    Mini Bat Candy Bar Covers

    Posted by  ·  October 27, 2010

    Last year I had a download for a large bat candy bar cover. This year I  thought it would be great to have some mini bats.

    It might seem overwhelming to cut them all out, but if you have a Silhouette it makes quick work of this little project. I use a Mac so I cut them from a PDF. I think if you have a PC you cut from a JPG, so I have included both versions.

    Miniature Bat Candy Bar Greetings

    The Silhouette cut out the bats for me. I taped the ends of the candy bar so they don’t hang out. Print the greetings on orange card stock and cut out. Next add two googly eyes, fold the wings to the center and secure with double sided tape.

      I love this idea & am doing the mini candy bar bats & the ghost suckers for my sons kindergarten class. NOTE: The pic shows Hershey's snack size bars but the template link for the bat pattern is for Hershey's Miniatures (that comes in a variety pack w Mr Goodbar, etc). The link for the candy wraps is for the snack size bars, not the miniatures. So the 2 links really do not go together.

      So cute! I tend to give out a lot of candy so I think I'll make "momma" bats and soft colored "baby" bats too! ^^

      CJ, just click the links in the post to download the templates. I think I used a Times font and for the script-- noodle.

      Do you have a template for the wrapper you put around the candy bar? What font did you use?

      Thanks for the inspiration. I used the idea to wrap rice krispy treats for the little one's preschool party. You can see a pic of them here: I used the bat idea but drew my own template so it would be a little easier for my girl to cut out.

      I hand-cut 22 of these last night....after the first few, it wasn't so much fun (my hand was aching!) but they turned out soooo great! And my daughter was so excited to take them to school - thanks again! :)

      I used scalloped scissors for the toes it made it a lot easier when cutting out manually. We also made a note that said, "You are Bat-tastic!"

      ALACK!!! I do not have a silhouette I have the CRICUT.. can I somehow turn my cricut into a silhouette, because it seems to do all the things I wish my cricut would do.

      Wonderful! Thank you, wish I had a Silhouette....! But I definitely have to make at least a few of these, even if I do have to cut them by hand. :0)

      I absolutely love this! I am soooooo not crafty (but fervently wish that I was) but I am going to try thig tonight. At lunchtime, I left work, went to Hobby Lobby to buy supplies and have recruited my husband to help me make 22 of these for my daughter's Kindergarten Halloween party at school on Friday! Thanks for the inspiration :)

      I have a silhouette, but how do I import a graphic that is not from their library?

      Oh how fun are those! That would be such a treat to give to a little trick or treater.
