4 Step DIY Tutorial To Make Personalised Hen Do Bags

 What You Will Need To Personalise Your Hen Do Bags

First things first, let’s talk about the DIY supplies you will need in order to personalise your hen do bags.

  1. Paper Party Bags – we got our party bags from one of our all time favourite, party supply website, Talking Tables.  They cost £4.50 for a pack of 8 party bags.  These party bags are quite big so bare this in mind if you have a smaller budget and don’t want to have fill your bag with too many treats.  If you’re looking for something smaller, these hen party bags may work better.  They are also from Talking Tables and cost £3.50 per pack.
  2. Letter Stickers – you can buy these from most craft and stationery shops.  Make sure you get enough stickers to make hen do bags for the amount of guests you have coming to your hen party.
  3. Decorative Stickers – if you want to add a little more decoration, choose some decorative stickers to add to your hen party bags!
  4. Top Tip: Make sure you work out how much it is going to cost before you commit to  design.  If using lots of sticky letters is too expensive, maybe just write one word using the stickers or alternatively, just decorate your hen do bag with one decorative sticker.  It’s the thought that counts!

How To Personalise Your Hen Do Bags

Step 1: Plan It!

Before you get carried away, come up with a quick plan and a design for your hen party bags.  You don’t want to end up not having enough room to spell out the bride’s name!  Use a ruler and lightly mark out lines using a pencil if that helps you keep your letter straight.  Remember to rub out these lines once you have finished your design.  Otherwise, you can just freestyle it like we did.  Are you stuck for ideas?  Here’s what you could write…you could include the bride’s name, the guests’ names, the location of the hen party.  Or you could just keep it simple and spell out ‘Hen Party’ on each bag.

Step 2: Get Sticking

Carry on sticking your letters onto your hen party bag!  As you can see, we decided to add the bride’s name after we spelt out ‘hen party’.  We obviously need to heed our own advice next time and come up with a plan before we start our design.  Continue sticking your letters until you have achieved your design.  Then do it all over again until you have enough hen do bags for all your guests.  Alternatively, if your budget is tight, you can just personalise the bride to be’s bag.  If this is the case, make sure you go all out and decorate it with your best crafty design!

Step 3: Add The Final Touches

We used pretty bows to finish off our design.  This made our hen do bags feel a little more special.  Make sure you think about your bride to be and her tastes when you design your party bags.  Our design might be too girly and vintage for your bride to be.  If you have a theme for your hen party, make sure your hen do bags match the theme.   Think about her favourite colours.  If she doesn’t like pink, think about using gold, cream or black party bags.  There are so many different party bag designs out there, we’re sure you will find a colour scheme your bride will love.  Here are a few online shops you can take a look at if you’re looking for a different colour scheme: Peach Blossom, Wedding In A Teacup, Postbox Party, Ginger Ray and Talking Tables.
