With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, we thought we'd share a quick and easy candy bar wrap with you. This little treat shows you again how to make those cute little medallions. You can view that Freebie Friday tutorial here.
First, gather your supplies. You will need one piece of 6x6 patterned paper, a Kit Kat candy bar (this one fits perfectly in the 6x6, however, you can modify your size of paper to fit any candy bar), a paper crimper, stamps, ribbon, whatever you need to embellish your special treat. We used the "Cheers to You" from the Stampin' UP! set, Cheers To You.
Next, using Sticky Strip or Scor-tape (we used Scor-tape in this example) along the bottom of your patterned paper. Lay the candy bar in the center and grab your paper crimper.
Fold the paper around the candy bar creasing the sides around the candy. Remove the backing off the adhesive tape and wrap the paper tightly around the candy bar and seal.
Add a small amount of adhesive (we used Tombow) along the inside of the open ends of the wrapper. Seal well.
Next, you crimp both ends of your package. Once you place the end in the crimper turn the handle until you reach the end of the candy bar. Be careful to seal well but not to crush your candy bar!
It should look like this.
Now, for the fun embellishments. The possibilities are endless. As mentioned earlier, we used another medallion. This one was created using a 1 x 12 piece of patterned paper. We stamped "cheers to you" in black ink on white card stock and punched it out, added a little sponging and glued it to the medallion. The layers are a 2x2 piece of Wild Wasabi and a 1-3/4 x 1-3/4 piece of white card stock.
There you go! Quick, easy and not to mention a yummy CHOCOLATE treat!!
Thanks for stopping.
