carefully remove the outer wrapping of the candy bar, leaving the foil wrapping intact.
  2. Lay the wrapper out flat and trace these measurements onto a piece of patterned or colored paper with the ruler and pencil. Cut this rectangle along the pencil lines.
  3. Wrap this main rectangle around the candy bar and secure with some double-sided tape along the back.
  4. Decorate and customize the front of the candy bars. Little paper accents can be added on with pop-dots for dimension.

This project is endlessly adaptable to any event: weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and more. Not only is the end result unique, but also the process of creating them can be a party in itself. Set up a table full of little bowls of trinkets, embellishments, candy bars and decorative paper, and invite your friends over for a deliciously sweet craft night. This project is so much fun with a Sizzix die-cutting machine; I was able to cut my specific paper shapes in seconds this way.
