Butterfly Party Treat Bags
I spotted these Butterfly Party Treat Bags over on SimplifiedBee.com and thought ‘thank goodness, at last there’s something I can use up our endless supply of pipe cleaners on!’
Actually I think these are really sweet and would be FANTASTIC to put in Christmas stockings as well as in party bags. They’re very simple to make and ideally they’d have more sweets in, but I may have scoffed more of the kids’ stash of jelly beans than I’d remembered. You can of course put whatever you like in them – even little craft gems, other crafty items or even small coins…
N.B. make sure that whatever you put in them is suitable for the recipient and doesn’t pose a health hazard!
What you need:
- Sandwich bag / cellophane bag
- Sticky tape to tape the edges
- Wooden clothes peg
- Pipe Cleaner
- Googly Eyes – I know our middle child would squeeze at least 12 on if he made one of these.
- Felt pen (for the spots)
- Sweets or treats
Then you just recreate the photo and suddenly you have Butterfly Party Treat Bags. Simples.
Do keep an eye on your googly eyes until the glue dries though in case they slip. That may have happened to me – not a good look for Butterfly Party Treat Bags at all I didn’t think.
