Birthday Bar 3D Idea

Hi everyone! Today was my day over on the MarkerPop Blog and I presented our first 3D Thursday! My 3d project is super simple and perfect for birthday gifts for co-workers or neighbors. These would also work as party favors.


For the 3D part of my project, I just measured the candy and wrapped it with pretty patterned paper! It was so easy. In case you are wondering, this is a Hershey’s XL Dark Chocolate bar… Yummmm!! There was very little measuring and absolutely NO scoring for this one. Then I just added a pre-made sentiment & a strip of coordinating patterned paper.

The difficult part of my project was the coloring and paper piecing. I used this beautiful image from Gorjuss that comes in the Flying Above It All stamp set. I showed you this hair coloring video earlier this week, but it is what I used for my project so here it is again in case you missed it. It is a bit long, but I walk you through the entire hair coloring process from start to finish & even tell you a lot about my approach to hair coloring in general. Enjoy! 🙂

After coloring the hair, I also colored her skin (E00, E21), Dress (YG23, YG25), and Socks (YG23, Y25, BG45, BG49). Then I paper pieced the bird’s body with some coordinating patterned paper. I just popped up the image onto some 3d foam adhesives and then my little gift was complete!

  1. The little paper pieced bird and dress are so sweet! I hope the lucky person who receives the bar keeps the wrapper and enjoys your beautiful work! 🙂
