Valentine Candy Bar Wrappers

 If you are looking for a quick and simple, diy Valentine craft that is also a gift, consider candy bar wrappers! No baking or messes to clean up, and the presentation is so cute! Today we have three different candy bar wrapper ideas for you that we are sure you are going to love and use!

 First up are the candy bar wrappers from Anything But Perfect. Angela, does some really great graphic design work and gives so much away for free. Be sure to make some time to visit Angela's blog and shop soon. What can we say, we love these wrappers.

 Print off on card stock and wrap around a normal size candy bar and tape it closed. Or, do what we did and embellish the wrapper {though it is fine the way it is}, a little with heart stickers and a red ribbon!

 These are the perfect little classroom gift, teachers gifts, co-workers gifts and of course family gifts. You can find the link to the download below if you would like to get yours.

 We decided we could make our own candy bar wrappers, so we did! We used Valentine card stock and simple Valentine embellishments we have been whittling away at this season.

 We used the template from Anything But Perfects wrapper to trace a pattern onto our card stock paper. Wrapped it around the candy bar, taped and decorated it. Easy and fun!

 For our third candy bar wrapper we went with these little cuties from Iced Jems. It is actually part of an entire Valentine printable collection Jem designed. If you are looking for more, than check Iced Jems out.

Just print off on card stock and assemble around mini candy bars. We found some after Christmas mini's and wrapped them up.

The wrapped mini's make good little treats for the kids when you want to control the amount of sugar they get. Plus, they are so darn cute!

Well, that's a wrap! Whether you make your own candy bar wraps or use one of the free printable wraps, they do make quite a statement. Have fun! Be inspired, get creative!

Rejoice with those who rejoice;
mourn with those who mourn.
