Easter is upon us again and I wanted to make sure I came up with an amazing new Easter printable for you. Brighten up your treat baskets and sweet gifts in this fun watercolour design packaging. I have made you not one, but three printable Easter treat ideas here! Hooray!
You can use the 10 chocolate wrapper designs for mini chocolates. There are also folding favour boxes, one in a pink/purple watercolour Easter egg design and the other in a blue and green design. Lastly, you can package up your own candy and chocolates into bags, adding your special Easter printable bag toppers. These come in four different designs.
It's a fairly simple process (my favourite kind!). Check out the video below or keep scrolling for photos and instructions.
Please note that this printable comes as a zipped folder. I recommend downloading and printing from a computer as it is a much easier process. However, you can try the links I've provided on my FAQ page detailing how to download to other devices.
SUPPLIES FOR MINI CHOCOLATE WRAPPERS
There are 10 mini chocolate wrappers. These will fit Hershey's miniature chocolates. However, it is difficult to get these where I live in Western Australia. So I have made these wrappers a little bit longer to be able to fit a snack-size Mars Bar. If you are using these for Hershey's chocolates, you may need to trim the wrappers down a little.
Previously I wrote a blog post on how I wrapped 43g Hersey's chocolate bars in foil for my printable wrappers. I used the same process to wrap the smaller Mars Bars. To see how I wrapped those chocolate bars in foil you can read my post, Chocolate Bar Wrapper DIY + Printable.
I printed the chocolate wrappers on smooth 160 gsm paper. Then I cut each chocolate wrapper out. A pair of scissors will do just fine however if you have a paper trimmer, you may find this a little quicker. Wrap a paper wrapper around each bar, securing with double-sided tape.
SUPPLIES FOR TREAT FAVOUR BOXES
I printed my treat box templates onto a smooth 200 gsm paper. I found this thickness to be fairly good in making the box stable but also not too thick that it was difficult to fold. Once you have printed your two Easter treat box templates, cut with a pair of scissors.
Fold on all of the fold lines. Once you have done this, it is easy enough to fold the box into place to see where you need to glue. You will find the video above, as well as the image below, gives you a better idea on which of the four folds to apply glue to. Once you have applied the glue, fold the box into place, secure and add your special sweet Easter treats.
SUPPLIES FOR EASTER BAG TOPPERS
I printed these on smooth 160 gsm paper. Once you have cut out your bag toppers (scissors or a paper trimmer will do the trick), you will need to fold them. For a cleaner fold, use something to score them. If you don't have a paper scorer then something like a button or pop stick will work. Simply run the scorer along the folded edge.
Staple the paper toppers to your bags. I used cello bags from Kmart. I found these a little thin which were a slightly fiddly to work with when it came to heavier treats. They worked okay however if you have access to something thicker like a ziplock bag, they would be a better option. I trimmed the top of my cello bags as they were too long. If your bags are a little narrower, you could trim the end of the bag toppers.
And there you have it, so easy! I hope you enjoy this fun Easter printable treat idea. They're such an easy way to add a personal touch to your Easter baskets and gifting. Comment below, I'd love to know your favourite way of adding that personal touch for your friends and family at Easter.
