Stampin’ Pretty Pals 3-D Blog Hop

  Stampin up holiday mini catalog warmest of wishes candy bar wrap
Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals August Blog Hop.  The Pals plan to dazzle you from stop to stop with 3-D ideas that you can create and share.  For a complete list and links of Pals hoppers, please scroll down!

SNEAK PEEK ALERT!  Notice a new look for the Owl?  It’s part of the Warmest Wishes stamp set, a new hostess stamp option in the Holiday Mini Catalog (available Sept. 1).  I’ll be sharing lots more holiday sneek peeks throughout August . . . including samples using our new Simply Scored Scoring Tool (also available Sept. 1)! 

Stampin up holiday mini catalog owl punch What fun it was to dress up a candy bar for Halloween in this snappy 3-D wrap!  Susan Dyas, my fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, shared this “sweet” idea with me at our Convention this past July.  I immediately thought of Halloween.  Visit Susan’s blog for complete details and more creative ideas.


  • To create candy bar wrap, cut card stock to 2 3/4″ x 10 1/4″ (a long skinny piece).
  • Score at 5″ and 5 1/4″.  Flip 90 degrees and score 1/4″ on both the long sides.  SO easy with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.
  • I used my Paper Snips to cut a tiny tab at the center of the 1/4″ section, each side.  This is ultimately the base of the candy bar.  Cutting this tab (on both sides) makes assembly easier.
  • Sticky Strip is THE best way to keep 3-D projects together.

  3. I love the owl! I’m so in love with my owl from saleabration, now I want this one. Of course I’m having a party next week, now I’ll need to have another this fall also. Can’t pass up on the owl. Love the candy bar idea. Am definitely going to give this one a try.

  4. Great adaptation! What is more perfect for Halloween than a candy wrapper! And the style of the wrapper is a blank canvas for just about anything! How about white chocolate for a wedding!? 😉


  5. Soooo cute. I love Halloween, so I’m hooked by everything spooky and cutesie for that time of the year. And then there’s candy underneath. Woo Hoo!

  6. Pretty! This is perfect for the Halloween, bet the kids would love this. The owl looks really cute. I remember I’ve made such last year but it was a hunted house. This would be a great idea to try.
