DIY Camera-Themed Party Favors


DIY Camera-Themed Party Favors


This past weekend was my friend’s bridal shower! As a first-time bridesmaid, I had no idea what to expect, but it turned out really well and our bride was overjoyed!

She loves photography, so her entire bridal shower was photography-themed. We had a scrapbook, a “caption this” game, a giant polaroid frame photobooth, and camera puns galore (one of my favorites: a “Say Cheese Platter” of various cheeses, nuts, and crackers)

I made the guest favors for the event, and I wanted to share this fun DIY idea: Photo-balms! (get it? like photobomb?!)


DIY Camera-Themed Party Favors


Materials needed:

  • Kraft paper favor bags (I got them at Michael’s)
  • Camera stamp (mine is from The Plaid Barn)
  • Alphabet stamp set (mine is from Oh Hello Friend)
  • Stamp pad (I’ve had this one since I was a kid)
  • Washi Tape (mine is from Daiso)
  • Lip Balms

A really easy way to turn alphabet stamps into word stamps is to just tape the letters together! Here I have two: one says “phot” and the other says “balm”. I only have one alphabet set, so I had to do the second O in “photo” separately.

Stamp the words, then the camera!

Stuff your lip balm into the bag at a diagonal so it fits snugly. Then, fold the top part of the favor bag over and secure with washi tape.

All done! :)
