Sweet Gifts

Here's a quick and easy fun gift idea for kids or secret santas... 

The bars were covered with B&T papers... for these sized bars, the paper was trimmed to 7x8.5.  Placing the paper landscape, the paper was scored at 2, 2.25, 5.75 and 6. The tag is 3x6 and then trim the edges of the tag.

The poem was printed on regular paper, them trimmed to fit the tag.

Happy Holidays!!!
