Create these quick and easy DIY space party favors! Cute paper bags decorated with paper aliens and fun googly eyes! They are the perfect party favors for outer space-themed parties!
Hello Crafty Friends! We recently celebrated my son’s birthday with a fun space-themed birthday part at our local planetarium. I created a few space-themed crafts for the party including these alien favor bags! They were really easy to make and were a big hit with the kids – especially when each bag features a different little alien on it! The kids at the party loved picking out an alien bag at the end of the party and I loved that they reinforced our space theme in a space that didn’t allow much decorating. :)
Googly eyes always seem to make things a bit more exciting so these bags have plenty of googly eyes on them! I purchased mini gift bags in bright colors then added paper aliens and of course, lots of colorful googly eyes!
I found the alien images on Freepik.com where you download them for free. Below you can see how quickly these came together. They are perfect for a space-themed party but would also be cute for a monster-themed party too! Fill them with toys, candy or themed treats and the kids will love them!
Space Party Favors
- Small gift bags. I found mine at Party City and they measured about 4″ x 5″ but these colorful gift bags would also work.
- Googly eyes – the crazier the better! This set is perfect! – Wiggle Eyes Multi-Pack
- Free alien images from Freepik.com
Step One: Print and cut out the alien images. I found my cute alien images at Freepik.com – one of my favorite sites for great graphics. The aliens I used are called Cartoon Aliens. Most images on Freepik are free for personal use, you are just limited to downloading only a certain amount of images a day. Resize your images so they are a good size for your bags. Once you have the aliens printed, cut them out. I left a small white border around mine just to make it quicker to cut them out.
Step Two: Glue the aliens to the front of the treat bags with a glue stick. Then glue on the crazy googly eyes! I had a great package of googly eyes that included all different sizes and colors and even some with eyelashes so I just went to town adding googly eyes wherever I could! I used my Tombow glue to attach all of the googly eyes.
That’s it! The bags are finished and ready to be filled!
