Speed Tips:

Once you’ve practiced with a few chocolate bars, the following tips might help speed the process:

  • Foil wrap all your chocolate bars first (steps 1-4) then apply all your wrappers (steps 5-7).
  • Apply glue to 4-5 wrappers at a time. Lay the wrappers on top of each other, offset with just the glue area of each wrapper showing. Apply glue to all the wrappers at once as you carefully hold the stack in place.
  • You can eliminate the tape in step 1 by simply folding in the ends of the plastic wrapper and laying the bar face down on the foil sheet.
  • Gather some friends to give you a hand – you may discover some amazing DIY crafting talent. Chocolate is a great motivator!
Other Tips:
  • The tighter the wrap, the better the look.
  • Don’t worry about a few wrinkles when wrapping the foil sheets — the printed wrapper covers most of them.
  • Avoid using liquid glue. Not only will it take too long to dry, it’s messy and will result in ridges/puckering along the sealed edge.
  • If you will be writing on your wrappers, use a good-quality fine-tipped ink pen (such as a thin Sharpie) and allow the ink to dry thoroughly before attempting to wrap your chocolate bars (overnight is best). Test your pen on an extra or unseen area of a wrapper before beginning to ensure it won't rub off.
