Happy summer, my craft friends! Goodness, we hit a heat wave this week, and it finally feels like summer has arrived! We have been swimming and sun bathing all week, and it has been just fabulous. Bring on the summer crafting! I am working on a fun little summer inspired party next week, and I thought it would be fun to combine a nautical theme with red, white, and blue colors. I think it will be a big hit! Tuck summery party goodies into these fun DIY nautical treat bags.
DIY Nautical Party Treat Bag Supplies:
- Darice Nautical Iron-On Transfers
- Darice Craft Bakers Twine
- Darice White Tissue Paper
- Muslin Favor Bags
- Darice Scissors
To get started on your DIY nautical treat bags, turn your iron on to the cotton setting. Choose which designs you want (each iron-on transfer pack comes with four), and use a clean cotton cloth to adhere them to your bags.
Be sure to follow the packaging instructions. Sometimes they can take a little more time and heat than what you think. I would also suggest letting them cool for at least a minute before removing the plastic film.
I love how each of the designs are different, and they are just so perfect for a nautical themed party! Darice has other themed iron on transfers that would be perfect for other party themes.
Insert a sheet of white tissue paper, and fill will all kinds of summer goodies. I put sparklers, pixie sticks, and all kinds of goodies in mine!
Since the iron-on transfers were so inexpensive, I made about twenty DIY nautical treat bags for our gathering. I think they will be a big hit!
You can easily use these bags in other ways at your party. They would look so cute as utensil holders with silverware and a napkin!
