DIY Goodie Bag

If you love planning parties that have a more personal touch, it is really easy to put together a creative DIY goodie bag without spending big bucks. You can do this with a few items that are already in your home or kid's craft bin and the birthday boy or girl will have so much fun helping you craft!

  • Brown paper bags
  • Colorful paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Sponge
  • Ribbon
  • Scissor
  • Colored cardstock or construction paper
  • White computer paper
  • Fun stickers
  • Tape
Step 1: Take a brown paper bag and fold the top part of the bag down about an inch of the way.

Step 2: Make 6 incisions with a scissor in the top of the fold.

Step 3: Cut out a 4x6" piece of white paper and a 5x7" piece of colored cardstock paper and adhere them together with a few fun stickers.

Step 4: Take an old sponge from your kitchen and paint a fun shape onto it for your goodie bag. We chose to paint a cupcake for our craft.  Place the sponge with paint gently on your white paper and press down.

Step 5: Once the paint has dried on your white piece of paper, tap it to your brown paper bag.

Step 6: Fill your bag with your goodies. This can be anything from little toys to candy!

Step 7: Loop your ribbon through the holes you cut in step 2 and curl them at the ends if needed.
