Stylin' Snowfolk Candy Bar Wrapper

Ever time a new snowman set comes out I have to try to figure out how to use it on a candy bar wrapper. Cold Play was one of my favorites for doing this and now the Stylin' Snowfolk works too.  It's a lot like the Cold Play set except you get the snowman body.  And this one has a lot more parts for the snowman. You can even make a snowlady!  

I like this set for the smaller candy bars.  I used the .45 oz bars for this one.  And since it's so close to Halloween, I was able to get them on sale!!  Ya gotta LOVE that!  

I bet you'd like the measurements to the card stock, huh?  Well, I'm more than happy to share them with you so you can make these for your friends, for parties or you can even have the kiddies help you with them for their school friends!

You will need a snowman stamp set and a small chocolate bar, of course.  Then you will need a piece of white card stock cut 3-1/8" wide x 2-7/8" long.

Next you will need to score the card stock.  On the 3-1/8" side you will need to score it at it at 5/8", 1", 2-1/8" and 2-1/2".  

Now before you fold the scores, stamp your images.  Then fold the score lines.  Wrap the card stock around the candy.  I glued mine in place.  I also wrapped the card stock around the candy bar tightly which distorted the shape of the rectangle the sleeve creates. But it did help keep the candy bar in there better.  If you don't wrap it tighter it could slip out easy.  The distortion is not that much and you will probably be the only one to notice it.  Now I also wanted to tell you why I used glue instead of tape.  I felt the glue would hold better.  Once you glue it, remove the candy bar and use your bone folder inside to help the glue adhere better and quicker.  Put the candy bar back in and move on to the next one.  I know you'll make more than one!!!

These are fun to make and very simple too!  

Have fun with the instructions!
