Give Your Guests Unforgetable Party Favors
Back again with another adorable Monsterously fun treat bag. I love giving guests a little something to thank them for coming to our parties. A parting gift if you will. And how much fun could it be to give them a gift that they will love and keep long after your party. I mean, could you simply toss these guys in the trash? I know I couldn’t, so give your guests unforgetable party favors.
How cute are they! Can you imagine a whole bunch of these guys just waiting for their kids to pick them up and take them home?
And talk about easy to create, all you need is some cardstock, your cricut machine and Mini Monsters Cartridge, and some wiggle eyes. Then just do a little folding, cutting, gluing and fill them!
All I did was to cut my monster bags to fit across my layout, three at a time. Not even going to say I sized them to a certain size. just wanted to fit three in my Craft Room layout space, then I added the extras, like the bag handles and the faces. You could create a lot with just the three colors of cardstock I have here. Easily you could create a fast dozen of these guys with just 4 pieces of paper.
I will tell you, I ignore the eyes for the most part. I prefer wiggle eyes, they just give so much more character. And I love differing sized eyes, it gives the monsters a comical look. Aren’t they just too cute?
These bags are just the right size to add a handful of treats. You can also do wrapped candy or popcorn.
If you are like me, you can’t just let them be too plain though. I added some teeth to the mouths.
Just take your white cardstock, and trace the mouth shape, then decide what kind of teeth you want. They are pretty easy to cut any size and shape, and still work wonderfully.
And don’t forget, you don’t have to give a party, you can give these to your neighbors, or co-workers- what a cute little decoration for a desk!
