I am SO excited to be participating in this blog hop! I love Halloween, it is probably my most favorite holiday! I have a 7-year-old, so we are VERY busy this time of the year, lots of costume-related events to attend. It seems as if the world is being overrun by adorable princesses and ninjas!
With so many events, comes so many party favors that I inevitably have to create or bring. Ok, honestly, I sign up for them because they are so fun!
Today’s project is no exception. My daughter’s Girl Scout Troup had their Halloween party the week after last. I did buy candy, cute little rings, and pencils for them. But I chose to create their goodie bags.
This was the PERFECT opportunity to FINALLY use some of my Mama Elephant dies I’ve been hoarding but hadn’t found a reason to use yet. IDK why I haven’t used them yet, I have so many of their Favor Bag Accessory Dies. Probably because my daughter’s parties included a lot of kids, this Girl Scout Troop only has 12 children in it.
12 was do-able, it took half a day to create from scratch, and it was SO FUN! The best part, laying out the eyes and spiders so that each bag had its own personality!
For this project I used:
- Curious Metallic Violette Cardstock
- Mirrisparkle Glitter Silver Cardstock
- Shimmery Yellow Discount Cardstock
- Basis Black Cardstock
- Score Tape
- Tombow Adhesive
- XL Favor Bag, Mama Elephant
- Halloween, Favor Bag Accessories, Mama Elephant
- Silver Embroidery Thread
- Red Marker
I added cute little spider web threads from the spider that tied around the hole in the top of the bag. I liked making the eyes try to focus on where that spider was. It added a bit of whimsy to an otherwise rote task, as mass-producing can be.
I hope you enjoyed this little project! The smiles on the faces of the children made those few hours I spent more than worth it. Even better, the pride my daughter felt at bringing these to her party.
