DIY – Girls Night Out Favors

July 8th, 2011 by     


This coming weekend there are 2 big Wedding Expo’s in my area so I have invited my Bridesmaids on a Girls Weekend! Wedding Expo by day, Downtown Get Down by Night!
I wanted to Thank them in a way more than just making a card or giving a verbal Thank you for the girls taking the time out of their busy schedule to give me an entire weekend of their time – so I have put together a “Girls Weekend Survival Kit“!

Here’s the Breakdown:

Buttons:

I have been looking for Buttons for us to wear while at the Bridal Shows but I just couldn’t find any that appealed to me – they, in one word were, BORING! So I decided to go to my local craft store – get some Button Kits & Make my own, here’s what I came up with:

Hangover Kits:

Due in large part that we are getting a hotel room downtown for Saturday Night and plan on going out and having a good time with just the girls, I thought a Hangover kit would be the perfect addition to this Girls Weekend Survival Kit!

Kit Includes:
1 pack of Saltine Crackers
2 Hello Kitty Bandaides
1 Lip Smackers
1 Tang Electrolite Drink Mix
1 pkg of Chewable Pepto
1 pkg of Extra Strength Tylenol
1 Hair Tye
1 Make Up Remover Wipe
1 Small pack of Gum
1 Pkg of Drinkin’ Mate – Hangover Medicine
(All items were purchased at http://www.minimus.biz/ <- Love this site!)

Finished Product:
Other things found inside the bag – a feather boa in their favorite color, which also matches the bag it is in, a pink shot glass that says “Girls Night Out” and a little baggie of 4 Mardi Gras Beads! I purchased Zebra Print tissue paper from Hobby Lobby, the bags from Party City, the Zebra Ribbon from Hobby Lobby and the Name plates on the bags I created myself using Sticker Paper & Scrapbook paper.

These of course can be modified and designed to your taste and event, they would be a perfect, quick & Simple DIY favor for a bachelorette party! They were a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see how the girls react and what they think about them!
Sooo…what do ya think?
*I want to note, this post is a few weeks old, and the girls just LOVED them! They had never received anything like them and couldn’t quit talking about them!*
