2. Center the printed design on the top/middle of your candy bar, and fold paper over to the back of your bar. Secure paper with a piece of clear tape.

3. Fold opposite edge around your bar, trim any excess paper, and secure with tape.

4. With the back side of your bar facing up, fold in edges as shown in the photo.

5. Fold the pointed flap up and secure on the back of your bar with tape. Repeat for the other end.

    this is for someone that has time to make crafts and I’m not the person to make crafts all the time and I’m never home or to busy to do any thing like these candy bar wrappers that is just to much and you would need a steady hand to make that wrapper

    So cute! Easy and adorable. The blue bow one is my favorite. I used regular sized Hershey bars and just trimmed off the edges. Fast and simply way to give a unique and adorable gift!
