2 Adorable Wrappers to share!

As you know, I love to design candy bar wrappers using clipart from my favorite artists, but I also love it when I find them already designed...all I do is add the text!! These are from my friend, Trina Clark, at! I absolutely LOVE her work! I actually got to meet her once at a craft show & she placed an order from me! She & her hubby were so fun to talk with! Anyway...just thought I'd give you some more ideas on just how many ways you can use candy wrappers in your everyday life! I've said it before & I'll say it again...not many people are gonna turn down a candy bar, especially when it's personalized just for them! They are a fun, inexpensive way to say....anything! Thanks for stoppin' by!

A Fun Pool Party Wrapper!

Who wouldn't love being invited to a pool party? And it's even more inviting when it's wrapped around chocolate! LOL I made this cute "invitation" wrapper using Laurie Furnell's "Penguins in Paradise set which can be seen HERE! As I have said many times...she is my favorite artist at! I think it's a great idea to give out your invitations on a candy bar! They can eat the candy & tape the wrapper to the fridge for a great little reminder! Thanks for stopping by...more later!
