Last week, I shared the cutest 1st birthday whale invitations I used for Ryder’s birthday party. Today, I’m sharing these super cute DIY Birthday Bubble Favors that anyone can make!
For week’s leading up to Ryder’s first birthday party I was working on a variety of DIY projects. One project that I waited until the last minute to do was making these DIY Birthday Bubble Favors. Sure, I could have just kept the bubbles as is and maybe put a little tag on them, but instead I wanted to make them a little more personable. Originally, I had planned to print the bubble wrappers on water resistant labels; however, I was having a little bit of a challenge getting my very basic design lined up in each of the individual labels so I opted to print on car stock and run it through my Xyron sticker maker.
- Microsoft Word
- Scissors/Paper Cutter
- Xyron Sticker Machine
- Bubbles (found 8 pack at Wal*Mart in the party section for $2.99)
I created my design in Word… nothing fancy. Anyone can do these! Once my design was created, I printed it out on card stock.
Then, while Ryder was eating breakfast I got my craft on. Multi-tasking at its finest! He was also trying out his birthday hat for later on in the day. A tutorial on that hat to come!
Then I cut each of the wraps to the exact size I needed (just measure the original label on the bubble containers. Had I had more time these would have been a lot fancier. But at the end of the day, I’m still happy with how they turned out! I ran each of the pieces of cardstock through the sticker maker.
Then I placed the labels onto the bubbles.
Easy as that and I had 15 custom bubbles to give out for Ryder’s first birthday party.
These are so simple to make and take maybe 30 minutes tops from start to finish! Of course the more intricate the design the longer it will take to make. But for a first birthday party a simple design works just fine! *I will note that after making these favors I would have printed the wraps on regular printer paper. The wraps started to unwind a little and I think it was because of the thicker paper.
