Candy Bar Slider Treat for Halloween

Posted by on October 14, 2013 in Halloween, treat holder | 2 comments

This is such an easy and fun way to a create candy bar slider treat for Halloween using the “Witches’ Brew” Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog and our Chevron Ribbon.  The designer series paper measures 6 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and you can get 3 pieces from a 12″ x 12″ sheet of paper.  Sticky Strip is adhered to one long side and one short side on the back of the designer series paper.  You wrap the paper around the candy bar glueing one long side to the other.  This will give you a tube with Sticky Strip on one end.  Close the end of the tube with the Sticky Strip and cut a slit at the open end.  The Chevron ribbon measures 21″ and goes all the way around the candy bar with the ends coming out through the slits at the top.  Tie a knot at the top and you’re ready to decorate :-)

This one uses the greeting from Halloween Bash which is stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  The stamped greeting is die-cut with the Labels Collection Framelits and paper-pierced with the coordinating piercing template.  The adorable (yes, he is adorable!) bat is from the Halloween Hello stamp set and is stamped in Black Stazon on Very Vanilla  and trimmed with scissors – something I like to refer to as “fussy” cutting 😉  The trick for smooth edges when trimming with scissors is to turn the paper as you’re cutting and try to leave a little border around the edges.  The bat and greeting are both popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This one involves no stamping at all – is that shameful?  The letters are die-cut with the “Typeset Alphabet” Bigz dies and Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered the letters and googly eyes with Glue Dots.

When you pull the ribbon, the candy bar slides out like this:

Maybe a picture is worth a thousand words but a video is priceless 😉  Here’s a video tutorial on how to create these cute little Halloween candy bar slider treats:

Our family likes to hand out treats that we like to eat so in our home, that means chocolate.  Lots, and lots of chocolate!  I think for the kids on our court, I’ll tuck in a dollar bill too for an added little surprise.  I hope you have time to create some of these cute candy bar slider treats for some of your special Halloween trick-or-treaters!

  1. Recently came across your site. Love everything. Since I’m late for Halloween (!) I am going to do this for Easter. I think the Sunday School children will love it. Thank you.

    • Thank you Fran :-) They are really fun to make and easy to change the size based on the candy bar. Have fun with them!
