One for the Boys - World Cup Sweetie/Favor Bags

World Cup England Sweetie Bags
This is what I have come up with using my Poundland and Home Bargains goodies from last weekend.
England World Cup Favor Bags
I fiddle farted for too long trying to incorporate a football background in the bag, but in the end decided to keep things very simple.

The bag topper is made using a Nestabilities label die on my Big Shot
The footballers are so cute!

This is a less fussy idea – boys aren’t really into fancy toppers and stuff but I did think that this was a good idea for summer fetes etc. I've ferretted around the shops looking for England/World Cup sweets and then split the bags to make "party bags".  They contain a Swizzles Ref whistle (10 for £1) a Swizzles England lolly (10 for £1) a Poundland marshmallow footballer (8 for £1) and three chocolate footballs (Poundland or Home Bargains).

As the footballers are without a wrapper I have sealed them (using my bag sealer) in seperate pretzel cello bags available from e-bay.

After I had made a batch of bags I found some football table confetti, a sprinkle of which would have been a nice finishing touch to each bag IF had I added it!
