Man, Oh Man

Father's Day isn't until September here, but Heart 2 Heart Challenges is all about celebrating the man in your life this week!

I have seen a lot of chocolate bar wrappers on Pinterest, but none of them fitted the chocolate options we have in our local supermarkets. I experimented and came up with a scored box that fits a Kit Kat or other double chocolate bar, then decorated it to give to the Dads in my family.

To begin, you need a piece of patterned paper cut to 5" x 7.5".

Score this piece of paper along the wider end at 1.75", 2.25", 5" and 5.5". Fold these edges in.

Take the bottom of each score and fold in between the score lines, about half an inch up the centre. This provides a nice fold for the bottom of the bag and keeps the chocolate secure.

 Apply adhesive to the side flap of the back of the box, as well as on the inside of the box between the score lines.

Secure the back flap together, and secure the bottom of the bag by pinching the folded lines you made between the score lines and rubbing shut with your fingers.

You should end up with a cute little bag that is sealed at the bottom.

Now you can slide in your chocolate bar or whatever other gift you would like to give!

I decorated m chocolate wrapper by using a Cricut cut moustache and The Best Dad Ever stamp set.

Here are the finished wrappers in two different designs- I would love to know your favourite!

There you have it, a quick and easy way to dress up a chocolate bar for Father's Day or any other time of year. If you are inspired to create something manly, be sure to share it with us at Heart 2 Heart!

  1. These are just too cute! Love the idea and the moustache on each just adds so much character. Great idea!
