These home made party bags are so easy your children can probably make them themselves with just a little help and they’re adaptable for any occasion. Use whatever paper you like best and you can make great Halloween trick or treat bags, or gift bags for presents. I’ve had this as a draft post since L’s birthday back in June but as it’s NurtureStore’s birthday this week I though now would be a good time to post it. And if you haven’t yet entered our fab Orchard Toys birthday giveaway, pop over and enter now!
To make the bags you need: a packet / box the size of the party bag you want to make, paper (we used wrapping paper), sticky tape and scissors.
Cut your paper to size and wrap the box up with the paper just as you would a present, but leave the top open so you can fill the bag. Fasten in place with sticky tape. Slide the bag off the box and fold it and crease the edges to give your party bag a sturdier shape.
Add a name tag and a ribbon and you’re done. Change the paper to suit the occasion: maybe use a pumpkin instead of a heart gift tag for Halloween?
