Angry Birds Goodie Bags

I created rows of Angry Birds goodie bags for kids to take home after celebrating with us at my son's Angry Birds party


Materials:
  • red, green, yellow, and black goodie bags (I found these sold individually by color at a local party store)
  • images for the front of the bags (the images I used are below)
  • goodies for the bags
  • 14" lengths of contrasting 1" wide ribbon (I used red ribbon for the yellow and black bags, blue ribbon for the green bags, and gold ribbon for the red bags)
  • double sided tape
  • scissors
  • hole punch

First I printed out images I wanted to use on the front of the bags. I cut the images out and used doubled sided tape to attach the images to the bags about 2" from the bottom of each bag.
Then I added an assortment of goodies to the bags. My bags included a gold "egg" necklace, an Angry Birds Silly Bandz bracelet, a solid-colored pencil found from a local party store, an Angry Birds mini notebook, a golden egg squeeze ball, a wooden bird whistle, and a couple of candies.
Once filled, I folded the top of each bag over about an inch, and then over again one more time before using a hole punch to make two holes (about 2" from each side) in the double fold.
I threaded pieces of contrasting ribbon through the holes from the backs of each bag...
...and tied the ribbons into simple knots. I finished the ribbons with v-shaped snips.
And that was it! I mixed the bags up to make a colorful display on a table by the door so that kids could grab them on their way out. Surprisingly, the black bags were the most popular selection...
