SpringWatch 2015 Fold Flat Birthday Bash Goodie Bag Tutorial Close Up of Stamping

Oh I do love goody bags for children’s parties. Full of sweeties and noise makers and usually a bit of squished birthday cake, to a child, the contents don’t have to be expensive as they’re lovingly clutched in the car on the journey home, often resulting in the squished cake being deposited upon the car set (I now don’t take my husband’s car to collect the littlies….)

But whatever goes inside, and it literally can be a mini pack of haribo and a balloon, if the outside hides the contents, the children’s eyes seem to enlargen when the parent brings them out at the end of the party.

And while my bags here are definitely for the birthday party, there’s nothing stopping you changing up colours and patterns and making them to suit any occasion.

While I’m on the subject of occasions, while we only have 4 or 5 children to visit here for a birthday party, I have treated each of our 3 older children to one ‘big party’ where all 30 of their classmates attended, and yes, Oliver will have the same. So if you’re a Mum who caters to the whole class and the neighbourhood, having a fold flat bag you can make 2 weeks ahead of the party (when you’re going to be up to your neck in flour and cake batter….) can only be a good thing!

Enjoy the video, and if you’re having a party, I hope it’s a good one!
