Tombstone Candy Bar Wrapper

Before you start:

We printed ours on standard white cardstock.  I can’t say enough how invaluable this stuff is to have around.

The materials:

  • Printable (see link above)
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Ruler or other sturdy straight edge

The steps:

  1. Print the pdf file (a color printer will work best)
  2. Carefully cut out each tombstone template.
  3. Lay a cut out face down.  While pressing the ruler down on the back of the cut out, pull one of the flaps which will create the back of the tombstone up and create a crease along the first black line.  Move the ruler over a bit and fold up again at the next black line.  This will create a triangle that will be the sides of the tombstone.  Repeat for the other side.
  4. Create a crease along the bottom of the tombstone to create the flap that will seal the back and bottom of the tombstone.
  5. Flip the cutout over and apply glue to the edge of one of the side flaps (about ½ inch wide).  Fold the other flap over and press to seal.
  6. Apply glue to the bottom flap and fold over.  Press to seal.
  7. Insert candy.
