Spiced up brown paper bags make great, not to mention very cost effective, party favour bags for children’s parties. Using Inkscape (an open source vector graphic editor) I put together the panda graphic I used for the labels on the favour bags we gave away at my son Connor’s Panda Birthday Party. Here’s a tutorial for the favour bags, with downloadable panda labels:
1. Materials and tools needed to make 1 favor bag:
- brown paper bag
- panda label
- pinking shears (nice to have) + scissors
- hole puncher
- glue stick or hot glue gun
2. with pinking shears trim the top edge of the paper bag
3. fold the top edge, and with the hole puncher, make a couple of holes
4. Download the Panda Labels
, trim it using pinking shears, spread glue on the back and stick on the paper bag.
5. Fill your bag with goodies. To close the bag, thread your ribbon through the holes, tie a little bow…and voila, you are done!
6. If you want to add some colour to your bag, you can stick the label onto cardstock or scrapbooking paper in the colours and patterns of your choice, trim the paper leaving an a frame around the label and then glue it to the back of the bag.
Change the panda label for a different one, and you can easily customize it to fit any theme of your choosing. Needless to say, you are welcome to use my Panda graphic for personal use only.
