Party favor bags

For the kid’s birthday party I wanted to make some nice party favors. Usually we do a piñata, but I have grown tired of all the candy and being beaten by kids once a year.

In comes the party favor bag filled with Bubbles, Note book, Pencil, Headband for girls, 3D Puzzle for boys, Lollipop and Beanie Bands.

Here is how I made the “Lollipop head bands”. I used felt that I cut thin strips of and stretched a bit then folded them in two. I rolled them up together and glued them flat to a piece of felt and cut out around them. Using and extra piece of felt, I glued them onto headbands. I also made a few smaller ones for hair ties. Same way as before, I just didn’t fold the felt before rolling them up.


To decorate the bags I made some pinwheels using this tutorial found at Ohdeedoh. And I made my own bubble wraps using Publisher. I also made tags for the bags saying “Thanks for making our party so sweet”. Now I just have to get them all assembled.
