Simple Candy Bar Wrappers

October 21st, 2011

Hey everyone! As we all know, Halloween is just around the corner! And we know that because the stores are already full of Christmas gear! I think Costco had Christmas lights out in July.

But first things first.

At my house, we give out FULL SIZED candy bars. My husband wants to be “that” house, so who am I to say no? Especially when 30 full sized bars is less than $15 at Costco.

Behold the yumminess….

In order to dress the candy bars up a little bit, I went to Jen’s awesome designs at Design House Digital. Specifically the Spooked line. Vintage Findings would work great for this too. Just depending if you want to go traditional or vintage Halloween.

I printed out a couple papers from the Spooked Collection.

I used Microsoft Publisher to do this. I simply created an 8.5×11 document and inserted the digital papers as a jpg. You could use MS Word or any version of Photoshop for this as well. I am not very well versed at digi scrapping, so I tend to choose the easiest way. I printed the documents onto white cardstock.

I cut each 8.5×11 piece in half the long way, which left them just a little bit short of the length of the candy bars. I made a quick template with each candy bar and simply wrapped and secured with adhesive!

Here are some pretty bars wrapped and ready to go home with some new costumed friends!

Have a happy Halloween everyone!
