Penguin Place, Hershey Bar Sleeve or Wrapper, Christmas Stocking Stuffers, Weekend Project

I have not made a Hershey bar wrapper/sleeve in a while. I like making them because they are quick and easy to make, fun and are great to give away.

All you need is a 5-1/2" x 6-1/2" piece of card stock. You do want to use card stock because you need something with a bit more substance to it than copier paper.  Though copier paper will work, just not as well. And the words will show through from the Hershey bar. I used Soft Sea Foam for the base of the sleeve.

I scored the piece on the short side at 1-1/4", 1-1/2", 3-3/4" and 4". Fold all of the score lines in. On the back I glued the inside edge of one side and the outside edge of the other side and I joined them around my candy bar. I needed to make sure I didn't glue the pieces too far in so the candy bar wouldn't slide in. It's just best to include the candy bar in this step. I removed the candy bar and took my bone folder and burnished the inside to help the glue set.

I slipped the candy bar back in so the piece was more solid to work on.

I cut a piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) 12" x 12"  "Penguin Playmates" package. This piece measured 2" x 5-1/4". The layer behind it is a 2-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Soft Succulent card stock. I glued the DSP to the card stock and then glued it all to the front of the sleeve.

I fussy cut the cute penguin from the "Penguin Playmates" DSP. I die cut a1-7/8" Basic White circle and a Soft Succulent scalloped circle for the layer behind it.  I stamped the snowflakes from the "Penguin Place set using Soft Succulent ink that was stamped off once. Then I glued those two circles together. I added Dimensionals to the back and set it aside.

The words are from the same "Penguin Place" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock using black Memento ink. Then I die cut them using the 1-1/16" circle die (the smallest die in the pack of circle dies) and then I die cut a Soft Succulent scalloped circle for the layer. I glued the words to the scalloped circle. I added Dimensionals to the back and set it aside. 

I set the penguin on a piece of scrap copier paper and I took my Basic Black marker and I traced around the black areas of it. I didn't do a great job of fussy cutting, there was some light colors showing but tracing around the little fellow like that makes the edges all dark and it looks like you are the most accurate fussy cutter around!!  I could have done it for the feet and hat but I didn't have a Fresh Freesia marker and I didn't think the feet were too bad. They are but I'm pretending they aren't! LOL

I set the top circle in place and then I added the penguin.

The word piece was added and the sleeve was done.

See, it's very quick and easy to make. These make great gift for teachers to give to their students. Plus you can't go wrong with a penguin or snowman, it just lets you think of winter and not Christmas. They make excellent stocking stuffers and great little gifts for the mail carrier, USP driver, etc.  

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see this fun candy bar wrapper/sleeve,
