Altered Candy Bar...

So I think altering a candy bar is such a fun and cute treat to give someone. And I guess this time of year, you're always looking for cute and fun treats, right?! :)

I'm sure you have seen these everywhere...but here is my Christmas version of one! :)
If you haven't seen these everywhere, and want to know how to make one...here is how:

1. Measure your candy bar...add a little bit, and double it. :) Then measure the length of the candy bar and just add a little to have room on the bottom for the crimping. How's that for scientific?! :) (Here I used a 6x6 card stock piece.)
2. Score and fold the card stock in half. Put sticky strip down the one side and the bottom. Seal it all together.
3. Using a crimper, (for you 80's folks...not a hair crimper but a scrapbooking crimper..haha :) ) put the bottom of the candy bar holder in and turn the knob 4ish times. ( However far up you want the crimping.) I love the look of this, plus it helps squish the sticky strip together. :)
4. Decorate as you wish and place your candy bar inside.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions!

thanks for the instructions!! I definitely need to go buy some candy (and hide it from myself before I eat it all) to try all of these things.
