Step 1

Carefully remove the outside wrapper from a candy bar and trace it onto decorative paper. Cut out the new wrapper with regular scissors and tape it on the underside of the foil-wrapped bar.

Step 2

Use decorative or regular scissors to cut a rectangular label or packing tag to adhere to the top of the candy bar. Measure against the face of the bar to make sure it fits accurately.
