Here’s a super easy DIY that we did on the favor bags for Ramona’s zoo party. We just grabbed standard sized brown lunch sacks (which are currently at the forefront of hipster branding btw) and printed directly on them. (We aren’t quite hipster enough to stamp them, so the printer route worked best for us.)
First tape the top and the fold of the bag, so the printer can pull the bag without jamming up. Masking tape or frog tape work perfectly since they peel off easily without ripping.
Not the sexiest picture ever, but it’s to illustrate a very important step. We lined up the bag with our printer’s specification. Printed them one at a time since it is easier to avoid jams and offset printing on that way.
The elephant you will recognize from the invitation. It’s like we planned it or something. Peel the tape off…
We mixed in our threshold image of Ramona from the street art as a favor bag too. I love that the bags are simple with a cute image on them. They aren’t loud or over the top. Plus they stand up on their own. Bonus.
The printing-on-a-lunch-sack technique works for any party even if the elephant doesn’t. You could totally pull off something like this for a baby shower or wedding. Threshold image of the couple? Did I just plan my vow renewal? Maybe.
In case you’re looking for some ideas on what to stuff in your birthday party favor bag. I used these goodies.
We also made these tattoos. They wouldn’t cut out right on the Silhouette, but still an awesome addition to the favor bags. Did you know you could buy temporary tattoo paper and print your own?! Incredible.
