Hello hello, dear readers! :) Two days ago, I have already been blogging about last weekend’s Crafty Christmas party and today I want to show you the goodie bags and what was in them. :)
They consisted of sponsored items I got from some of my favorite cooperation partners and of some tiny surprises that I provided myself.
One of my goodie bag sponsors was edding. Apart from sending me lots of permantent markers for the DIY table, they sent white permanent spray for each goodie bag. I love their products and especially this spray paint, maybe you remember me using it for my bike restyle project or for my Advent candles. :) Can’t wait to see what my guests make with it!
My dearest aentschie, who is not only a blogger, but also a media designer, made this awesome printable for gift tags and envelopes for last minute presents or to make giving away money or a voucher more personal. :)
My lovely sponsor Snaply Nähkram provided us with their colorful heart pins. Using them always makes me happy when I’m sewing, because they are so colorful! :)
Of course there has also been something that I provided, so I filled the goody bags with my candy color reindeer postcards.
Another fantastic sponsor was Garn & mehr. Apart from receiving all the pretty rolls of yarn for the DIY tables, we also got the prettiest yarn rolls in each color for the goody bags, eeeks! This baker’s twine is perfect for DIY projects, for decor stuff and for wrapping presents. :)
Moreover, the guests got my handmade gift tags I designed recently. :) If you want to have them, too, you can simply print them out.
Last but not least, my goody bags were also filled with those pretty chevron paper bags by Partyerie (who also provided me with decor and supplies for my food table, blogpost coming tomorrow). These bags were perfect for filling them with sweets for my guests. :)
To fill them with all the pretty goodies, I first had to prepare the goodie bags. :)
For making and embellishing the goody bags, I could use all the supplies I have at home. Paper, twine, punchers, tape, …
Of course I used the beautiful baker’s twine.
Moreover, I recycled some pretty rolls of paper and used my handmade Christmas stamp for the tags.
To make those tags, I cut out white cardboard with the puncher and stamped them.
Using the baker’s twine, I finished my tags.
Because the paper bags were way too big, I had to make them smaller. I cut them in half and put the upper part into the lower part.
Then I used tape to fix it and my bags were ready.
Moreover, I embellished all of them with washi tape stars on the outside and later added the gift tags, tiny name tags and put tissue paper on top.
After finishing the goodie bags, they still needed to be filled with all those pretty things! :)
First of all, I made the candy bags.
Next, I rolled Anja’s printables and wrapped them in colorful twine.
Moreover, I used masking tape to embellish tea lights.
Don’t they look incredibly colorful and pretty? :)
I’m extremely happy about how the goody bags turned out and I love my concept of making them matching my candy color decor! :)
The best moment was definitely watching my guests opening them and being excited about the content, this was worth all the planning and effort! :)
So here’s a big thank you to my sponsors who made this possible:
Snaply Nähkram, Garn & mehr, aentschie’s blog, edding and Partyerie.
