Today, let’s have some fun with printed duct tape! Oh the possibilities!
This is one of my absolute favorite creations, and yet, so simple! DIY Duct Tape Party Favor Bags!
Last year, for a very special bachelorette party, the best friend and I put these together and they couldn’t have come out any cuter!
Here’s what you will need for each bag:
- Colored (or craft) paper bag
- Printed or colored duct tape
- Approximately 9-10 inches of ribbon
- Some type of decoration (a cutout letter, a sticker, a stamped image, etc)
- Sharp scissors, hole punch and clear nail polish
Once you compile all of your supplies, putting it all together is a cinch!
What we found easiest to do, is to cut a piece of duct tape long enough to extend over both sides of the bag. Using sharp scissors (because the duct tape is sometimes tricky to cut), trim the duct tape nicely to the edges of the bag. We did this on the front and the back.
Next is the ribbon. As you can tell from the picture above, the ribbon seems tricky, but it’s actually really easy! I’ve gone ahead and attached a quick how-to below, just in case. (My sister Christy taught me this cute trick to tying ribbon. Thanks Chris!)
Add your decoration and your bags are complete! Super cute and super easy! Here’s our finished products…
Now that the bags are complete, what you decide to put inside the bags is entirely up to you, but since this was for a bachelorette party, we decided to go with the classic hangover kit!
What our kits included:
- Hand sanitizer
- Hair ties
- Granola bar
- Antacid tablets
- & of course a barf bag!!
Now it’s truly complete! Don’t limit yourself to just bachelorette favor bags though. These cute bags could be made for birthday party favors, wedding favors, thank you gifts, etc. Have fun with them and post your pictures on my Lulubell Elaine Facebook Page!
Thanks for reading through!
