Miniature Hershey Bar Craft

You will need some pretzel bags, scrapbook paper, tape, ribbon and some Hershey's Miniatures.

You could also use Hershey Nuggets.

The first step is to use a wrapper as a pattern to cut the scrapbook paper.

Once you have the scrapbook paper cut to the right size - just wrap the paper around the miniature candy bar and secure with a small piece of tape. You could also use wrapping paper if you don't have any scrapbook paper.

Each pretzel bag fits six candy bars - you need to leave room at the top for a coordinating ribbon.

This is a great way to use up wrapping paper or scrapbook paper scraps.

Make the pretzel bags into little patterns. You could also add a little tag at the top of the bag.

I love the polk dot ribbon at the top of this bag - it adds an extra layer of pattern.

This is an easy project that you can use for party favors or a craft project that kids could make for Mother's Day or a teacher gift. You can also make them in different holiday themes and colors. Scrapbook and wrapping paper colors and themes are endless!

I plan on using these candy bar bags as hostess and thank you gifts.
