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.

Just what we were after

Garden Party Essesntials

The Bagasse plates were excellent. solid enough to cut meat and eat off, and knowing they were biodegradable and made from recycled sugar can was a big plus.
