Candy Bar Gifts
I found these super cute candy bar wrappers over here and here and here and decided to try them out for co-workers. My Santa wrappers are not the pull kind, as featured on Kerry's blog, I very carefully took apart the cardboard wrapper that came with the chocolate and re-made my own, using these dimensions:
8" x 6.5" cardstock(retired colors) by stamping up, its nice and thick and resembles the cardboard fair enough
On the 8" side, I scored at 6/8", 1" ,7 "7 2/8"
On the 6.5" side, I scored at 3/4", 4 1/8", 4 3/8"
Then I trimmed the four corners on the inside score lines, leaving only one long inner section to complete the wrapper.
You should use these cutting guidelines, as guidelines only as I found even though I purchased 30 of the exact same Russel Stover Chocolates, they all ended up fitting in the wrapper slightly differently.
For the Santa wrapper, I used a strip of white trimmed to 6" x 2.25" and trimmed both sides lengthwise, using the SU Scallop border punch.
For the belt, I used the new SU Petite Curly Label Punch and some Brushed Silver Cardstock, I dont yet have the 1/2" circle punch, so I used the big circles that come with the build and owl punch by SU.
For the snowman, I used the owl punch circles and heart, 1 3/4" circle, some staz on opaque inker for the eyes, a little retired ribbon as a scarf, a paper pieced hat with a corner rounder and an old snowflake jewel I had in my stash.
For the penguin, I used multiple ovals and hearts, I didn't have the right punches to make it work, so I hand pieced most of these together.
