These are another edible that I usually customize with a special custom wrapper. This one is much smaller and easier to do. Similar to the Full-size Hershey wrappers, in a previous post, this one uses Microsoft Word as my editing application. I have attached word template and pdf template for those who want to try out this project.
- Package of Hersheys Miniature Candy Bars
- Scor Tape 1/8″ 1 Pack 1/8″ 2 Pack 1/4″ 1 Pack 1/2″ 1 Pack Multi-Pack 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 – 1 of each
- White, Pearl or Silver paper 8 1/2 x 11. White Pearl Silver
- Scissor sharpener, This Fiskars gadget has saved all my scissors from being dull, it is optional but works so well. I can never do without it.
- Access to computer with Word and internet access.
- Access to Ink jet printer.
- Download and open the word file.
- The file will have a completed mini wrapper in the upper left-hand corner of the page.
NOTE: Do not delete the border of the wrapper. It is the exact size needed to cover the miniature candy bar being wrapped.
- Select the wording, fonts, and images.
- Go ahead and add them in, size so they are really close to the originals on the template.
- Select each new text box or image you added in and send to back.
- Select the template and right click on it.
- When the menu comes up look for the word ungroup and that will show you the template has three items grouped together.
- Proceed to select the items you do not need and delete them.
- Select the border, text box and image, right click and select group.
- If all objects grouped together, the wrapper can be selected as one object and copied multiple times on the page. This will be handy if you bought the big bad of Hershey’s miniatures.
- After you copied as many mini labels to fit the page, print one page on normal copy paper.
- Cut one label out.
- Grab a miniature bar and put the label around it making sure it has Scor tape.
- Remove Scor tape release paper and attach the label. If it looks good, you are all set to print in your white metallic paper. Just in case, if you are using an hp after printing, let labels dry overnight. I used them immediately and some of mine smudged.
Try out this project, it’s a nice touch for many events. Plus the miniature bars are appealing for most guests unless the have nut allergies. Video to follow.
If you have any issues, reach out by comment. I’ll be happy to help.
