Robertatalloni means creativity. Whether in writing or in more typical art forms artistry (and a bit of fun) must be part of the work.

Turn a Quality Candy Bar into a Personalized Gift by Creating a Custom Wrapper


When it comes to gifts, quality chocolate is nearly always a winner. Today, happily, good chocolate is easy to come by. If it is dressed to the nines, however, the gift rises above the commonplace. It can become a meaningful personal message to the recipient.

Making a wrapper for a candy bar is simple, but best of all, it is easy to create them in designs that speak care, consideration and love for others on almost every occasion. Get a grasp of the basic construction and you have a blueprint for beautifully conveying your greeting in a gift that can be used as a card.

(See 2013 Christmas designs below.)


Supplies for Making Candy Bar Wrappers

Household Supplies are all You Need


None of the fancy craft equipment marketed for card making or scrap book projects is needed. All that is necessary is what most households already have on hand:

– Chocolate Bar

– Paper

– Ruler

– Scissors

– Glue

– Pen

• Fairly common chocolate bars that are good quality include Ghirardelli, Lindt, Scharffen Berger, and Cadbury. However, I go for all natural/organic because I take a daily dose of approximately 70% dark chocolate. Chocolove is my current in house stock but, given a particular sale, you might find Green & Black’s or another in my pantry.

• Any paper can be used, from plain white that you draw an original design on to decorative prints from a craft store, from gift wrap to a magazine photo. Don’t dismiss the usefulness of any paper as you think your project through. Note that I used embellishments from old cards and envelopes.

• A simple ruler can be a help, but it is not absolutely necessary. Measuring is obvious, yet you can estimate what you need for this project and come close enough. A ruler can help you make crisp folds, but you don’t have to make them too crisp.

Scissors should be good craft scissor--remember not to use your sewing scissors on paper! Small scissors might help with some of the design work, but I did not need them for the examples below. The decorative edged scissors can be helpful, but in the posted examples you will see a decorative edge done with regular scissors.

• Any kind of paper glue works. I used a quality glue stick, but glue dots, a low heat glue gun, or even white liquid glue can do the job. It would be possible to use a quality double-sided tape if that’s all you have available.

• Most people have felt-tipped markers handy, but even a regular writing penwould do the job. Any pen that works with the paper you decided to use is a perfect choice. A variety of colors is nice, but not required.

Cut a piece of paper long enough to wrap around the chocolate bar and overlap 1-2", and about 1/2" shorter than the length of the candy bar.Cut a slight curve on one end.  I used a junk mail envelop to make a pattern for the curve.Adjust the overlap on the back of the candy bar and lightly crease the folded sides.To begin making the scalloped edge, mark the cut edges at about 1".  Adjust the spacing to suit your design.Create a scalloped pattern and cut it out to trace onto the paper, or just draw the scallops directly onto the paper and cut them out.Here, the scallops are cut and the paper is placed on a bright color so you can see the edge's design.  Note that the scallops do not have to perfect.Choose elements for your design and begin adding embellishments. Be sure to write your message before glueing that part of your design to the wrapper.Once the embellishments are applied, fold the wrapper around the chocolate and check to see if the edges look nice.  They may need a bit of trimming.When the overlap lines up nicely, put a dot of glue on the chocolate bar and press the straight edge to it.  The curved edge should be pulled snug and glued all the way across.Imagine the designs you could create for chocolate candy bar wrappers!  Making these to use as gifts for children or grownups is a keeper of an idea!

Three Chocolate Candy Bar Wrapper Examples


The first of these three is the one from the how-to photos above. It is the "commonest" of these examples for I used printer paper, embellishments from old cards, plain velum, and plain scissors to cut the decorative edges. Simple but happy, don't you think?

In the second example I used card stock and leftover scrapbook papers for the basic design. There are three tags with a message/greeting on each one. These wrappers could have as many tags as you wanted to make. I even considered making a fold-out message tag.

The last example was created with card stock and a leaf shaped decorative paper that coordinates with an embellishment from an old card. The message is on a piece of striped velum. The bright botanical theme is a winner, yes?

Handy Candy!


Once you have some experience with making the candy bar wrappers you may want to design a template for your favorite sized bar. You could use it to make up the major components of wrappers in your spare time and have them on hand for those busy or last minute gifts that seem to come up so unexpectedly.

They can be designed for any holiday, they make fine extras for a box of birthday goodies, they would be delightful helloes at family reunions, and are so nice for those times when you just want someone to know that you are thinking about them. Have fun designing your wrappers and consider writing a hub to show off your designs!

Neat Chocolate Gift Idea: Note Her Adhesive

Candy Wrapper Ideas Themed for Christmas


Old sayings like “it’s not what you say, but how you say it” and “first impressions are lasting impressions” apply to gift wrapping. A present does not have to be expensive to be meaningful, but either way, the presentation can speak volumes.

This update on wrapping chocolate bars to use as gifts during the Christmas season came up when a last minute holiday gathering came together in our neighborhood. Decorative paper is plentiful this time of year and using up bits and pieces by folding and taping them in layers would be fun stuff.

Try some angles layered over papers you wouldn't ordinarily use together. Be sure and incorporate both sides of double printed papers into the designs. Also, think outside the box and mix up patterns in coordinating colors. Surprise yourself with daring combinations and finish them off with cheerful bows that are oversized, fluffier than necessary, or so curly that they dance.

My little collection shown at the right evolved into a pretty little assortment and I'll probably be making more by the weekend. I hope you can look closely at the bows--simple, but festive! All sorts of embellishments could be added. A jingle bell tied to the center of the silver packages was the first that came to mind.

Let your the creative side of your brain think about the person you will be giving quality chocolate to and use their personality as a guide for your own designs. Whatever ideas you come up with, have fun using up all your extra pieces of wrapping paper and ribbon. Then make a cup of coffee and treat yourself to a daily dose of good chocolate!

      This is great! I love wrapping paper and ribbon. It's one of my favorite things to buy. Lol. Sounds strange, but it's true. I once worked with a woman who gave everyone a pair of socks for Christmas. She cleverly placed the socks in a little sleigh, added some festive ribbon and what-not and there you go! All the ladies were thrilled to death over her gift.

      I love your chocolate idea. It's so creative and those chocolates fit right into the Xmas stocking just perfectly! Lovely hub.

      Dressing them up is such a nice way to put it. Using them as a greeting card and gift all in one is a handy way to let someone know they are special to you. I'm so glad you found this idea to be immediately helpful--thanks so much for letting me know.

What an affordable and thoughtful gift, and I dare say most of my friends would be thrilled to receive one of these. The video is well-done, too. It will be fun to make the customized wrappers.

      This little gift is indeed inexpensive enough to give for those small moments in time when you want to add something extra to a big gift, or when you want to just share a simple thank you with a friend. Quality chocolate can cost dollars, though, so be sure to look for sales.

      You've made me want to design a whole line of student inspired wrappers. The slogans would be fun to create, "Congrats on Your Tip-Top Work!" "A+ Work!" "You Made It To The TOP!" "Your Work is Over the Top!" and the graphics would be even more fun. :)

      What a great idea. I've been looking for a special way to reward students for making the "A" honor roll. I think they will love this.

      I appreciate that you let me know you enjoyed this post on making personalized gifts out of chocolate bars! These would make almost any occasion extra special because they can be designed for any holiday or event. With Valentine's day around the corner, then spring and summer being full of opportunities to celebrate, I'm glad to be ready to go with this quick idea. Thanks again for your visit!

      Congratulations on the birth of your granddaughter--how precious they are!

      These wrappers are fast and easy to make, but even if they are just printed off of a computer and slapped onto the candy bars they can be personalized with beautiful messages.

      Thanks much for checking this craft project out and leaving your note!

      This is so cool and really cute. I'd only reserve to doing this to anyone really special to me. This is also a good idea in giving out candies to the kids in Halloween's and Christmas. Really enjoyed this hub. Up and useful/awesome. :)

      Good teachers may indeed need a good dose of dark chocolate and dressing it up with a personal message would make it a very nice gift!

      This project is so easy that unique ideas for making them keep popping into my head… :)

      Thanks much for stopping in and leaving your input!

      I've never considered making my own wrappers, I usually just buy them from Ebay. I guess I could give them a try with your easy instructions, but most likely I'll buy them again soon to celebrate my granddaughter's birth this month. Thank you for another fabulous hub!

      These candy bar wrappers are just too cute and just perfect for Valentine's Day coming up! I was thinking about making something else for my son's teachers for Valentine's Day but now I'm thinking doing a few of these candy bars may be the perfect little gift for them. I love all the decorative elements! Thank you so much for sharing.. voted up, useful shared and all that good stuff!
