You Will Need:
- A vintage comic book with mail order ads
- Chocolate bar w/ foil
- Buttons (optional)
- White glue for adhering buttons
- Double sided tape
- Glue stick
- Hole punch
- A color printer
- Paper for printing guests’ names
- Cardstock for ‘Thank-You’ tag
Step 1. Leaf through your comic book and find a page with mail order ads.
Step 2. Scan the page, and size it to fit your chocolate bar. (Caramilk wrappers are 4″ x 5.5″). Print. I used regular printer paper and an inkjet printer.
Remove outer wrapping from your candy bar.
Step 3. Wrap comic book page around the candy bar. I used double sided table to adhere the wrapper.
Step 4. Type your guests’ names, and table numbers in a font that you like and print. Cut with pinking shears to fit the width of chocolate bar. Adhere with glue stick.
Step 5. Cut cardstock with pinking shears for ‘Thank-You’ tags. My tags were 2″ x 3″. Print another comic book page, and cut out an ad to adhere to your gift tag.
Step 6. Glue ad to tag with glue stick. Fold and use a hole punch to make a hole. In your best handwriting, write ‘Thank You’ inside the gift tag. Include your names and wedding date.
Step 7. Put ribbon through hole and tie to candy bar. Glue buttons to candy bar. (This is entirely optional, but I think the buttons dress it up a bit.)
Step 8. Display your candy bars at reception entrance. Watch guests oohh and ahh over your clever DIY wedding favors
