Flamingo Favor Bag DIY

For the Flamingo Party this week, our stylist Irene felt inspired by this Kate Spade purse and decided to whip up a a paper version. We’ve included the flamingo template below so that they’re even easier to make. You’ll just need to purchase some some bright pink cardstock and a white paper lunch bags. Everything else you should already have at home! (PS – These Bunny Ear Bags aren’t just for Easter…)

Click through for instructions.

Materials: White Paper Lunch Bags (6”x 3-5/8”x11”), Neon Pink Cardstock (8-1/2”x 11”), Flamingo Favor Bag Template (Front and Back), Glue, A Pencil, Scissors

Step 1: Print out the Flamingo Favor Bag Template (Front and Back.)
Step 2: Cut out the flamingo body and face.
Step 3: Use a pencil to trace the flamingo body shape onto the pink cardstock.
Step 4: Cut out flamingo body shape.
Step 5: Cut 3”off the top of the lunch bag.
Step 6: Line up the edges of the flamingo body into the lunch bag and glue down.
Step 7: Glue flamingo face onto the flamingo body.
Step 8: Repeat steps for the other side.
Step 9: Fill with treats and give to guests!
