Hunger Games Swag Bags

Raise your hand if you've been to see the Hunger Games!  Raise your other hand if you loved it like a fat kid loves cake...or like Peeta loves Katniss!  Now, hop on one foot if you think Gale is cuter than Peeta.  Say your ABC's backwards.  Kidding.

I did like any good fangirl would do and I went to the 12:01 showing of Hunger Games last Thursday night/Friday "morning"...and it was AH-mazing!!  I cried like a baby.  Ask Impulsive Addict.  She was there.  So, was Kiss, the girl without a blog.  She sure can kiss though. *sigh* ;)

If you know me AT ALL, you know that I can have a Twilight or Hunger Games "event" without some swag...or a party...or something!  These things must be celebrated appropriately.

So, I decided to throw a little last-minute Hunger Games Swag Bag together for my girlz, Skillz (aka Impulsive) and Kiss.  Here's what they looked like...

What was in the bag:
  • Some tissues...for when you're "weeping at the reaping".  I decided to be clever and I made up some little squares using Avery Postcards (#3381) that I had left over from Isaiah's birthday.  I wrapped them around some personal size Puffs tissues and tied them up with some raffia.
  • I wrapped up some cookies in parchment paper...ya know, 'cause Peeta is the "bread boy"...it didn't seem very appealing to wrap up bread, so cookies it was!  The cute little "Mellark Bakery" label came from Party Scribbles on Etsy!
  • I had some grey and white striped paper straws left from a Bridal Shower I did last weekend, so I found these really cute FREE printable Hunger Games Straw Flags on Living Locurto! (Awesome website for free printables!)
  • I bought some "tiny bottles" (Barefoot Moscato - YUM, Sky Vodka, and Coconut Rum) and wrapped them in some more labels I bought from Etsy that said "Sleep Syrup", also from Party Scribbles!
  • I also included some cinnamon gum to represent Katniss, the Girl on Fire!
I forgot to take a picture of the swag all put together, but I just put all the goodies in a white craft sack and added some red tissue paper and a little raffia.  Using red and orange tissue paper together would have been cute too, but I was just using stuff I already had.

There ya go!  My Hunger Games Swag Bag!

I posted some links on my Hunger Games post from last week, if you're looking for more Hunger Games party ideas!

SOOOOOO incredibly awesome, JK! Okay, I'm about to admit that . . . I have NOT seen the movie yet. I'm seriously beside myself. Jeremy got sick last week, and was running a fever of 101 on the day we were supposed to go {Friday}. He's finally feeling better now, but my parents left this morning to go out of town for a couple of days, so we officially don't have a babysitter :( Our plan is to see it Friday. Maybe that's good? Now I have a little time to make some swag bags of my own :)

*Also, I'm going to need some tissues, I'm pretty sure. I'm re-reading the books right now {to study up}, and I'm just bawling through every single sentence. Sad but true story.

Both hands are raised and I'm hopping on one foot!

I TOTALLY forgot about the gum. That shiz is already in my purse and being consumed. CRAP! I knew it was missing something.

That was a supah fun night! I'm totally pinning this RIGHT NOW!

Yo, thanks for linking up, Slush. You're the BEST! xoxo

I was there watching all of the Hunger Games glory too at 12:01, just in another state. I'm assuming my swag bag will be given to me in May?...

You are just so stink in clever, yet another reason why I love you so!

Thanks for linking up, I always get so excited when I see your name added to the list!

Your swag is AMAZING! I wish I could have seen Hunger Games with you ladies. I'm DYINNNNNG to see it. I promised Match I'd wait for him, so we're seeing it this weekend. The suspense is killing me.

Yep, Gale is way hotter than Peta. I think Josh pulls off a good innocent Peta but Gale is just sooo...bangable. There, I said it!

I love how into movies/books you are!! I was watching Ellen yesterday (my DVR'd shows) and she was interviewing the gal who plays the head of the capital or something- the blonde chick from 40yr old Virgin-- anyway, she asked her which team she was on-- Team Peeta or the other dude-- which team are you? I need to see the movie or find time to read the books! Love the swag!

this is so exciting!! I might have to start doing these type of things. Gives me another reason to be creative. LOL I'm planning my own hunger games goodies to give out for an hg-themed party next month though.
