An oldie, but a goodie . . .

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!

Kathy, here today, wanting to share with you an “oldie but a goodie” project.  It’s one I’ve done many times over the past couple years . . . make candy bar wrappers.  I especially LOVE to make them during the Halloween season . . . plus, with this one, it helps me use up some of my smaller PaperTemptress scraps.

This is such an easy, peasy project.  Just take a 6×6 piece of patterned or solid-colored paper and wrap around a regular size candy bar (I used Hershey’s Milk Chocolate) and then decorate it.  For this project, I used my bat punch from EKsuccess and punched 4 bats from scraps of my Onyx mica/metallic paper from PaperTemptress.  I then layered two (2) of them together for each candy bar to give the bats definition and added googly eye for fun.  Then printed a sentiment (a friend from my LSS actually gave me three that she had leftover) . . . and VOILA! I had a cute little gift to give someone.  Another way I’ve done these is use an orange paper and make it look like a pumpkin by drawing a face on it . . . or using a limey green paper and a strip of black and googly eyes to make a Frankenstien.  The possibilities are endless . . . I’ve even done this with mini-candy bars.  So cute in a little candy dish. 🙂

Have a Happy Halloween (or Happy Harvest)!!!

Kathy
