Favor bags for a puppy party. Any brown paper bag can become an animal with some scissors and glue.


What you’ll need:

  • Doggie Bag template
  • pencil
  • brown paper bag (with handles)
  • brown, light pink, white and black paper
  • glue
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • small ball chain


Step 1 Go to Darcy’s Downloads and print out the Doggie Bag template, cut it out and trace the shapes onto paper. Shown here is brown paper for the ears and mouth, pink for the nose, black for the eyes, and white for the dog tag.


Step 2 Glue shapes onto the paper bag as shown. Punch a hole into each dog tag, write a guest’s name on each tag, and attach to the handle of bag with ball chain.


Despite the name, doggie bags don’t have to be limited to puppies! Make your own design for cats, pigs, bunnies or whatever the birthday boy or girl’s spirit animal is. For more Puppy Party ideas, go to the Getting Started chapter of Celebrate Everything!
