Candy Bar Wrapper - Inexpensive, Quick Stocking Stuffer idea!

I had so much fun sharing my hat tutorial last week that I thought I would share another little ditty I make!  I've been making these candy bar wrappers for quite a few years, too, and thought you might be interested in using the idea for a quick, inexpensive gift!   Each photo describes how I made my candy bar wrapper but you can make substitutions - this is simply an idea I thought I would share!   Hugs, Janice





I just finished the two below - they are both made from an illustration of two birds, one printed out on glossy photo paper while the other is printed on cardstock.   Just an example of a couple other ideas for your candy bar wrappers!   They can be shared year round - just choose different postcards/photos!  Have fun!

  5. Thank you so much, ladies! Esther, I did decide to stitch along the edges as I felt it was a bit too plain beforehand! I'm making a more modern one now that I'll post pics of when I'm done :O) Hugs, Janice

  11. What a great idea! Thank you for sharing this - must admit if someone gave this to me I wouldn't want to open it even though Lindt is my favourite chocolate!!
    Have a good weekend.

  14. If you print it on (printable) fabric, would this not be easier?

    1. Yes, it would be a whole lot easier but I love using mixed media with the photo or card art mixed with the buttons, flowers, beads, etc. with the backdrop being fabric! I would love to see a picture if you make one with the card printed on the fabric! Hugs, Janice
