Craft Fair Goodies: Santa Hershey Bar’s

OK I am BURSTING with excitement to show you these. Not sure what it is, but I just find these things SOOOO CUTE!! I have been noodling over what I can do with these full-sized Hershey candy bars for a few weeks. I finally decided to deck them out in a Santa suit. I got lots of inspiration for these on the I cannot take credit. There are lots of great versions out there, but I pulled most of my inspiration from Wanda's creation on her blog. Thanks Wanda for sharing these, they are great!


Similar to the hot cocoa ones I did a few weeks back, these too are "sliders". When you untie the ribbon & pull...a candy bar comes out!


The ends are glued shut & I used a paper crimper tool to finish off the ends. I got that idea HERE from Dawn's video.

111609_03A few other things:

  • Red Cardstock = 6"x6" (scored @ 1/2", 3.25")
  • White Cardstock = 6" x 2.25", punch edges with SU! Scallop Border Punch
  • Black strip (Santa's Belt) is 3/4" wide
  • I cut the belt buckle using Paper Doll Dress Up (buckle for Pilgrim hat, then I just trimmed the belt part off) - set to Real Dial Size ON at 1 inch.
  • Black circles (buttons) are 1/2" circles.
  • I punched the hole for ribbon right through the top button with my Crop-a-Dile!
Thanks for checking these out! I hope I left enough info to help you make your own. If you follow Dawn's instructions - the dimensions are pretty good to get the basic concept of the slider down. I have LOTS more to show you this week...getting ready for my big fair this Saturday, EEK!

      Oh Gosh, I will say – mine is super old and I NEVER use it! I had to pull it out of the drawer, lol. I know Fiskars makes them – they are pretty cheap…under $20 I would say. Try Target, Walmart, AC Moore or Michaels.
