Merry Christmas!!! Well, maybe Merry Christmas, depending on what day you’re reading this. Maybe it’s more like “Merry ALMOST Christmas!” or maybe even “Merry POST Christmas!”
Whatever the situation, a free printable will help. And, more than that, chocolate will help. And what happens when you combine a FREE PRINTABLE with CHOCOLATE? You get an instant gift!
That was the inspiration behind these wrappers. When my first son was born over 6 years ago, I was a first time mom who was excited to do ALL THE THINGS. All the things included making handmade gifts for people who came and visited me in the hospital when my son was born. So I did. I decided to make custom candy wrappers for those Hershey Miniatures. And it took f-o-r-e-v-e-r! I was new to doing Graphics work and it was really painful. But I got ‘er done.
And everyone who visited me, loved them. Because, really? Chocolate! And newborn baby!
I wanted to do one for Christmas. This time, it took me WAY less time. Now that I have a lot more experience under my belt AND there are way more friendly graphic design tools out there, it didn’t take me nearly as long. Yay!
Each sheet contains 15 wrappers and are easy to cut out. Just use a color printer and regular paper – you’ll need to be able to bend it around the candy bar. Then just a small piece of tape will keep it in place. Easy peasy!
Put several in a candy bag and these make great gifts for:
- Service workers like letter carriers, trashmen
They even make great decorations at your table for Christmas. And really – who wouldn’t love a decoration that you can eat? Ultimate in practicality!
You can even plan ahead and buy them from the previous season when they go on sale/clearance. I’ll often see 4th of July themed ones on clearance at Target in August. Buy a bunch and freeze them. No one cares what “theme” the original wrapper underneath has. These are also easy to buy on Amazon — then they’re even shipped to your house. TO YOUR HOUSE! It doesn’t get much easier than that!
Don’t have a color printer? Don’t worry – you can still use these! I don’t have a color printer either, so I just uploaded it to my nearest FedEx Kinkos store. That’s just one option; you can also ask a friend or neighbor to print off a few sheets for you…maybe in exchange for a piece of chocolate? Mmmmm…. Either way, Merry Christmas!
