If you’re looking for kick-ass free printable candy bar wrappers for your wedding favors, we’ve got you covered. Because if you’re going to provide favors (for your wedding, or a wedding shower, or hell, just for a birthday party), you might as well make them edible, right? This downloadable wrapper from Printable Press is way prettier than anything you can get from those 1000favor.com type of places. Plus it’s a whole lot cheaper. Which means, you can do the good chocolate.
First, you’ll want to pop over to Printable Press to download the chocolate bar wrapper template (when you download the template, make sure you’re using Adobe Reader, and not your browser’s PDF viewer, or else you won’t be able to customize the template properly). Once the design is downloaded, you can customize your chocolate bar wrapper by clicking inside the space where names and dates go, and add your name and the date of your event to the design (or write something else entirely like, “Eat This Chocolate When You’re Tipsy in the Hotel.” The space is yours to do with what you will.)
- Chocolate Bar*
- X-Acto Knife or Scissors
- Ruler or Straight Edge
- Double-Sided Tape
Instructions For Printable Candy Bar Wrappers
Next cut your design using an X-Acto knife and a straight edge, taking advantage of the markings included as a cutting guide. Then unwrap just the outer wrapper of your chocolate bar (leaving the foil) and place a piece of double-stick tape on the top side of the chocolate bar. Next, center your design on top of the chocolate bar and adhere it to the double-stick tape.
After your label is stuck down, you’ll want to fold the sides of the label around the chocolate bar and pinch the edges to give the label its shape (this helps with the next step). Next, flip the chocolate bar over (with the label attached) and place a piece of double-stick tape inside the label and on the foil wrapper as shown above. Then fold the side of the label that doesn’t have any tape on it first (it’ll stick to the piece of tape on the foil), and fold the side of your label with tape on top of that to stick everything together.
Ta-da! This is a super easy project that you can do while catching up on Pretty Little Liars. When you’re done putting your chocolate bars together, you can even send them all to me and I’ll tell you how you did. Can’t promise you’ll get them back though.
