Subject: I need mini Hershey candy wrap for cancer awareness
Our Women's Ministry is having an evening in Oct. to raise awareness of breast cancer. Our theme: The Power of Pink and Chocolate. We will decorate with those colors. We will have dessert only for food. One thing we'll do is use a chocolate fountain and make some pink lemonade and pink and choc desserts.
My request is for a template for a mini Hershey candy wrap, We could print it on brown paper and glue on the breast cancer awareness ribbon. A friend has a paper punch with that design. Thanks for any help you may have.

I saw some wrapping paper with the breast cancer awareness symbol on it and I know Michael's craft store also had in the scrapbook area. I just cut to the width I want and then use double-side tape to secure. It's quick and easy! Have fun!

Happily Retired (me too!) - I know this isn't what you asked for (sorry can't help with that) but what about using a Hershey's Nugget instead? Still goes with your theme "The Power of Pink and Chocolate" (great theme by the way). I love making both the little paper purse candy favors and the giftbag-like holders for all occasions. The bag style is quick & easy. If your friend has a ribbon punch, this project would be perfect if you don't mind cutting strips of cardstock (does she have a paper cutter too?). I was working on some Halloween nuggets this morning. While I was at it, I made a pink one to try to show you what I mean. I don't know the size of your group but I kept it very simple which I had to do with the Halloween favors too.
Cut cardstock into 5" long x 1-1/2" wide strips. Score at 2" and 3" and then fold on the score lines. Use corner-rounder punch on the corners if desired. Add ribbon, staple and insert nugget candy. (By the way, the above size fits the Hershey Nugget but not the Hershey Miniature.)

I don't have a ribbon punch or stamp so just printed out a ribbon template on darker pink paper, cut it out and taped it on the front so you'd see what I meant. I always top off the favors by stapling or tying on a piece of ribbon (grosgrain 3/8" works best but I didn't have any pink) but with the ribbon embellishment you might think that's too much - you could just glue or staple the top shut without the added ribbon. Here's a picture showing the Halloween favor - you can see I used a rubber stamp on it. To be honest, when I read your post this morning I was thinking you said your friend had a ribbon stamp, not a punch - so much for my mind but that's why I took the pic of the two together! Using a rubber stamp is REALLY quick. I ran the sides of the "bag" down the stamp pad just to add a little border. It's not necessary to round the corners if you don't have the punch.

If you see pink M&M's, I've also seen those put in little plastic craft bags with a poem on a topper. And Terrie some years ago put them in cone-shaped bags but that would take a lot of M&M's for a large group. Here's a picture link from the archives -

Not chocolate, but last year did you see the great topper Lori Jean made for Strawberry Mix Drink? I loved this idea.
