Santa Hershey Bars!!!

Tis the Season for gifting and why not make the packaging just as special as the person you are giving it to!? You can check out some of my other posts and videos in this Gift Packaging Series by clicking here, here, and here! Today I’m going to show you how to decorate a Hershey Chocolate Bar (or any other large candy bar)!

Santa Hershey Bars,

How cute are these? They would make a cute, yet affordable gift for teachers, neighbors, co-workers, friends and family! Also, great stocking stuffers! I started out with a piece of Real Red cardstock measuring 5-1/2″ x 6-1/2″. You will place Sticky Strip along the 6-1/2″ side and wrap it around the Hershey Bar. WAIT….before wrapping it around, run it over your Bone Folder or over the edge of a table to break down the fibers of the paper a little and allow it to curve better. Then you will take a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ and using your Scallop Border Punch, punch both sides! Adhere this piece to the front of your Hershey Bar with Snail Adhesive. Using your 1/2″ Circle Punch, you will punch out 4 in Basic Black and adhere to your Whisper White piece (3 on top, 1 on the bottom) and you will leave space between the 3rd and 4th one for your Santa Belt. For the Belt, you will need a piece of Basic Black measuring 3/4″ x 6-1/2″. Again you will want to run it over your Bone Folder to break down the fibers and attach it to the Bar with Sticky Strip. I overlap the ends in the front so I can hide it behind the buckle, but you can put it in the back as well. Now for the buckle, I prefer the one of the right which was a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper punched out with the Curly Label Punch. Then I took the Petite Curly Label Punch and punched a black one to layer on top! The bar on the left was done with a square piece of Crushed Curry that has the Petite Curly Label Punch punched out of the middle. I did a few like that and then was browsing Pinterest and saw the other option on a project and fell in love. You know me and my bling! 🙂 You are all set now!!! To see this in action, check out the Video Tutorial below! Don’t forget to give it a thumbs up if you liked it!

Thank You Hershey Bars,

Here are a few others that I created for Fall/Thanksgiving! I used the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper and added some Mossy Meadow Satin Stitched Ribbon. For the greeting, I used the Lots of Thanks Stamp Set and Curly Label Punch!

Birthday Hershey Bars,

Here are a few Hershey Bars that I created with some of the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper and Big News Stamp Set. The bottom right one was done with the Back to Black Designer Series Paper and Pool Party Cotton Ribbon! I love these because of the bright colors and MELON MAMBO!!!!

Baby Hershey Bars,

 Everyone loves Chocolate especially someone who just had a baby! What a great little treat to bring to the new parents or grandparents! These were done with the Lullaby Designer Series Paper and Label Love Stamp Set (Artisan Label Punch)!

I hope you enjoyed these cute little chocolates and use them for your next occasion! Let me know in the comments below which one is your favorite!

Happy Stampin’
