These LEGO inspired favor bag toppers were a huge hit at M’s last birthday party – a brick themed bash! You can check out our LEGO photo props or scroll down for this free printable to use at your LEGO birthday party. Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links.
M’s last party went along with his latest obsession: LEGO.
I designed these treat bag toppers in two ways. One is a very faint black and white outline for those of you who need to conserve prints. It is designed to be printed on yellow paper and then assembled. I also outlined the head shape with black marker to highlight it.
The second style is a full-color printout. I still left this face blank so that you can do what you want with it. I added only googly eyes to some (my favorite design) and played around with other facial features. On these, I left the white sides blank.
The biggest perk of leaving the face blank: you can use these as place cards too!! Just write the name on the face instead of adding features!
I wanted to include something that wasn’t another cheap novelty that’ll break in two minutes, and wasn’t more junk food
The lots were a huge hit, and the coolest perk: the extras were simply dumped into our existing collection, instead of being put in the “prize box” never to be chosen by anyone…

What you need to assemble these LEGO inspired treat bag toppers:
- The printable, printed on white or colored card stock (preferably) or regular paper
- Simple clear plastic bags (note size of your favors to make sure you get the right one. You need 1cm empty space to staple on your topper.)
- Craft knife
- Scoring stylus and/or bone folder (recommended)
- Self-healing cutting mat (recommended)
- Guillotine cutter (optional)
- A stapler
- Googly eyes or eye stickers.
- Optional: black marker
- Favors!! Here are some ideas:
- We got inexpensive building brick kits and filled in with these brick people when we thought we might not have enough. The sets we got are unfortunately no longer available but here’s another option.
- Go with authentic LEGO lots of used bricks on Ebay and fill the bags with a random mix. This is great for that age when most kids enjoy LEGO and don’t want their stash mixed with off-brands. We also did this to help build up our personal stash, and to offer as prizes for our LEGO reward chart.
- Look for random lots of mixed mini figures and put one in each package (as long as you don’t mind getting the less popular ones).
- Get these packages with really small builds, and put one (prebuilt so they know how to reassemble it) in each of the LEGO treat bags.
- Or just get themed brick party favors to fill your treat bags.
How to assemble these LEGO inspired favor bags:
1. Print your desired style on white or colored card stock.
On the one printed on a colored paper in black and white, you may prefer to fill it in with marker before you start assembling.
2. Use a straight edge and craft knife, or a guillotine cutter to cut out your bag toppers along the outer rectangle.
3. Use a craft knife on a self-healing cutting mat to cut around the section of the head that is above the faint center fold line. Cut only until that line, leaving the top of the head completely attached to the rest.
4. Score along the faint center fold line. Don’t score across the head – that stays straight!
5. Fold your treat bag topper in half, leaving the entire head to stick up.
6. Add your googly eyes or stickers.
7. If you want, add facial features using marker.
8. Fill your plastic bags with favors and seal them shut.
9. Staple your treat bag toppers at the base.
That’s it – your LEGO inspired favor bags are complete!
