DIY Memorial Day Goodie Bags

by Chelsea Costa

Okay, who needs a last minute quickie DIY for your Memorial Day celebrations?! I know you’re out there raising your hand. If so, you’ve come to the right place. Today I’ve got a quick, cheap, super cute DIY that will make your Memorial Day clambake just perfect.

Supplies –

  • paper lunch bags
  • a few colors and patterns of washi tape (red, white, and blue make it pretty patriotic!)
  • scissors

Place a few strips of washi tape across the bottom of the lunch bag, and press them so that they’re smooth and secure.

Trim the ends of the tape so that they’re flush with the edge of the bag. Don’t do what I did, and accidentally snip the bag open!

Open the bag, and roll down from the top. Don’t be afraid to crinkle it! Just be careful not to cause any extreme tearing.

That’s it! Fill them with goodies and put them out at your party! They work perfectly for snack foods – popcorn, chips, cookies, and the like. Or fill them with utensils, napkins, and other party supplies. Happy Memorial Day! xoxo

I adore this! Such an amazing idea!

Cute idea, rolling down a lunch sack! I posted the tutorial on my blog a few weeks ago! :)

Oooh, I love how casual this is….even better, HEART washi tape!! I love this!! :) I’m also thinking 4th of July when we gather in the cul-de-sac for fireworks!

This is super cute and looks fairly easy to make!

These are lovely. They would be ideal for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations in June. Thank you.
