DIY Decorative Candy Wrappers

Sometimes as the hostess of a party you don't have a LOT of time to make delicious treats, or perhaps you want to add another element to a dessert table.  One option is to take candy bars, whatever size, shape, flavor, and cover them with paper to create a treat that matches the decor of your party (or perhaps is just a little cuter than the average candy bar sitting in a dish). 

  How To:  Create Decorative Candy Wrappers

Bill of Materials:
Decorative Paper that matches the party decor
Scissors or Paper Cutter
Ruler or Measuring Tape

First,  measure the size of your candy.  Both width and "around" length to make sure you cut paper long enough to wrap all the way around. 

Second: cut paper to appropriate length.  

Tip:  If you want to cover the candy with two colors, cut second paper color a bit smaller than the first.

Third, cover the candy by taping one end of the cut piece of paper and wrapping around candy once.  (In my example I had to cut excess paper off because my strips were too long.  

Tip:  If you are using two colors, wrap the candy with one color and then again with the second smaller strip of paper.  

Fourth, tape other end down.  

Done!   Wasn't that super easy?!
