How To Create Additional Wrapper Layouts

Comments

There are four basic layouts available for each of our free printable designs. Each design includes a coordinating candy wrapper template, an invitation or card, a mintbox, and a mini wrapper. You can create a variety of additional layouts to suit your personal needs by modifying the size of the template you've chosen.

A graphics program is needed if you wish to acheive professional results. We've provided a chart below to guide you in modifying the designs as well as suggested printing paper and quick links to the supplies that are mentioned for each unique layout. The posted sizes are suggestions and can be changed to meet your needs.
