Make and Take candy bar wrap

I stopped by Paper Garden Botique on Saturday, November 22, 2008 to pick up some embellishments and found they were doing a "Make and Take" , so after my purchase, I sat down and put this little dainty together - it's so nice to have everything scored and cut to size because it went together super fast and was so much fun.

Directions for Hershey Bar wrappers
1. Cut a 5.5" X 5.5" square piece of red card stock
2. Score at 1.5", 1.75", 4", and 4.25"
3. Cut white piece of cardstock at 5.5" X .75"
4. Cut black belt band at 5.75" X 1"
5. White cardstock about 1" X 1.5"

To make the belt buckle, on silver cardstock, use the yellow square Marvy punch and then center it with the blue square Marvy punch and you get a framed square.

Since the white piece of cardstock was already adhered in the midde of the red card stock and the half circle already punched for me, I don't know exactly what size punch you'd use. Just make a judgement call. Lay the cardstock face down on your table, (I folded the scored lines to get better creases, put the candy bar in, fold the open sides in and tape one flap of cardstock over the other. Take the black strip, wrap the red cardstock and adhere in the back, same as your red cardstock. Turn the paper over. Take the smallest piece of paper, put it straight perpendicular to a red stamp pad and press it into the stamp pad on all four sides to get an edge of red around it. Adhere a glue dot to the back; take the silver "belt buckle" and apply tape to the back of the buckle. Now place the tag and buckle down so the tag doesn't show on the inside of the buckle. Voila!
