Party Bags: **blog post for party bags here***
To make the minion bags I bought yellow lunch baggies & blue heavyweight paper. I drew out a quick overall pattern to cut out for all of the bags and used the blue paper for those. I found a clear picture of the minion goggles and printed them on white cardstock. Cut those out and glued to the bag as well. With a black sharpie I drew on the minion’s side smirk and free hand a overall pocket and dots for the buttons. Like I said, these did take time but they were fun to make and it seemed like people got a kick out of them, so I would say success :).

While doing my party planning research I saw a lot of these adorable minion cupcakes all over the web. So of course we had to try them out!
For the Minions on the cupcakes My Mother-in-law and I halved each twinkie, used black frosting for the goggles and the mouth and edible googlie eyes I found at Michaels. I had the intentions to use brown sprinkles for the hair but ran out of time =\. I think if I wasn't rushing at the park while doing this they would have turned out better, but in the end I think they get the point across, right?
