If you are a Mickey or Minnie Mouse fan, then you are going to have to make these because they are so much fun, so easy and so stinkin' easy to make! Seriously I love how these turned out! I wanted to come up with an idea that you didn't need to have an electronic cutter to make. So I came up with these fun Mickey and Minnie candy bars. Seriously ANYONE can make these!!
This is how I made them:
I took some candy bars, black and red card stock and pink polka dot paper.
For the big candy bars, I cut the black paper 5 1/2 inches by 6 inches. I then wrapped the paper around it and taped it in the back.
Then I added the red and pink polka dot paper. I cut those 2 1/2 by 6 inches and then wrapped them around and taped them.
Using a hole punch, I cut out the circles for the ears and buttons on Mickey.
I then glued the ears, bows and buttons on with a glue gun (because it's quicker). Aren't they so much fun? I made these for my little girl's class. There are 4 girls and 2 boys in her class.
I also thought that the little miniature candy bars would be awesome too (and they are!). These are great if your child has a bigger class and you don't want to spend as much money. I just used the candy bars that you get 8 for a $1. I wrapped them with black card stock that I cut to be 2 3/4 inches by 3 inches. The red and pink polka dot paper I cut to be 1 1/2 inches by 3 inches.
I also cut out some circles and bows and glued them on. Aren't they so cute? I love the little miniature ones!
Of course I had to come up with some fun sayings for the Valentines, so I made several different printables for them.
For the bigger candy bars, I glued the saying onto the back of the candy bar.
And for the little ones I just glued them right onto the printable. I cannot wait to give these out to my little girl's class!
These also would make great party favors too. So I made up a printable for Minnie Mouse but you could also make up the Mickey ones too and they would make great party favors too!
You can get the printable here.
