Today I’m sharing 9 creative lolly bag ideas on the blog. Maybe you call them goodie bags nevertheless they are a little token gift that is given to party goers when they leave. Soon I’ll share another 9 ideas that I have saved up however haven’t had a chance to use as yet.
First up are some cute Batman Party lolly boxes. These were made out of cardboard and cut out using a Silhouette Cameo machine where I purchased the box design. You can read more about them here and you can change the picture too. It doesn’t have to be a bat it could be a heart or a star or even a snowflake for a Frozen party. Lots of possibilities.
These ice cream cones were made with a bamboo cone which was filled with lollies. Then I scrunched up a piece of tissue paper to look like ice-cream on top. To hold it all together I used a square of clear cellophane and an elastic band to secure it.
The lady beetle lolly boxes were one of my favourite and if you want to re-create these then pop over to this blog post about them for clear directions. They are made by painting and stencilling a brown paper mache box. It was so much fun finding lady beetle treasures to fill this with along with a few lollies.
A felted Hello Kitty adorned each of these easy to make felt bags. Again any simple design could be used for this type of goodie bag. Check out this post to find the answer to that question and instructions to make your own. Just wondering if you know the name of Hello Kitty’s male friend? You’ll find the answer in that post too.
A homemade pillow case as a lolly bag for a sleep over party makes the perfect gift. Everyone loved theirs so much they used them at the party!
One of my favourite lolly bags were these mini baskets for our Red Riding Hood party. They would also work well for a picnic and you could just match the colour theme with the little rectangle of fabric you use to line them. See some more pictures on how to create these here.
For our rainbow party these mini gumball machines were the perfect container to fill with rainbow coloured chocolates. Take a look here for more details on them and this fun rainbow party we held.
I’ve actually had a few requests for these labels we made for our Very Hungry Caterpillar Party. Of course the kids were still hungry? Email me if you would like these labels for your own Caterpillar party, otherwise you can see how we made them here and get a closer look at the fun contents for the tins too.
These paper teacups were again created with my Silhouette Cameo machine for the Alice in Wonderland tea party we had last year. They would be great for any tea party or even a high tea.
I hope sharing these lolly/goodie bag ideas with you has inspired you to make and create your own fun lolly bags for your next party. As I said earlier I’m planning on sharing some more fun ideas for goodie bags again soon.
Do you love a good lolly bag or hate them? They do help you to get (bribe!) your child to finally leave a party that they have had so much fun at. Remember they don’t have to be filled sky high with lollies. If you have some time and put some thought into it you can find some fun things to include that go with your theme like whistles, clickers, badges, bubbles, rubbers/erasers, etc. etc.
