1 – Go for a whimsical and personal appeal to your candy wraps with a fun printed sleeve as a personal touch. The how-to for this, courtesy of The Decorated Cookie, suggests printing names, lyrics, sayings, etc. on the paper sleeve in a variety of fonts and colors. You can probably imagine all the possibilities this easy tube packaging can offer!

And what a great example we found on The Sweetest Occasion (by guest blogger Jenny of Hank & Hunt), using a bright fuchsia and aqua combo. The fun tutorial shows how creative little touches—like cutting the ends into a fringe, and using pinking scissors to edge the tags—can add even more appeal to an already eye-catching favor!
