Making a candy bar favor that is designed especially for your favourite person is a certain way to impress. These little gifts are easy to make. You may need to do some stealthy 'research' first to find out what kind of chocolate bar your friend likes, then it's a simple matter of going to the shops to buy a chocolate bar, then you are probably going to be all set to make your favor. More instructions follow below.

Susan, I enjoy surfing your website because your website is easy to read.
I like everything about it especially the ideas which are simply set out but effective, the product reviews and money saving tips. I find your site very helpful.
In South Africa when on a limited budget, overseas magazines are out of reach and I'm always looking for new ideas as I run a non-profit craft class from our local church. I try to give my members something new each month. I've been able to use your ideas to fill those months when I'm at a loss what to do. Also for my personal use - I can show off these great ideas to friends and family. I'm one of those people that needs inspiration. Once I get the general idea I can run with it, but I need a jog.
Thank you for also for sending out Paper Twists.

Here's what to do to make a pouch for the chocolate bar:

Now your Candy Bar Favor is complete!
But what if you want to give a thicker, bigger chocolate as a gift? No problem! All you need to is not choose a bar that is longer than the width of your cardstock, plus allowing a few centimetres for the bottom to be joined and the top to have a punched shape to thread your ribbon through.
Here I chose a Cadbury bar and selected a piece of plain A4 cardstock to make the slider part. I thought Elegant Eggplant went very well with the Cadbury purple
I used my Simply Scored Board (available from Stampin' Up! through my SusanSalutations online store) to add a little tab on one end of my cardstock, then I laid my chocolate bar along this line and scored another one on the other side of it, then turned my chocolate on its side and scored along the bar, then laid it flat and scored again, then stood it on its edge and scored again. I cut my A4 cardstock at the last scored line. You are effectively making a shallow box for your candy bar.
So now you have the key to make a candy bar favor, from the tiniest to pretty good-sized, for birthdays or Christmas or even special occasions like weddings. Imagine the sleeve being made out of vellum and embossed! Or glitter paper! Yes! Give one for a friend who invites you over for dinner, or just to say thank you to someone who did something lovely for you.
If you make a candy bar favor, I would love to see how you decorated it. Would you leave me a comment below and upload a picture of your own work?
