pretty candy bars

April 27, 2012 § 2 Comments

This time of year, I find myself needing a few creative gifts as Mother’s Day and other spring events fill our calendar, and the girls’ school activities begin winding down. One of my favorite crafts of all time is decorating store-bought candy bars. I love taking something simple and inexpensive and turning it into such a personal gift. I wrap the outside of the bar in pretty scrapbook paper and then add ribbons and other embellishments. They are so fun to make and the perfect little “just thinking of you” gift. I can’t wait to give mine away to the special friends in my world.

    I LOVE the way you think, and it may be because I would do the exact same thing as you! ha ha and I love the sentiment of making a little gift into something special! My daughter and I have also made chocolate bars into gifts, a little differently though. We have done invitations and we made wrappers at Christmas to give away as gifts to the bus driver, teacher etc… ( hmmm, I should blog about it when Dec. comes 🙂 )
