Printable Birthday Tag

Everyone needs a little something on their birthday, right?  My girls love to acknowledge people's birthdays with cards and gifts, so I came up a super affordable little gift for them to share with their preschool classmates this year.

We started with packages of bouncy balls from Target.  They had different size packages in the party favor section, but they all worked out to be a quarter each.  I've also seen packages of bouncy balls at the dollar store. I let the girls pick out their favorite designs and then we put each one in small Wilton treat bag.  These particular ones were 3x4 inches and came in a package of 50 for $2.99.

Print out your handy dandy bag topper, cut it out, fold it half, and staple or glue to your bag.  Simple as that!

There are a ton of ways you could use this printable tag.  I also thought it looked cute with these dollar store gumballs.  If you were giving a toy gumball machine, you could punch a hole in the tag and tie it on.  How about a sleeve of golf balls or any kind of sports ball?

How else could you use this?  I bet there are a lot of other creative ideas out there. As for us, we now have a little box in the closet filled with our small birthday gifts for classmates, ready to hand out throughout the year.  Have fun with it and let me know if you use it!
