What's a party without balloons and streamers? The LoveToKnow website publishes two free professionally designed candy bar wrapper templates. One is festooned with celebratory balloons and the other with streamers and confetti. Both come with clear assembly instructions.

Download the template, customize it, and print out one template per sheet of paper. The template is sized for candy bars that measure approximately 5 inches by 2.25 inches, but it can be trimmed down for smaller candy bars.

The LoveToKnow templates are compatible with most computers.
