Cute Party Pail DIY - Party Bag Tutorial

by Jo Williams September 13, 2014

There are times when a traditional party bag just wont do. My daughters 9th birthday party was just one of those times. We made little party bags using our cute soup/Ice creams tubs.

These sturdy tubs come with a tight fitting vented lid, we pierced through the vent and inserted some twine for a handle. We decorated them with pretty fabric strips in keeping with the party theme and tied them into bows.

This is such a simple and effective DIY that can be achieved in no time. The pots are big enough to fill with a snack or packed lunch, use as an individual cake box or pop an apple in for a teacher! 

The full shoot from this Glamping Themed party will be featuring soon.

Birthday party

my order arrived on time, the balloon were sensational!
Will come back!

They look very elegant


These don't come assembled so allow yourself enough time for folding the foil into strips and attaching with bands. Looked lovely on the fireplace (not lit!)

Order enough

This only filled 2 numbers and two 16in orbs so definitely order more than you need and note it gets expensive!!! Do a design that allows you to use air and hang upside down and save helium for where you really need it.

Just what I needed

Guess what- it was perfect for a hen party! Top quality.
