Communion and Christening Candy Bar Wrappers

It's almost that time of year again! You know, where Every. Single. Weekend is completely booked with religious occasions such as communions. I myself have three weekend filled with them as of right now, so I know that I'm not alone in this.

I'm completely aware that in no time at all my girls too an eventually baby boy, will be making their First Holy Communion and I will have to plan and prepare a celebration for afterwards. Which brings me to the topic of this weeks post,  which happens to be in about candy bar favors for such occasions or more specifically Communion Candy bar wrappers. I have sold these in my Etsy shop for some time now, but a of recently I have been getting a lot of requests for different colors, patterns etc. So I added a few options for people to be able to see.

The front of the wrapper has room for customization such as name and date of the event. The back of the wrapper offers options to include Church name, time, date, parents names and the Godparents names. If other information would like to added I am able to do that as well. Here are a few of the newer options I added....

These can be used as a favor for just about any religious event. So far the most popular ways they are used is Christenings and communions. A picture of the child is added and can be in black and white or color. Most if not all patterns can be colored to whatever you would like and if you do not see the pattern that you are looking for chances are I have in somewhere, so please if you don't see if just ask me!

They print out on a standard sheet of 8-1/2x11 sheet of paper and come two wrappers per sheet. They can be printed at home or uploaded to a local print shop. Using the basic paper option (24lb) they cost as little as $0.79 per sheet which brings the cost of the wrapper to approx $0.30 per wrapper.

They wrap around a standard Hershey's Bar, which  can be purchased at about $0.50 each. making the cost of the favor very feasible if you are working with a budget. And seriously folks, wouldn't you be happier with a bar of yummy chocolate, than some of the favors I see floating about in the Internets, I know for me I do not need another crystal cut oval picture frame or a candy dish to shove into the closet of "Never Gonna Use" which also is slang for right in the trash can, I'm  just being honest! It's just something to consider!

Either way I hope you enjoy and thank you for stopping by! If you have any questions, you can leave them in the comments section of contact me through my Etsy Shop {{HERE}}

Thanks and keep creating!
