After this post, I hope you've dipped everything you could get your hands on in dark chocolate! Here are a few ideas for how to wrap them up into a pretty package for Father's Day.
Here's what you'll need:
- Wax paper
- Colored papers, vellums, card stocks
- Cello bags
- Twisty ties
To wrap the dipped caramels, cut a stack of wax paper rectangles, about 5" x 4". Place the caramel in the center, wrap and twist, salt water taffy style. Once they're all wrapped, place them in a cello bag and twist off with a twisty tie.
Fold up a few origami boxes to hold your bags of treats! I used this tutorial, but used a different paper size. It's not in English, but I found the photos easy enough to follow. If you have some trouble, check out my pics and quick instructions.
Start with a letter sized (8.5" x 11") sheet of paper. I used this great teal vellum. Trim .25" from the long side, making a 8.5" x 10.75" sheet. Fold in half, unfold, then fold the ends to the center crease, making 4 columns. Fold the other side into 3 rows, approximately 7 cm each. Fold two corners of one end in. Fold this flap towards the center. Fold this flap up, creating one side of the box. Fold the next two sides up and crease diagonally. Fold the last side of the box upwards, creasing the diagonal ends. Fit the ends into the pockets inside the box. Done!
Place your treat bags inside your new boxes. What I love most about these is there's a little pocket on the outside for a gift card!
Fold up a box for each of your treats. Impress your dad on Father's Day with his handmade (and delicious) gifts! Have a wonderful weekend!
