This is the cutest little project! And even if you are not crafty, this is doable, I promise. Can you print things out? Can you buy chocolate? Do you have scissors and tape? Then you can make these! You’ll love writing sweet messages with them, and so will your kids.
These wraps were originally brainstormed as a Valentine’s Day project. But once the chocolates starting getting wrapped, it became clear that these wraps would be adorable any time of year!
Write messages for Mother’s Day, birthdays, book club, new babies, dad’s day, kid’s day, after-surgery day, teacher gifts, a treat for the mail carrier. Even a ho-hum date night. Everyone, EVERYONE, will love this. Wrap up initials as place markers at a dinner party. Drop off a sweet chocolate note for a friends who is having a hard day. You simply can’t go wrong with these happy little wraps!
– chocolate miniatures — the letter wraps are sized to fit just perfectly over Hershey’s miniature chocolates
– printable letter wraps — pink, orange, chartreuse, teal, chartreuse
– glue dots or double-sided tape or tape
– optional: printable cards for messages
– The letter wraps can be printed at home, of course, however, the color may be better from a copy shop.
– Each color set has 40 pages — all letters, numbers and a few punctuation marks. Printing them all gets a bit spendy. To save time, money and paper, take a few moments to plan out a phrase or two and the colors you’d like and print only those.
To wrap the chocolates, we found it easiest to center the wrap on the front of the chocolate first.
Then wrap the flaps around to the backside, gently pressing the paper to form around the bar.
Add a glue dot (or double-sided tape) to the inner flap.
Fold the other flap onto the glue dot. If you’re using regular tape, add it here.
Done and done.
Wrap up the rest of the phrase and toss in a treat bag for your Valentine — they can solve what the little bag of letters spells out, like little love puzzle? Or, if you want to SHOW the message to your loves, use the printable card, and use glue dots or double-sided tape or regular tape rolls to hold the chocolates in place on the card (download link above).
