Let Santa say Thank You for being a good girl or good boy this year to your children with this personalizable Christmas candy bar wrapper. This wrapper is a great Christmas card for Santa to leave in your kids' stockings.
You guys know I love candy bar cards right? After all, I'm constantly making and sharing them with you here.
I think they are the best thing EVER. It's a fun way to give both a card and gift in one. After all, who doesn't like chocolate? And to know you have chocolate and share it? You're the best friend EVER.
But, today's candy bar card is a little different.
I thought it would be fun for Santa to leave the kids a gift in their stockings to say "thank you" for being good this year.
Wouldn't your kids love that?
I'm sharing two candy bar wrapper printables with you. One says "Thank you for being such a good GIRL this year! --Santa" and the other says "Thank you for being such a good BOY this year! --Santa".
This way you can make sure it's perfect for your little one.
The front of the bar is blank, so you can add your child's name to it so it's truly personalized from Santa.
Even though there's a lot of Christmas going on this bar, it's fun to add their names in special Christmas alphabets.
I used this Merry Christmas Alphabet on Austin's bar, the Christmas Stars Alphabet on Autumn's bar, and the Christmas Dots Alphabet on Addie's.
This way they are all custom and unique, but truly awesome.
If you are a pro at image manipulation software, then this bar and the png alphabets are super easy to use and create, so grab the printables below.
If you need a little help, I have put together a quick "How to" below the candy bar wrapper printable.
Star by going to Canva.com. If you don't have an account, go ahead and set one up. If you do, log in and go to the "Create a design" page.
From the "Create" page, select Letterhead as your design. This will bring up a working page that is 8-1/2 by 11 inches.
Once your new page is open, click on the "Upload your own images" button.
Find where you saved the wrappers above on your computer. Click on it and upload it to your work space.
Once you have it uploaded, click on the image and it will appear on top of your blank paper in the work space. Use the dots to drag the design so it fully fits the work space. This will make sure your candy bar wrapper is the proper size.
Now upload each of the letters of your name using the same method.
Select the first letter of the name and click on it. This will add it to your work space.
Line up the letter in the middle of the white space, between the logo and the "Thank you" greeting on the back.
You can resize each letter by dragging it up or down using the dots in the corner of the letter, just like you did for the candy bar printable graphic.
Canva has lines when you resize that pop up to help you get the right size and placement of each letter. But I did find it a little tricky to get them all straight for my OCD brain. You may need to play with them for a little bit to get it perfect.
Once your candy bar wrapper is personalized, click the "Download" button at the top. Canva will ask you how you want to save it. You can choose from JPG, PNG, or PDF file. Just choose whichever is easiest for you.
Canva will then prepare your bar and then ask you if you want to save it or not. Click the "Save as" button and then find where you want to save the candy bar wrapper.
Once it is saved, go to the wrapper and print it out. I love to use this photo paper so it's nice and shiny and beautiful when printed.
Wrap it around your candy bar and stick the bar inside your child's Christmas stocking.
Hopefully, they will remember that little treat next year and be just a little bit "better" in 2019.
