Does your child have a birthday coming up? Do you need inspiration for that treat or party bag. Here are our DIY tips for making a simple bag and 9 other DIY party bag ideas for inspiration.
How to buy cheap items to fill DIY birthday favor bags?
- Check the clearance section after any holiday. Might require a little planning, but totally worth it and even cheaper than just buying things from the Dollar Store.
- After any holiday you can always grab things for super cheap. My son’s birthday is an April and I snagged Valentine’s toys for 70% off at the end of February. 15 Bubbles and skateboards for less than $3!
DIY Easy Birthday Tag
I found that CANVA is amazing! You could design free party invites, create tags and your own custom thank you notes. Here is a screenshot of a new mustache design I just customized as a thank you tag. Even if you don’t have design experience, you will be able to figure this site out.
Recently I started exploring using Canva.com on my laptop, instead of phone or tablet. I can’t believe that it is a FREE design tool. As a DIY girl, I am ALWAYS looking for inexpensive and FREE! You can upgrade to the paid version to really unlock more designs. If you haven’t ever checked out this site, you really need to.
Search the Templates to Create Tags
One could spend hours searching and trying new templates in Canva. Make sure that the free logo is on the templates you want to use. Trust me, you will be able to find one that will fit your birthday theme.
For my son, I simply found this adorable mustache one that said “A stache of thank yous” and change it to add “for celebrating my birthday and for being my friend”. This probably only took me 5 minutes to create and mainly because I was “shopping” around and looking at all my options!
Next, I downloaded the image from Canva to my camera roll and added them to my pages app (mac’s word program). Then, I was able to resize and fit as many birthday tags on a page as I wanted. After that, I hit print and I was ready to cut them out.
Since I am a DIY nut, I always need simple ways to cut any cards I make. This personal rotary trimmer sure comes in handy for some of my simple paper projects!
Add Birthday Treat Bag Items
There is an endless array of options here. I was able to find beaded necklaces and jumpy frogs at my local dollar store. In a few of the bags that were for the kids at the babysitter, I even ordered these small wooden cars that kids could decorate themselves. I tried to stick to non-food items. However, if cooking is your thing, I am sure kids would love to have few treats in the bag.
Treat Bags for any Occasion
I was so happy with how these easy DIY birthday treat bags came out that I had to share this simple project here. I know that these were only “kind of” DIY, but if you really wanted to you could completely make everything in the bag. Since I was able to find such good deals, it really wasn’t worth it to make all the little treats! My son sure had a smile on his face when he came home from passing these out to his friends for his birthday!
