You can't have a monster party without monster themed goodie bags! I just finished these yesterday and am really happy that everything seems to be coming together. This project is pretty self explanatory, but to give you some specifics, here is what I used:
I found the bags at the Dollar Store. They were 2 for $1 which seemed like pretty decent deal to me. The only disappointment was that they didn't have any green bags. That would have really completed the color scheme.
I used Recollections 5.5 inch white card stock circles (found at Michaels) for the big eye and then with my Cricut, I cut smaller circles for the second eye and eyeballs.
The horns and mouth were cut freehand from scraps of card stock paper that I had leftover from my Monster Party Hats.
I set everything up in an assembly line on my dinning room table and used a hot glue gun to glue everything on.
Now you may be thinking to yourself, what kind of goodies do you put in a monster goodie bag? Monster themed goodies of course!
The monster tattoos, paddleball game, and pop-ups were all purchase from Toy Connection. They have really great bulk pricing on novelty gifts. The lollypops are from Birthday in a Box and the squishy monster toy is from the $1 section at Michaels.
This was a last minute decision, but when I saw all these monster-themed books at the Barnes and Noble, I had to include them in the goodie bags as well! SHHHH...don't tell my husband I spent more money :o)
These bags will also be used to hold the candy that will be flying out of the monster piñata! Keep your eye out for that post coming soon!
