Christmas Chocolate Bars

I have decorated the large Hershey bars in the past for the holidays, but have updated them a bit using different tools.  

Some simple steps to decorating them.  First the wrappers measure 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Once they are all cut I use a variety of punches to create the design. The Santa buttons are the 1/2" Circle, the band around the bar measures 1" x 5 1/2" and the square can be made using either your Square Framelits or punches.  If using punches I first punch the smaller square and then punch the larger square around that.  If using Framelits you can layer both together.

The reindeer antlers were cut using the Tree Builder Punch, his eyes and nose are the 3/4" Circle punch, and under his antlers I punched using my 2 3/8 Scallop Circle Punch and cut it in half.

The Snowman also uses the 3/4" Circle punch for the eyes, the 1/2" Circle Punch for the buttons, and the tip of the Tree Punch was used for the nose.  His hat was cut using a Square Framelit and I just hand cut the smaller piece around the brim of the hat.

I also added the "Let It Snow" from the Snow Place Stamp Set to my Snowman, and the ho!ho!ho! on the Santa bar is from a retired set.

Right now I have been so but getting things ready for an event this Sunday so I will try to come back later to post the supplies used.
