Filled with delicious gold coins these easy to create favor bags make a special treat.  And you only need a few minutes to whip them up.

Lucky Favor Bag with Gold Coins

What you’ll need:

  • Muslin Bag (I found mine in the Target Dollar Spot)
  • Gold glitter iron on vinyl
  • Green thread (optional)
  • Cardstock
  • Gold Coins


  1. Iron the wrinkles out of the muslin bag and lay flat.
  2. I used my new Cricut Explore to cut out small hearts from the gold glitter vinyl (this stuff is amazing!) If you don’t have a cutting machine you can use a heart punch.  You could also print a template and paint the shamrock on with gold paint.
  3. Arrange the hearts to look like shamrocks. Follow the directions and iron on the vinyl.
  4. Cut a small strip of white cardstock and write or stamp the word “Lucky” on it.
  5. Use your sewing machine and sew the “Lucky” paper to the muslin bag
  6. If you want to add a pop of color carefully add a green stitch to the top of the bag.
  7. Fill with gold chocolate coins and give to your lucky friends.
