Hosting a baby shower and looking for budget-friendly DIY ideas? Well then girlfriend, I’ve got you covered with my FREE printable baby show favor bags! Even if you are not the hostess, these baby shower treat bags will come in handy for all sorts of baby-themed events. Includes a cute rubber duck gift tag.
Ways Use These Baby Shower Bags for Favors
- Use them for baby shower cookie favor bags! Wrap cookies in plastic wrap, place inside, and tie closed with a matching bow. They’d be so cute with my Soft-Baked Sugar Cookies with Sprinkles using blue or pink sprinkles!
- Add candy and tie closed with printable “thanks” gift tag.
- Play baby shower bingo and use the gift bags to hold baby shower prizes.
What You Need to Make Homemade Baby Shower Favors
To make these favor boxes, you’ll need white cardstock, an exacto knife or scissors, double-sided tape, a hole punch, and the printable template. I’ve included instructions and cutting guides on the download, so you know exactly where to cut, score, and fold.
How to Make Baby Shower Party Favors Bags:
Step 1: Print
Download the printable paper bags PDF and print on 8.5 x 11″ white cardstock (I use Neenah 65# Bright White).
Step 2: Assemble
Use scissors or a die-cutting machine to cut along the edges then use an exacto knife to score the fold lines. Apply strong double-sided adhesive to the flaps where indicated on the PDF, then adhere it closed. To make it look more like a gift bag, pinch in the sides, punch holes at the top of the bag, then add string.
Step 3: Fill, Embellish, and Gift!
Fill with your favorite treats (ideas below!), tie closed with some cute baker’s twine and the rubber duck gift tag and a free printable baby card, then gift away!
