I can’t believe I still have posts about Sawyer’s birthday not published right now. Things have been crazy and I keep meaning to make them a priority but I promise they will all get shared! I only have one or two left. Today I want to show you the goody bags I made. They came out so cute!
The Mickey Mouse goody bags were super simple to make. I looked around at a few places for black bags but I really liked the ones I found at AC Moore. Most craft stores sell solid color bags with and without handles. The preference is up to you. I chose handles so they were easy to carry. I liked the natural ones because they faded into the background more than the white ones I saw in other stores.
Here are the tools I used to make them:
- Friskars Paper Trimmer
- Red, White, and Black Cardstock
- Jumbo Oval Craft Punch
- 3.5 Inch Circle Craft Punch
- Glue Runner & refills/Glue Dots
Before you grab your glue prep all your paper. Having three kids running around the house I always like to prepare so that if I stop I can pick up easily.
For each bag you will need:
- Two 3.5 inch black card stock circles
- Two 1 inch white ovals
- One 3-4 inch red card stock strip the same width as the bag you chose.
Now that you have all your pieces they rest is a breeze. Grab your glue of preference and then adhere the red strips at the base of the bag. Then take your white oval and stick them on vertically centered. I found standing and having one in each hand helped visually place them faster.
Then attach ears. I just added a little glue at the base and then attached them. It’s okay if they partially cover the handle. You’ll still be able to carry it okay.
I found a bunch of great Minnie & Mickey products at my local dollar store and made them all identical. If you notice I actually only have stuff for 5 kids but I knew I wanted them on the table and made a 6th and left it empty. I used red tissue paper to top them off. They were a HUGE hit!
Didn’t they come out great?
