Travel Party Favor Bags

by Lynn Lilly, Jan 25 2015
One of our Facebook page friends asked if we could help her create a do it yourself gift bag for a travel themed party. I got to work and created a simple and easy paper suitcase that could work for an adult or youth party. 
  • Brown paper bags
  • Scrapbook paper (colors of your choice)
  • Twine/String
  • Travel themed scrapbook stickers
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue Stick
  • Ruler
  • Hole punch
  • Thin Sharpie
  1. Cut the top 4-5 inches of the brown paper bag off and set aside.
  2. Take the scrapbook paper that you selected for the handles, draw two handles, cut them out and set aside.
  3. Use the ruler to measure the height of the bottom portion of the bag then draw and cut 4 straps on the scrapbook paper of your choice and set aside. 
  4. Draw and cut a tag shape on the top portion of the brown paper bag that you set aside in step 1. Punch a hold in the top of the tag for the string that will be used to attach it to your suitcase handles.
  5. Draw and cut the interior tag on the scrapbook paper of your choice. Glue to the outer brown tag. Write a message or name on the tag and set aside.
  6. Position and secure the straps and handles on each side with the glue stick. The picture above depicts two different ways to position the straps and handles. 
  7. Attach the tag to the front handle with the string. 
  8. Position the tag on the bag and secure with a travel themed sticker
  9. You can add more stickers and draw stitch marks with the sharpie on the straps or around the edges of the suitcase. I depict both ways in the picture above.
  10. Fill the bag with fun travel themed items and wow your guests with your creativity. 
Ideas for travel themed gift bag swag: Sunglasses, disposable camera, mini alcohol (if it is an adult party), mini photo album, compass, mini suntan lotion, earphones, tissues, chapstick, book, travel journal, gum, etc.
