Digital kits make the best addition to party planning!
You’ll love how easy it is to use the papers and elements of a kit to create amazing party favors that your guests will be amazed by! You are able to use any of the free digital minis I have in my Resource Library, and look for a link to the mini below that I used for this tutorial!
To create the printables, I use not only a digital mini kit but also this FREE template pack:
These are so easy to use and simple so that you can either leave them simple or embellish with items from the kit.
I used the water bottle template to create a water bottle printable and then duplicated it three more times to fit on an 8.5×11 sheet:
I printed these both on cardstock and regular paper, and to be honest, I liked them both the same! So, use what you have on hand. One of the things I like about this is that I can add shadows (like I did under the flair) and it gives a little dimension to it once it is printed. So fast and easy. After I cut them out, I simply taped them over the regular label on a water bottle and they were good to go!
For the treat toppers, I opened up the png file and separated each piece. Then I covered the main piece with the blue to match the flair above. I used white on the label piece and then pulled in one of the word art from the kit! So easy! Then I added a soccer ball. I added shadows to the different pieces.
Next, I wanted to add my folding guide to the center. To do this, I made sure my rulers were in view mode (View>>Rulers)
Then I went into the margin by the numbers at the top and pulled down a blue line (also called a guide) to the 2 inch mark. I lined up my treat card to that line.
Then I pulled down a second line to the 4 inch mark. This is the halfway spot. Now I can line up my dotted line with that second blue line:
Since I don’t want it to be super obvious, I’m going to lessen the opacity down to about 20%. Then I will remove the guides (View>>Clear Guides>) And it looks like this:
To fit the most on a page, I turned it sideways and was able to fit 4:
Print, cut out, fold on the dotted line. Then I took a simple brown lunch sack and put a bag of pretzels inside. You could do multiple things depending on if these were for a party or an after game snack! Fill it with what you want and then fold over the top. I placed the topper on and punched two holes. Then I strung some thick black cording and tied a double knot. So easy and cute and super fast if you were wanting to make a bunch of them!
For the cupcakes, I covered the base in the soccer paper from the kit. Then I covered the topper with the blue paper and made the stitching black. I added a star element and sized it to fit. Then I added a shadow and merged the layers to get ready for printing.
The last thing I did was the banner. This was so easy! I’ve seen banners where the main piece is cut out of scrapbook paper and then large circles are cut out and then the letters are cut out. But do you know what is so easy about this banner? I only had to create one piece and added the circle with a shadow. Next, I typed in the first letter, found the right font, changed it to match the dark grey from the soccer ball print and made the letter the size I wanted it. Once I liked how it looked, I simply printed it. After it printed, I just edited the text for the next letter and then printed. So easy! The entire banner, with cutting out, took me less than 15 minutes!
After it was cut out, I punched holes in the corners and then ran the thick black cording through it. And I was done!
What I love about this is that it is great for a sports or soccer birthday party, but you could also use different elements of it for game day or to celebrate the end of the season.
Even if it was just the little gift bags filled with healthy snacks to hand out after a game! Easy but gives an added touch!
And with the template pack, it can be used again and again with multiple different kits to get all kinds of custom party favors!
