Birthday Party Favor Bag Printable

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…

You’ve got yourself a pretty stylish birthday favor bag. You can download the file to print the favor bag in blue or pink.

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.

Animal masks / Slap bracelets / Animal stamps / Animal crackers
Animal print notebooks / Make-a-face animal stickers

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.

    this is a great idea! i never would have thought of printing directly on the bag!

  2. I love every single one of these ideas. I bought a stack of 2 lbs brown paper bags for party favor bags when B turned 1. Guess what… I still have and use that stack every single birthday. Of course I never tried printing on them directly. I love that idea… Are you too old for favor bags at your 13th. hmmm I have to think about that :)

  3. I loooooove the tattoos. You two are totally hipster enough to stamp. Just saying.

    And our next craft night is a stamp-making one, so I am making something for Henry’s birthday party. Natch.

  4. Why are you guys the most perfect parents in the world? I would have killed to have temporary tattoos at my birthday parties… temporary tattoos were NOT allowed in the Burton house growing up. It was a sad and empty childhood.

      Bahaha we are so not perfect parents. In fact we use birthday parties to make up for that fact. If it makes you feel better, we weren’t allowed any cool things like temporary tats either…or PG movies. I’m only half kidding about that last part.
