For a fun and delicious Christmas craft project, get some candy bars (regular size) and wrap them in paper and decorate. If you are looking for Candy Bar Wrapper Christmas ideas, here are three for you! I swear I only bought these Hershey Bars with Almonds for the purpose of crafting and creating! You will have to measure your own candy bars, but for mine, I cut the card stock at 6″ x 4 1/2″ to wrap around the candy bar. You could also use designer paper. Then just decorate! It’s a good way to use up some of your scraps!
For the snowman, I just used three circle punches in different sizes for his body, a scrap of designer paper for his scarf and the 1″ Square Punch and Word Window Punch for his hat! Plus a little flower punched out with the Boho Blossom Punch with a little Rhinestone for an accent. I just drew on his face with markers.
For the Santa candy bar, just tear a strip of Whisper White on both sides after wrapping the candy bar in Real Red card stock. Punch some black buttons with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. The belt buckle is Gold Foil punched with the Curly Label Punch and a square of Basic Black in the center to make it look like a belt! And of course the belt itself is a 1″ strip of Basic Black.
The elf legs are made with strips of designer paper from Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper. The shoes are fashioned out of the Curly Label Punch trimmed down to look like shoes. The wrapper still needed something so I glued on a strip of Real Red around to look like shorts and a belt around the middle. See, you can just play around and see what you come up with!
