“Mini purse”- Lolly bag

I love making favor party bags for many occasions. My kids and I prepared diferent kinds to give as a gift to their classmates on special occasions like birthdays, Easter or Christmas.
I found it so much fun to make them so when one my closest friends was organizing her daughter’s birthday, I was happy to volunteer to bring the lolly bags for her guest friends.

I got inspired to make a Mini paper purse by the beautiful Mel Creations in her blog MEL STAMPZ

She has tons of  awesome designs, but because I have very little time, I decided to make it simple .

They were truly a complete hit in between the little girls, especially when I appeared at the party carrying 24 helium balloons as well as the lolly bags.
