Star Wars Inspired Party Favors
Star Wars inspired party favors were a must when we had Mr. B’s 6th birthday party. With the release of the new movie, Star Wars is everywhere now. You can see the whole re-cap of our Star Wars Inspired party , including the birthday party review HERE, plus all the food HERE.
Today, I wanted to share the 2 different Star Wars Inspired Party Favors I made up for the party, plus share a little of our Star Wars Party fashion. This is the last party post…I promise!
Since we have a Pinata every year at my son’s party, I wanted to make something for the kids to collect their candy. The first year, I completely forgot bags, and the second I just used store-bought party favor bags.
This year, all the Star Wars themed birthday stuff either had the Star Wars Rebels on it, or was super expensive from past years on Amazon. So, I decided to make my own.
This post contains my Amazon Affiliate links. If you click through the link or picture, you will be taken directly to the product. There is no additional cost to you, and I may make a small commission if you make a purchase.
I bought 2 packages of plain white paper bags (which you can find on Amazon Creative Hobbies® 24 White Small Paper Gift Handle or the picture below.) I then
used some black foam sticky paper from Michaels, and a Sharpie Marker. I then looked at a million pictures of Storm Troopers, and just did the face freehand. All 20 of them look different, and that’s OK. The kids didn’t care. They just wanted a place to put their candy.
Ps. The box I put them in was just a cardboard one from Sam’s club that I covered in wrapping paper.
In addition to the candy bags, I like to give everyone a “Swag” bag. I found some really cute Star Wars reusable totes from Target at the Dollar Spot, and found some cute Star Wars themed stuff to go inside.
I only gave one bag per family because I didn’t want to go crazy with the cost. The kids didn’t really care about the actual bags…just what was inside. I figured the parents would use the bags somehow (or the husbands could keep them…mine wanted one.) I made sure there was enough stuff for each kid, plus if they had a sibling at home.
Inside the bag, each child got a pack of Star Wars fruit snacks, Star Wars graham crackers, and a Star Wars Bracelet (they came in packs of 4, which I got on clearance, also at Target. You can buy them through my Amazon link by clicking here:American Greetings Star Wars Rebels Party Supplies Rubber Bracelets (4 Count) )
I then included either a notebook and light saber pen OR a pencil-case and light saber pen. I couldn’t find enough of all the same things on clearance, but I made sure each family’s bag had the same things in it. Then, I waited to hand the bags out as they were leaving, so the kids would be comparing and/or complaining…as I know mine would.
Finally, I put each of the kid’s initials on the tags both to personalize, and so I would remember who’s bag was who’s. I used some red sticky foam paper and scrapbook letters.
Also, instead of party hats, we used these Star Wars Masks. Feel free to click on any of my affiliate links below to purchase, as no additional cost, to fill your bags.
Finally, what party post would be complete without a look at our Star Wars Fashion?!?! I always like to dress the kids in apparel that go with the theme, so this year was no different. I waited and waited and, of course, got everything on clearance.
The twins’ sweatshirts and pants were from Old Navy. The jeans even had star wars fabric when you rolled up the cuffs on the bottom. So cute! Their T-shirts were made by Adidas, and I got them at the Adidas outlet…which is also where my T-shirt was from. I had a sweatshirt too, but it was actually too hot to wear it.
The awesome Storm Trooper mask is what we used instead of birthday hats. Again, clearance from Target.
Now, unfortunately, these items are no longer available in stores, but you can get them on Amazon. They are a lot more expensive than when I purchased them, but I wanted to include my affiliate links just in case you had to have one. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed all of our Star Wars Inspired Party Favors. If you have any questions about making the bags or about any items shown, feel free to leave me a comment. With the new Star Wars out on DVD, will you be having your own party? Can I help decorate?

Aw! I love those jeans that say “trouble maker” on the pocket! Too cute (:
I love all of these details! The bags are beyond adorable, and the goodies inside were a big hit with the kids, I’m sure.
Thank you Becky . 🙂
Michelle Liew says
Star Wars will always be my favorite Star Wars flick!
My Urban Family says
Cute! And those cardboard boxes from sam’s club are the best! When I had a garage sale this spring we went and grabbed as many of those as we could to organize everything!
Yes! Love them .
Robin Rue (@massholemommy) says
I love those candy bags! We are MAJOR Star Wars fans in our house.
Super cute! I said in one of the other posts how cute I thought these bags were. Who could get tired of Star Wars party details?? I think you did an awesome job with all of these little touches.
Awe . Thank you do much .
Sara Strand says
Super fun!! It almost makes me want to go back to doing parties for my kiddos! 😉
This is absolutely adorable! I love the Trouble Maker jeans!
tara pittman says
My boys love Star Wars, even the teen. He got tickets for the new one.
Those bags are adorable!!! I hope when I have kids that I am as creative as you are (though that probably won’t happen but I’ll try). Def a great idea for the kids to put their candy in. The boys outfits are awesome as well. I think I need to hire you as my party planner. 🙂
I’m in 🙂
Rachel Mouton says
How adorable! I love them 🙂
Stefanie (@LexieLooDylan2) says
Such a great theme! Love the bags. I bet the kids loved them, too!
Anamika Ojha says
Hi Shann, I loved this Storm Trooper mask and what an incredible idea of replacing b’day hates with this. I am sure kids would have also loved it. Your hand-made candy bags are very innovative and creative. Thumbs up for throwing the rocking b’day bash for your son. I am sure, now twins expectations for their b’day party would be much higher from you. 🙂
Ha! Ha! As long as the twins get cake and candy, they’re good 🙂
Christine Cox says
How fun! I will be sharing this with friends of mine as they are HUGE Star Wars fans and have a little girl who is too and her birthday happens to be next week!!!

If Kyle still had birthday parties, I would so do this, we love star wars, but we don’t really think it’s best for Sophie at this age just yet, but I love star wars and get Kyle star wars related shirts for his birthday every year.

Those party favors are adorable! You are very talented. What a lucky bunch of kids.
Awe. Thank you 🙂
Corina Ramos (@NotNowMomsBusy) says
My grandson hasn’t gotten into Star Wars yet. He’s still all about Spiderman. He’s only 4 years old so I’m not sure if he would sit through a Star Wars movie to introduce it to him. 🙂
You truly rocked the theme Shann!
Thanks Cori! Yeah…the twins can’t sit through it quite yet either, but they do know who Darth Vady is 🙂
Erika Ashley (@erikaislittle) says

I love the idea of co-coordinating a movie to a party as a theme and Star Wars is a classic.
These are really neat. I can’t wait to watch the new Star Wars movie! It seems like it’s going to be the biggest movie of the year.
Wow these are Great! That’s so awesome. ALthough I am not a star wars fan I can definitely appreciate those!

Karin Rambo says
So fun! One of my biggest wishes in life is that Kit asks me someday to have a Star Wars birthday party. I’m not even kidding haha! It’ll probably never happen, I’m sure she’ll want princesses and sparkles… and that’s okay too, but oh man. I would be so thrilled!
Love it! We’re a fan of pretty much anything Star Wars in this house so I’ll be making the bags for sure!
Denay DeGuzman says
You are so creative! Those Star Wars party favor bags turned out excellent. I don’t think you could have purchased a set of bags that were more beautiful. I also love that you shared what you put inside those lovely bags. This post makes me wish my kiddos were tiny again! Happy birthday to your little son. 🙂
Kusum @sveetesKapes says
How creative are you, those bags look to cute and professional. Looks like you put a lot of thought and effort (of course love) into making the favor bags and it shows. Storm Trooper mask is such a fun twist, love it! Your boys are lucky 🙂

These are all such cute ideas! My kiddos (and husband) would go nuts for pretty much all of it!
These are so cute! Love the bags
