DIY Abby Cadabby Birthday Party: Customized Party Favors #Tutorial


If you haven't already, please read my previous post on DIY Abby Cadabby Birthday Party: Boutique Style Birthday Hat #Tutorial . There you can see pictures of the party and a tutorial on the Boutique Style Birthday Hat.

I found these cute little Abby Cadabby Party Favor boxes for the kids that I needed to fill. I added some snacks, stickers, and a Sesame Street mini activity book. I needed to fill them a little more so I decided to hit the dollar store and see what I found there. I couldn't find anything that quite matched my theme so I took some mini clay and bubble containers and personalized them. The best thing was that they were each 5 for a dollar or 20 cents a piece!

This is how I did it:



  • Dollar items you can personalize
  • Printer
  • Paper
  • Double sided tape
  1. I measured the existing label of each item. Using an image editor (I used Paint Shop Pro 9) open a new file the same size you just measured. 
  2. Using the fill tool, color the image the color you want it. 
  3. Use the shape tool to put some stars around the background.
  4. Add a an image of Abby Cadabby (or any character you chose, I just did an image search on Google)
  5. Use the text tool to add some text. (I added "Thanks for coming to my party!")
  6. Print out as many as you need to cover all of your favors. 
  7. Cut out carefully and using double side tape, tape onto party favor.

  47. Wow! You just made that so easy with those few steps. I would love to customize my sons birthday party gifts but I thought it would be so much work, so I never really tried it. I haven’t used the program you suggested but I can use some other software that I’m accustomed to - thank you!
