Hershey Santa, Elves & Grinch Bars

So I have been searching Hershey Santa Bars like crazy -- and I have found printables and only a few links to these handcrafted items. Yes, I was frustrated. With one week until Christmas vending events, I needed to know specs now. So I came across the whimsy wraps website. So incase that this link too disappears, I will post my specs for you, based on the whimsy wraps. And yeah, if you don't want to craft these yourself, buy some from them.

Here are my measurements:
  1. Wrapper: 5.5 x 5.25
  2. Santa's write coat trim: 2x3 1/2, if you are using a edge punch on both sides; 1 1/2 if you want it straight, no punching
  3. Belt: 5.25 x 1 inch
  4. Buckle: 1 3/4
  5. Buckle interior: 1 inch on all sides
Anyhow, this took some tweaking, but here is the glittered up version for my kids' Christmas stockings:

I used that ultra thick American Crafts card stock, but it was difficult to cut to size (needed my heavy-duty guillotine trimmer). Go out and get some Recollections glitter paper -- much easier to use!

And these are the bars for my vending events: The Grinch with Santa hat )I tried to make him look mean, but he looks happy), Satna's Elves, and Santa, all glittered up.
