{DIY} Monster Goodie Bags

Connor's birthday party was a great way for me to tap into my creative juices. I knew I wanted to DIY some things to make them a bit more personalized and special for his big day! 

When I found these bags at Target (10 for $3.99- I snagged two packs in different colors), I knew I had to make goodie bags for his friends to take home.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the shapes for eyes, hands and ears. They had these adorable "build a monster" sets available for only $0.99 a piece. Each one included 4-5 different shapes for each body part. I used different colored cardstock and was able to individualize each bag... 17 in total! I'm not gonna lie, it was a bit tedious to glue every little piece on to the bags, but the end result was worth it! Then I simply used a sharpie to write each childs name on their bag.

Scrap pieces of colorful cardstock (stripes, polka dots, etc.) were recycled as gift tags and I printed a sweet little message from Connor onto each one.

As for what was inside...

The babies received a Plum Baby smoothie, monster stickers and a little monster-faced sandwich bag full of Gerber puffs. I found the bags in the Dollar Spot at Target a few months ago. They were perfect!

The toddler bags included play-doh, a kazoo and monster stickers, as well.

Here are the bags in all their glory on the day of his party.


 I really hope that the kids enjoyed their special little bags.
