These printable Pikachu faces instantly make any gift bag more fun! Perfect for Pokémon birthday parties!
I’ve been keeping a BIG secret, which I will need to keep for a little longer, but this secret prevented us from hosting the birthday party at our house, which we always do. So I let my son choose where he wanted to have the party, and he picked our local bowling alley. Which turned out to be SO much fun! But since the party wasn’t at home, and I was limited on what I was allowed to do for food and decorations, I don’t have too much to share on it. Though I really wanted to share how CUTE the party favor bags turned out! And the cake. ALWAYS the cake.
We just had a Pokémon birthday party last fall when my oldest turned 8, but both my boys are completely obsessed so my youngest insisted on the same party theme. He, however, wanted a Pokémon EX birthday invitation, whereas my oldest had a Trainer card invitation. Both of these invitations are available in my Etsy shop.
I shared this photo of the party prep on Instagram last week. These party favor bags came together pretty quickly.
Each bag contained a handful of Pokémon cards, a Pokémon tattoo, custom made Pokémon trading card notepad, a ping pong Pokéball, and a few small Pokémon figures (affiliate link).
We used the Pokémon figures at our previous Pokémon birthday party to play live action Pokémon Go! It was the BEST! And the little figures were so popular that I purchased more to go in the party favor bags.
I also made little Thank You tags to go on the bags that you can download here.
I bought a pack of inexpensive little notepads at Party City and changed out the covers (see my tutorial here) with Pokémon cards that I downloaded from the internet, sized accordingly, and printed out.
These ping pong Pokéballs are leftover from our last party. I taped off half of the ball and spray painted it red. I wrapped a piece of black duct tape around the middle. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut small black and white circles for the center of the ball.
I love how these Pikachu bags turned out! I found these tiny yellow paper bags (3″x6.5″) at Party City. I designed Pikachu’s face to print out on yellow cardstock and printed them out. I added the white on the eyes with a white paint pen and used a 1″ circle punch to cut out the cheeks on red cardstock.
The bags are tiny, but hold all of the party favors perfectly!

So our first party not at home was a success! And, I admit, a bit less stressful than having it at home. Though we’ll probably go back to that for our next party. Maybe. We’ll see!
