  • 2. Cut Blush Red Dark Prismatics cardstock (Prism Papers) just shorter than the candy bar's length and one inch longer than the width. Cut Winter Wonderland Twinkle (Webster's Pages) patterned paper 1/4" narrower than cardstock and mat it onto the cardstock. Use Photo Tape (Scrapbook Adhesives by 3-L) to adhere the double-layered paper around the candy bar.
  • 3. Use the Wizard Die Cutting Machine (Spellbinders) to die cut classic scalloped circle and classic circle from Spring Willow Medium, Blush Red Dark and Natural Smooth cardstocks (Prism Papers). Apply Krylon Gold leaf to the Blush Red Dark classic circle and mat it on the Spring Willow Medium classic scalloped circle. Use Vintage Sepia and Crimson Red Versafine Inks (Tsukineko) to stamp "Eat Lots of Chocolate & Celebrate the Season" sentiments from the Christmas Stamp Ensemble (JustRite Stampers) onto Natural Smooth classic scalloped circle. Mat scalloped circle onto Blush Red Dark cardstock. Tie a red sheer ribbon around the middle of the candy bar and use 3-D Foam Squares (Scrapbook Adhesives by 3-L) to adhere the main image to the candy bar wrap.
