Yesterday I showed you how to make a Snowman that holds a snack size Hershey Bar. You can see that post here. Today I’m sharing three different covers for full size Hershey Bars: a snowman, a reindeer, and a penguin. These make terrific stocking stuffers, or small last minute gifts. And again, there’s no stamping. The Big Shot makes these super quick and easy (the magic words.) The reindeer antlers are made from the leaf die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, and the Penguin is made from the Layering Circles, Layering Ovals, and Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies.

 

Here’s what I made:
