When I first started planning my daughter Kayla’s Frozen themed 5th birthday party I came across this super cute favor bag on Pinterest and I immediately knew I wanted something similar for our Frozen party!
With a few supplies I was able to put eight of these bags together fairly quickly and I’m sharing with you in this post how you can too! I also created a cute favor tag and a printable for your favor table to go along with it (download below)!
In the interest of full disclosure, the prices I saw on Etsy for similar favor bags wasn’t super expensive, but even as a novice crafter I knew this was a project I could tackle for much less.
Also, I know for a fact if I can do it, so can you! Now let’s gather our supplies (don’t forget to grab the free downloads below) and let’s get started, shall we!
Supplies you will need to make you own Elsa favor bags
- Cardstock or matte photo paper
- Scissors and/or craft knife
- Lunch size paper bags in the color of your choice
- Blue tulle
- Glue (I used E6000)
- Elsa print out (below)
How to make Frozen Elsa favor bags
1. Print the Elsa pictures on cardstock
or matte photo paper. You should try to
print the best quality possible.
2. Cut out each Elsa using your scissors and/or a craft knife. If you’re using scissors only, I would recommend leaving a thin white border around Elsa.
3. Once you’re done cutting, glue Elsa onto the bag. Cut your tulle to size (I honestly I did not measure). Fold the top part accordion style and glue it around her shoulder and trim any excess tulle.
4. This step is optional, but to give the bag a more finished look, I added glitter snowflake stickers and made a small bow with my thin ribbon and glued it to Elsa’s cape. At this point, I also added my favor tags. Print the favor tags (download below). Punch out tags with a 2″ paper punch, then hole punch the bag and tag. Using the twine, tie the tags to the bags.
That’s it, your all done! Now wasn’t that easy 🙂 This was my first time making favor bags like this too and I dare say the end result was a very impressive favor bag for very little effort (just how I like my craft projects)!
*A little tip for you, during the party put a small table near the front door (my husband’s great idea) and put all the favor bags on it with the sign I provided below (thanking your guests for coming and telling them to take a favor bag). This way you can ensure all of your pint size guests get their favor bags even if they have to leave early.
