Bag O’ Bookworms Tutorial for The Book Themed Birthday Party



  • 3 inch baggies
  • Candy of your choice
  • Solid colored cardstock 3.5 inches x 4 inches
  • Scrapbook paper 3.5 inches x 2 inches
  • Scalloped paper punch 2 inches in diameter
  • Circle whole punch 1 3/4 inches in diameter
Fill the baggies half way with whatever candy you would like to put in there. For this party, we decided to use “bookworms.” After you fill them, fold the solid colored cardstock in half, and staple it to the baggies. Make sure that one side of the cardstock is on each side of the baggie (seems obvious, but we just want to make sure.) After the solid cardstock has been secured, assemble the scrap paper pieces as shown above, or you could of course put your own delightful spin on it – I decided to punch out various number threes from a large piece of scrap papers, and center it, or offset it on the scrap paper as shown. You are now ready to be the most awesome candy giver ever!
Here are the scrap pieces and numbers all assembled. I :heart: them.
Finished bag of “bookworms.” I loved doing this project, and found several inspirational pictures across the web. Let me just tell you that Pinterest is my friend. So much so, that I would love it if you came and joined me.
