For the kids friends I made gift bags to give out at the birthday party. I’m all about the party being about the birthday kid but I didn’t make invites for anyone so I figured a cute bag with snacks in it would be just as good.
Even though the party didn’t have a theme, this crab set from Stampin Up was perfect! The crab is holding a piece of cake in a shell, there are other accessories I could have included but I wanted to get it all done in a day so I kept it simple. You can kind of see the party hats on the side of the main image, which I realize works mostly on darker colored paper. Alice helped pick out which ribbon should go with which and also with the coloring. I didn’t want the crab to be all one color, I was going for a shaded look, but I ran out of time.
I put a few pieces of candy and a fruit snack in each bag – I made one for my kids plus the other four kids that came. Everyone was happy with them and my kids are still playing with theirs days later! I am so glad I did them and I’m wondering what else I can make them for. I do need to use different adhesive as the sides came apart much too easily for my liking.
I found the gift bag tutorial here – very easy to make and so cute!
