Step 1: Create a New Design in Canva

First, head over to and either log in or create a new account for free. Once you're logged in, click on "Create a design" in the top-left corner and select "Custom dimensions." Set the page size to 8.5 by 11 inches and click "Create design." Next, go to "Elements" and choose the square shape from "lines and shapes." Add the square shape to your page and follow the measurements provided in the video tutorial to create labels.

Step 2: Customize the Labels

Now it's time to let your creativity shine! Choose a background color or pattern that suits the theme of your party or event. Add text to your candy wrappers, such as your child's name, the event name, or a playful message. Feel free to personalize the font, size, and color to match your theme. You can also upload and incorporate images or clipart to further enhance your design.

Step 3: Save and Download Your Design

Once you're satisfied with your custom label design, click the "Download" button in the top-right corner of the page. For the best printing quality, select the "PDF Print" file format.

Step 4: Print and Cut Out Your Wrappers

To achieve the best results, print your candy wrappers on glossy photo or brochure paper. Once printed, use scissors or a paper trimmer to cut out the wrappers along the designated lines.


Step 5: Wrap Your Candy Wrappers

Now it's time to assemble your custom party favors! Lay your candy wrapper face down and place the Skittles candy bag on top of it. Fold over the left and right flaps of the custom wrapper and use double-sided tape or a hot glue gun to attach the right side to the left. Finally, seal the sides closed.

Optional Step: Trim the Edges For an added touch, you can use pinking Zig Zag Scissors  to trim the side edges of your candy wrappers. This step is optional but can give your favors a decorative and unique look.
