Party Favor Bags are so much fun to make, and they are super easy to decorate when you use the Cricut. By using the Cricut, you can create Party Favor Bags in any color or theme that you can dream of.
This sweet bag full of candy bars would be a wonderful favor for a Koala Birthday Party or for Valentine’s Day. Imagine the look on the kids’ faces when they saw all that candy…..and imagine the looks on the Mom’s faces when they saw all that SUGAR!
Here is how I created this “SWEET” party favor.
Supplies for Making Party Favor Bags
1. Sealable bag – I used a resealable bag from Clear Bags. They have them in tons of different sizes. They have a header and hang tab hole, which I covered. You can also purchase similar bags on Ebay, and Stampin’ Up has treat bags as well. The size I used was pretty big, but most Party Favor Bags are much smaller. You can also use a Zip Loc bag from the grocery store.
Here is a quick tip. If you put the bag opening on the bottom, you can get the candy without destroying the decorations. That makes it reusable, so that you can pass along a treat to someone else.
2. Paper for Making a Header – I used two coordinating patterned papers from Stampin’ Up, but you can use any brand or solid cardstock.
3. Decorations – You need to decorate your Party Favor Bags! This is the fun part. The decorations can include ribbons, buttons, rhinestones, stickers, die cuts, rubberstamping, drawing, flowers, leaves, punches, or other thing you find at the craft store. This is a fun project that kids can help with!
I have a packed craft room full of goodies for decorating. I also have a Cricut which I used for the Koala Bear. The Koala Bear is on the Create A Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge. She is made from layers of black, gray, white, and pink cardstock. I added Fruit Punch Stickles Glitter Glue to add a little bling. When using Stickles or other brands of adhesive glitter, make that the last thing you do, so that you can set it aside and let it dry.
I punched a border using a Martha Stewart punch, and I added a piece of seam binding ribbon from Stampin’ Up.
Headers for Party Favor Bags can be any size. It all depends on the size of your bags and the size of your treats. Give it a try for your next party. Kids will love them!
