Instead of Make Fast Wrapped Candy Bar Halloween Treatholders, this post should’ve been called Halloween Treatholder Procrastinator Ideas! Yup, that’s me. Big time procrastinator, especially this year.
I KNOW what date Halloween is. Like, it pretty much is the same date every year right? 😋 So I don’t know why I’m a last minute crafter!
But maybe you’re in the same boat as me? So I thought I’d show you my super quick idea that looks like you took hours!
A bit of patterned paper, some coordinating ribbon, and a cool set of stamps and tags are all it takes for these little cuties. Did you notice the Trio of Tags bundle of stamps and dies in the Holiday Catalogue? In case you didn’t, take a peek.
Hallowe’en, Christmas and Valentines? Got ya covered! And I think we could even squeak out a birthday or two out of it too. And they are a dream to work with.
Let’s take a closer look and see how they came in handy here.
Make Fast Wrapped Candy Bar Halloween Treatholders
Only Two Steps
Can’t get much easier than that.
And seeing as black is a popular scary colour for Hallowe’en, I just used my Tuxedo Memento ink pad on Thick Whisper White. TIP: I used Thick cardstock so the tags are just a bit more durable.
So then once I cropped them, what else did I need?
Some patterned paper (like the Monster Bash DSP), my Tear & Tape and some ribbon.
Since I wanted my bar ends to stick out, I cut my DSP to 4 3/4″ x 6″. TIP: Just measure your own candy bar to see what size works best for you.
Once the bar was wrapped, it was simple to tie on some ribbon, threading it through the holes in the tag. And to get fancy, I had some basic rhinestones hanging around I had coloured with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend earlier.
For my other one, I coloured my Basic White baker’s twine with my Pumpkin Pie Stampin Blend for a touch of colour.
Wanna Step It Up?
If you’ve got ten more minutes, you can step these up just a teensy bit for a bit more ooomph! Here are two ways I did that.
- I coloured some Sparkle glimmer paper with alcohol and my Pumpkin Pie ink refill. TIP: You can see exactly how to do this with my short video. Then I ran the two little pumpkins through my die cutting machine and glued them over top.
Aren’t they adorable?
2. And for the second step up, I used my Pumpkin Pie Stampin Write marker to colour the “the” in the tag on a scrap of white paper. I fussy cut it and used a mini dimensional to layer it on top. I thought one more orange rhinestone was a fun touch to add too.

Time To Spare!
Thanks for jumping on to grab this idea. And you know, I think even if you procrastinate right up to October 31st, you can still craft up some basic tags like these.
And if you still have a bit of time? You might also like these super cute mini chocolate bar treatholders.
I’m pretty sure Christmas and Valentine’s will creep up on my too and I’ll be making tags in my jammies. I can guarantee I won’t have to make fast wrapped candy bar Halloween treatholders then, but you might like to see more of what a long time procrastinator can design in a flash!
