AWAG Candy Bars

Here is a quick project I used for a Make N Take at the regional AWAG conference. It holds a Hershey Chocolate Bar (chocolate is always a bonus). They are super simple to make. Just a piece of DSP wrapped around the bar and secured with snail, a coordinating piece of cardstock wrapped around as a belly band, a Rhinestone brad and one of my favorite things......a flower from the Pretties kit. Like I said, super simple and fast. The ladies at the conference seemed to enjoy them, and I enjoyed showing it to them. If you would like to make your own.......

Step 1: Cut a piece of DSP 6"x 8". Wrap it around the Hershey bar. (Make sure to put snail around all 4 sides of the DSP, so it looks like a square).

Step 2: Using the crimper crimp both ends of the DSP. The extra snail you put on the ends will make it a permanent seal. (Do NOT try to crimp without snail, they will come apart and your candy bar will drop out....I'm speaking from experience!)

Step 3: Cut a piece of Coordinating Cardstock 2" x 6". Punch a hole in the center and place 1 large rhinestone brad and one Large flower from the Pretties kit onto this piece of card stock. Wrap Cardstock around the candy bar and secure in place using sticky strip.

Step 4: Find someone worthy and give it to them to say thanks!!!

  2. Hi Kelly, Thanks for popping by my blog to take a peek at my SU! Craft Bazaar goodies. Thank you also for telling me about the Latenight Stampers. I joined!! ;)

    Also, love the simplicity of this. I just made a candy bar wrapper where you can pull the candy bar out with a piece of ribbon. I had seen them everywhere and wanted to give them a try!

  3. Very pretty, Kelly! It's very classic and elegant looking. I love it! Thanks for all the time you put in to posting your blog finds. I appreciate it! Mary
