Halloween Candy Wraps

A couple of years ago, I went crazy and made a whole bunch of Halloween candy wraps.

I think they make great gifts for neighbors and teachers and friends this time of year, so I thought I'd share how to make them with my Flipzles fans.

Vampire with Cape

Open the cape to see the message - "I hope your Halloween doesn't Bite"

I used black felt to make his bat-wing cape and glued googly eyes on top of the printed paper that is wrapped around a box of Reese's Pieces.

A BOO "Mint" just for you!

Needed: One size fits all stretchy gloves, ribbon, white felt, junior mints and printable ghost face (or make your own).

Large candy bar Witches with glove hats

Needed: Large candy bars, stretchy gloves, ribbon, and printable witch face.

I also made 3 smaller size gum or kit kat bar wrappers.  Simply print, but and wrap to add a little Halloween fun to the treats you give out.

Here are the other wraps -

Flipzles One Year Anniversary Giveaway!

One year ago today I officially launched Flipzles.  My garage was packed full of boxes and boxes of puzzles that had just arrived and I was nervous and excited about my new adventure. I have learned a lot, cried a little, struggled and questioned, cheered and triumphed, sketched, painted and photographed erased and started again.  
I have come a long way, but still have so very far to go.

Throughout this first year Flipzles have been sold in 105 stores and online sites and over 3,800 puzzles have sold.
I know that may not seem like much, but for a stay at home mom of 4 who is shipping from home herself, I am quite happy with my first year. Thanks for your support!
