Queen of My Craftroom - Back to School Blog Hop

This is my first blog hop and I am so excited to be participating. If you came across my blog and would like to start at the beginning go to Queen of My Craftroom.
For today we are making Back to School wrapped candy bars.
The paper was cut at 5.5 X 7.25 inches for a 1.55 ounce Hershey Chocolate Bar.
I used my printer and copy paper to make my own designer paper, ATG tape and a Fiskars Paper Crimper. Most card stock is to thick to use and just won't fold tight enough around your candy.
The video will tell you all the dimensions and other products that I used to make the second wrapped candy bar.


(the instuctions for the yellow wrapped bar and the supplies I used are on the video)
