DIY Party Favor Bags

Hey party people!

One of my most favorite budget saver for parties is wrapping paper. You can use it as a table runner, to cover boxes to use as platforms, to create paper fans, and now…to DIY Party Favor Bags.

If you want to send your guests home with a treat bag of candies, cookies, or other goodies, make the bags yourself with regular wrapping paper.

Here’s what you’ll need: 

Wrapping Paper, Ruler, Scissors, Pencil, & a Glue Stick

1 | Use the ruler to outline a 12″x 7.5″ rectangle on the wrapping paper, then cut out. 

2 | Fold both sides lengthwise to the center. It needs to be 5.5″ across when it’s folded over. Make sure that there’s some overlap.

3 | With the glue stick, add about 1/2″ glue to the inside of one end and fold over one side. 

4 | Add glue to the middle seam and press the opposite side in to the center. 

5 | Fold the bottom up to 1/2″ and add a little glue to secure.

The final dimensions should be 5.5″ x 7.”  

Add the treats to the bag. You can fold it over and add some washi tape or just leave it open.
