Goodie Bags: 6 Creative Ideas


  • Owl Goodie Bag


    I'm obsessed with owls so this cute goodie bag at Make Something Happy caught my eye. They recommend it for Halloween, but I say owls are a year-round kind of bird. Whoooo's going to argue?

    Download the owl head template at Make Something Happy and attach it to the top of a brown paper bag. Easy.

    This great idea from My Rumpus, a blog that has all kinds of tips for throwing the perfect Where the Wild Things Are party, can really be applied to any birthday theme. For the goodie bags, all you need are some colored lunch bags, name stickers, scrapbook scissors, and a little creativity.

  • Robot Box

    This cute, ingenious goodie box was made by the Etsy shop Paper Acorn. The custom-made robots are die-cut and hand-assembled from colored card stock. Each robot has movable arms and a pair of wire antennae. The backs open up so you can fill the box with party goodies and treats.

    If the $5 per Robot Box is too steep for your goodie bag budget, consider using the box to hold the birthday gift -- or just get inspired.


  • Crocodile Clothespins
