The reason I have been M.I.A. for a while is because I just recently got married and have been crazy busy party planning. But have no fear, that whole time I was crafting as well. So now that most of the parties are over, I have some exclusive party crafts for you.
Instead of using plastic gift bags for small party favors, you can upcycle your own. And they are completely recyclable when your guests are done with them. Talk about a win-win.
Toilet paper tubes
Decorative paper (magazine clippings, calendar pages, wrapping paper)
You can leave the party favors like this or you can make them a little fancier by adding a card to each one.
Paper (I used blank parts of junk mail)
Hot glue gun and glue
Hole punch (or scissors/pencil if you don’t have one)
Optional: strip of candy bag used in part one and a rubber band
They way I did mine was that each party favor had a “prize” associated with it. Once opened, the party goer either got to “take a treat from the candy jar” or “explore the treasure chest” (miscellaneous items like candles, pens, and toys).
