~Simple and QUICK Candy covers~

I had a few of you ask how my candy wrappers were made.
I feel silly posting because they are so simple.
But here we go!

Step #1 Cut a strip of 3" by about 9" or 10"
It really depends on how long you want your flap.
If you want to make an extra fancy one or one on each end.

Now fold your flap over. No real measurements here, I just placed
the M&M wrapped inside to make sure it fit is all.
Then fold a 3/4" crease in the middle and match up the other end
trimming where necessary.
It should look like this when your done.
Now you have a couple options, and I used both options.
I stuck a little strip of glue inside and placed the candy OR you can
staple the tip of the candy bag to the top of the flap (not where you will glue it down)
But right at the crease.
I did this one most and stapled the flower in as well.
Now you can play with these and get fancier.
With this one I made the flap and extra 1.5" and I used my Fiskars Border punch,
then I folded it up and glued it in place.
On this one, I left it 12" and folded DOWN, scalloped,
and glued making the inside a longer flap

Then on the folded flap I scalloped again.

Hope you have fun and make some of your own! I would LOVE to see them!
Have a beautiful Day
