Candy Bar Gift Boxes

My Dad's favorite candy bar is the Mars Bar. We couldn't find them for years. Then, one day at Walmart, there they were at a register. I think I screamed out loud. Now, every time I go to Walmart, I grab a bunch to save for him. My cats like to give him a Father's Day gift every year, they are very thoughtful that way! So, I came up with a idea to package them up. Somebody somewhere probably already thought of it, but I think it's a pretty nifty idea.

I took two clear card boxes and filled them with five candy bars each. They fit perfectly, who'da thunk it?! I found the Fluffles stamp on a clearance rack at Jo-Ann's. I stamped it twice, colored it to look like my fur babies, and then popped it up. I paper pieced the present. Using my nestabilities, I created the round tag and then finished it off with a belly band. My Dad will probably see this post before Father's Day, but I know he will act surprised.

Stamp: Stampendous-Fluffles
Paper: Papertrey Ink, The Paper Company
Ink: Memento
Misc: Clear card boxes, nestabilities, sharpie pen, copics, ribbon, pop up dots, white gel pen, candy bars

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. This is awesome! It is my favorite candy bar too but I have not seen them in like 10 years or more. I will be checking out all the registers at Walmart next time I go. Love the stamp you used for this
