What you need
Some Computer Imagery Skills
You need to buy chocolate bar’s or sweets that the outside wrapper can be removed to expose the tinfoil wrapper.
The size of your project is going to depend on the size of your chocolate bar.
Remove the original paper wrapper and using a ruler measure out the overall size. Measure where the customized text or image will need to be.
Using these measurements setup a template either on a computer using a Word document or using a piece of photo copier paper.
If you are designing it on a computer then set your tabs to the correct size and start designing your image. If you are laying it out on paper then, glue your images down. Remember photocopying will make it black n white so don’t choose any images with a lot of detail as it will be lost. Ideally if you are using a photocopier to make your wrappers then stamps are a great way to create the designs.
We have placed some images below for you to use for your wrappers. Just re-size them then add your own text and graphics. Right click and save the image onto your hard drive.
NOTE: make sure you cut out and either glue the ingredients label onto your new wrapper or include it loose inside the wrapper. This way everyone is aware of the ingredients for allergies.
There is heaps of software on the market for candy bar wrappers which come complete with various templates. If you are planning on making a lot of wrappers or need some help designing templates then we recommend purchasing some software like that.
