Candy Bar Card

Yesterday I promised I would turn my card idea into a favor...and with a few tweaks, this is what I came up with:

Pull the ribbons apart to reveal a candy bar and message:

Click here to get a simple template. You can start with your favorite Hershey-sized candy bar. I folded and taped the 2 end flaps of the candy bar upwards (to keep it out of the way of the sliding parts):

Below is a picture of the 3 pieces...the main piece and 2 sliding pieces. Cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Apply double stick tape to the 2 ends of the main piece...and to one edge of each of the sliding pieces:

Insert your candy bar into the main piece and tape down one side as shown:

Tape down the 2 sliding pieces, as shown above.

Slide the 2 blue pieces over the candy bar, and push all the way to the left.

Remove the double stick tape and adhere the right flap to the candy bar.

Move the 2 sliding pieces to the center of the bar and decorate. Pretty simple!! While I was at it, I made one for graduation:

It was so warm today, I had to keep sticking my chocolate back into the refrigerator because it kept melting...is summer already on its way?

Ok, I love, love, love this.
So very cute.
HAve a question though.
Is the top side of the candy bar supposed to show, it has nothing covering it or should the entire candy bar be covered?

Also, when you said to remove the double sided tape...
Which part do you remove it from????

I love this though, just have to make one.
