Hey Guys!

Today I am going to share with you how to make your own Minecraft Dynamite Party Favors! Super quick and easy to put together :)


The first thing you need to do is find an image that you would like to use. Here is wallpaper I found to create my labels. You will want to save the image on your computer. Next thing you need to do is open it up and edit it in Picasa (a free photo editing website). Add your text by using the text option. The font I used is called MineCrafter3 (that font will need to be installed on your computer prior to editing the picture). Once you are happy with your image save it!


The next thing you need to do is print the image. Since I wanted fit a bunch of labels on one sheet prior to printing them, I used Microsoft Word (I'm sure you can use other programs as well!) When in Word, Open up the image you created. Size it as big or as little as you need it. I made mine using 2 colums 5 rows, total of 10 labels per sheet. These were big enough to wrap around 4 twizzlers.You are now ready to print, perferably using a colored printer. Cut out your labels.


Now the fun part begins! 
Fill 4 twizzler sticks into one of these bags (refer to above image). Tie the top with the provided twist tie. Another option would be to use some black or white pipecleaners. Next, wrap the label around the middle of the bag. Secure the ends with glue or tape.

And voila, easy Dynamite Minecraft Party Favors!!! Guarenteed to be a blast at the next Minecraft Party! What kid doesn't love twizzlers :)


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Party Planning  :)
