Hi.
I am having the worst luck with my meager photoshop skills... I am trying to make a chocolate bar wrapper for favors. We were married in Vegas on 07/07/07 but are having a family wedding/reception September 22. I can't get anything to work in photoshop.
Does anyone want to donate some mad skills? I am trying to get the sign to say "MARRIED in" instead of "Welcome to" and working on what I want to write as the date or whatnot in the top right corner... probably. This leads to how to fill the whole wrapper.
Any suggestions?? These are the templates/ photos i have so far...

And this is the inspiration pic... Sorry, I don't have the website... <br>

That's a great idea! I'm sorry I don't have any Photoshop skills to lend you. But super-cute idea, and congrats!

Just added the "in" for you.

I use paint shop pro 6.

I took spray paint and white, in a circle brush. Sprayed thick circle over the original letters.

then I used Arial Black BOLD and pasted each letter, using size 24, but you have to judge the letter size according to the picture.

What are the dimensions of your final wrapper?  

I have an idea, but I don't want to use the http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j104/scarsaresexy/favorbar2.jpg image.  It's too pixelated to print lovely for ya.

Here's a different spin on it... Vegas at night...woohoo! Smiley  I have a few other ideas, but I think you're getting bombarded with offers, huh?

I was thinking... if you really want something on the bottom (back) of your wrapper, you could mock up an ingredient list from an actual Hershey's bar but with silly stuff like 777 grams of Love, 100% daily intake, 88 grams of Fun, etc. Cheesy  Wouldn't that be cute?!  If you want to do that, you can get the actual list online & then edit it up!  Funnn!

I'm not sure what the "feel" of your wedding/reception is/was though.  If you didn't want to go the fun & silly route, you could include the names of your wedding party or a poem about yourself.  I think it would be totally cool if you wanted to leave the back of the bar blank too, though.

If you like this one at all, lemme know and I can send you the Photoshop file for you to edit/print from/better quality. Smiley  http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l156/sweets4ever48/scarsaresexy1.jpg
