How to Make Minion Party Bags

Middle man decided that he would like a minion birthday cake this year so I decided that I would also have a go at making some minion party bags. I purchased some yellow bags from e bay and then set to decorating them. I started by adding a blue foam strip, which were in a craft planet goody bag, to the bottom of each bag.

To make the eyes I drew around a penny added a black pupil and used a brown crayon to make the iris.

I then drew a large white circle using the mouth of a plastic cup and cut this out. I used the yellow paper from a spare bag to make eyelids. I then cut a strip of foil, scrunched it up and put it around the eyeball. The eye was then stuck in the middle and this was stuck onto the yellow bag.

I finished the bags off by using pipe cleaners as hair and a variety of expressions using black foam for the mouths.

Middle man seemed pleased with them, except he wanted some two eyed ones! His cake will therefore be a two eyed minion instead. Some children are just hard to please!
