Art Party Goody Bags


I know it's been awhile since I shared anything about the art party, but I still have a few things I wanted to blog about. So next up are the goody bags. I started with white glassine bags.


The goodies included a painted pencil, a glitter glue pen, a mini chalkboard, some white chalk, a piece of sidewalk chalk, a lollipop, a piece of Painterz gum, a stamp and some fun dough.


I found these little chalkboards at Michael's. They are adhesive backed, so they can be used as stickers, but I decided to punch holes in them and string them from some yarn. I wrote "thanks for coming" on each one before putting them in the bags.


Since the white bags are pretty plain, I decided to add some color with paint chips from Walmart.


I chopped off the more pastel colors, so they would be more vibrant and also so they would fit the bags better.


And in the corner of each paint chip, I used a punch to create a decorative "splat".


I didn't want the leftover paint chips to go to waste, so I dug out a round punch and created some confetti for the tables.


To close them all up I folded the tops over and attached the paint chips with some hot glue.

And there you have it! I think they turned out really cute. I like how they're colorful and match the theme, but are still simple.
