Lego Party: The Favors – Packaging

Well, friends, Little Crafter’s big day is a week away, which means this Artsy Mama is in party overdrive mode!  I’m so glad we started making the favors and decorations in advance…it’s making me feel {slightly} less overwhelmed.  Anyway, my most recent job was figuring out how we wanted to package all the favors to give to LC’s guests.  Here’s a peek at what we came up with.
First, for the KIDS:

There will be 11 kids between the ages of 2 and 8 attending the party.  Each one will receive Lego Minifigure crayons and a Lego Brick Necklace.  Remember these guys?

Little Crafter helped me put three crayons for each child into small treat bags…he was so cute about it!  Very methodical about what colors he wanted each friend to receive!
To create bag toppers, I just cut white cardstock into 3″ x 3″ squares, folded them in half and stapled them on top of the bags.  I used a circle stamp to create a Lego-y look on each one, and used alphabet stamps to personalize them with each child’s name {mostly because LC was so adamant that everyone get the “right” bag}.

We repeated the same process for the necklaces.  LC strung each brick onto the cord for me, and put each necklace into a bag.  He chose which color each friend would get, and I did the same kind of toppers.
These smaller bags will go into a larger bag decorated to look like a Lego and labeled with each child’s name {example coming in just a minute}.  You can get Lego bricks from a variety of places, including online if you’re looking for something specific.
In addition to the other kiddos, we also have four “babies” between the ages of three months and one year old.  I didn’t feel comfortable giving them the other favors due to the small size of them, plus, they’re not particularly interesting for an infant!  So, I made a blue Lego beanbag {like the ones the bigger kids will be using to play games} for each baby…they’re soft, they’re safe, there’s nothing to choke on or pull off, and hopefully even the littlest friends will think they’re fun!
To package them, I used a 1 3/4″ circle punch to make circles out of cardstock, then used sticky pop-up dots to adhere six of them to each bag so they’d look like giant Legos.  Then, I stamped a little nametag for each one.
The older kids’ bags look just like these, except that the bags are blue and the dots on the tags are red.  I totally love how they turned out!
We “big kids” get {in my opinion} the best favor of all…the chocolate minifigures!  We put three in each small treat bag, just like we did with the crayons, and I sealed them with the same kind of toppers.  Adults can help themselves to a bag as they leave the party.
That is, if hubby doesn’t eat them all before next Saturday!
