Shelly stuck with doing everything pretty much the same as the kit instructions using the supplies in the kit which include 12 muslin bags, 1 Take 2 Birthday Sticker and some twine. Instead of twine she added ribbon, sequins, and instead of using a punched circle behind the "happy birthday" sticker, she used a rosette. She kept everything consistent, so it would be easy for anyone to just make them in a line. The only thing she changed, was mixing up the colors as she thought it would be fun!

Shelly removed the drawstring from the bag and closed it with a colorful grosgrain ribbon.  Love how her cut one of the border sentiments into little sentiments to add as the finishing touch on her bag.

Love the different colored rosettes Shelly created and the sequins she added to the sticker once mounted.

You can complete one bag at a time, then easily move to the next. Or you can assemble all your rosettes together first, then bags, etc. Then work everything in a assembly line.

Shelly placed each one of her "make a wish" sentiments on a piece of colored cardstock. Then cut around the sticker, leaving a little bit of the cardstock to show. Once done, she added a ribbon on the finished bag.

These DIY Birthday bags would be the perfect activity for a kid's party.  Can't you just see them creating their own favors?  Now there's a great idea! :)  And by the way, you can stamp or stencil these bags too!
