Despicable Me Birthday ... Minion Gift Bags

Next on my list was the gift bags for the treats, most of you know me and I hate giving tons of candy or cheap toys that parents hate and throw away.  I rather just make cool themed items and add them to the bag.  I'll show the things I made soon!


What you need:
Yellow Gift Bags (I bought off Amazon - They were small not what I expected but worked out perfect - 2 Dozen for $5.88)
Ball Mouth Lids (found on Amazon 12 for $5.34)
Black Card Stock
Blue Card Stock
White Card Stock
Google Eye (Large)
Black Sharpie (Draw on the mouth)
Glue

What you need to cut on Cricut:
White Circle - Size 1 1/2 (Eye)
Black Circle - Size 1 (Eye)
Black "I" - Size 4 (Eye Strap)
Black "I" - Size 1 1/2 (Hair)
Blue Square - Size 2 1/2 (overalls)
Blue Rectangle 3 - 1 1/2 (overall straps)
Black 7 - 1 1/4 (for age on overalls)

Find a good glue you like, after the one I didn't like I went back to Hobby Lobby and found a craft glue that worked perfect.  I then added the blue square at the bottom for the overalls and added the straps.  Since it will be Caden's 7th Birthday I cut out a seven and added to the overalls.  I added the strap for the eye on top.  I then added a Ball Mouth lid (I meant to buy the Ball Mouth Ring but this actually worked better).  I hot glued the lid down, then used the craft glue to glue down the white and then add black and top with a eye.  I added 3 strips for the hair.  Then I drew on a mouth!  Done, and actually pretty easy!
