I discovered the fun of making chocolate candy bar cards for special people in my life back in my college days.
I'm not about to admit how long ago that was, so don't even ask! ☺️ But some ideas are pretty timeless, and I think spoiling someone with a chocolate creative gift is one of those lovely ideas that never goes out of fashion.
It didn't matter who I wanted to bless - a roommate, a boyfriend, a teacher that had been a great help, or even someone who seemed to be having a difficult time. Chocolate candy bar cards were a great yet inexpensive way for a "poor college student" to show their gratitude, friendship, encouragement, or affection.
All these years later, I still indulge in a bit of candy bar card making
for the special people in my life. These sweet creative treats never
fail to make someone's day and bring a smile!
Let me show you an example of what kind of candy bar card ideas I'm referring to by sharing one similar to one I made years ago. You can come up with some witty ideas of your own and share them with me and the rest of my visitors by using the form at the bottom of the page.
Creating a unique gift for someone in your life is so easy. First of all, you need to stop at the candy aisle of your local store. That is a real hardship, I’m sure. 😉
Brand name chocolate candy is ideal for chocolate candy bar cards. As you look over the selection, think of how you could use the brand name in a sentence. You may have to black out a letter or two in some cases.
You can purchase your favorite chocolate candy bars at your local grocery store or Walmart, or wherever you can get the best price. If you don't want to leave the house, just order candy bars online and have them delivered.
This short and simple candy bar card is similar to one I made for my sweetheart in college. He also happens to be my husband. 🥰
Of course, the sentiment on a chocolate candy bar card usually sounds a bit silly. That's half the fun! Don’t be shy. The person you choose to give a card like this to will love it, I promise!
Creative folks have shared with me on my old chocolate website some really amazing and imaginative ideas for long and elaborate candy bar cards they made for a variety of occasions. I'm going to be adding them below. You're going to love them!
The following step-by-step instructions and practical tips will make your task easier if this is your first time dabbling in candy bar card creations.
6. Once you know exactly where you plan to put everything on your poster, you can begin writing your message with markers or texters (that's what we call them here in Australia 😉).
7. Use tape or hot glue to secure your candy bars in place. The candy bars will probably be heavier than you expected when thinking about your layout, so it's a good idea to place them as balanced as possible across the page.
8. If you want to jazz up your card or 'prettify' it a bit more, you can get fancy or stylish with paper lace doilies, construction paper, stickers, ribbon, etc.
You are only limited by your imagination!
