Handmade Party Favor Bags or Lunch Bags

I have a super fun birthday party coming up for my 2 girls and by the time all has been said and done I still needed some party favor bags for our little guests. Looked everywhere with no luck in the colors and theme i wanted.

What is the theme you ask- Well the theme is there is no theme! I just know that the colors of the cake and decor is set to black and pink. I finally decided to make my own! I spent 5 bucks including all the paint needed and the bags.
I started with recycled brown bags-40/1.00:) and then used a black sharpie to create different things, Lady Bugs, Butterflies, Hearts, Swirls and a few boy designs. I love black so i start with solid black and used paint with a fine brush to add color and detail to the bold black designs. I then stuffed with goodies and rolled the top under and used hole punch about 1.5 inch apart to create the ribbon holes. I again used black ribbon scraps to close with a bow.
What i really love about this is that no 2 are the same, You can even use these to pack your kids lunch. Your only limit is your imagination! I love the way these turned out and will forever custom make my goodie bags:)
