Super easy and super affordable! Downright cheap, really. Here’s how:
Step 1: You’ll need your tools. Shown in image 1 above:
- Paper lunch bags
- x-acto knife
- A bone folder (or use a butter knife)
- Double-sided tape
Step 2: Print the free template on your color printer Download link Here.
Step 3: Use the bone folder and ruler to score along the dotted “fold” line on the template.
Step 4: Trim out the labels using your ruler and x-acto knife. Be sure to use a cutting mat – it cushions the x-acto blade and saves your surfaces from nicks and scratches. Fold the label along the score mark you created with the bone folder. Pre-folding the label makes it much easier to apply later.
Step 5: Using the bone folder and ruler, score the paper bag for easy folding. We made the score 1.5 inches from the top of our bag.
Step 6: Fold the paper bag at the score mark then fold a second time. Run the bone folder along the edges to make a nice, crisp fold. Pre-folding the bags will make it much easier to have a uniform look when all the favors are displayed…it will also make assembly easier and faster.
Step 7: Fill the bags with your goodies then fold the tops down. (note: If filling with cookies or any other edible favor, be sure to put them in a box or glassine bag first so you won’t get grease spots on your paper bags). Using the Easy-Stick, apply adhesive the the back of the label. Add label to bag – the long side of the label should be on the same side as the bag’s fold. The short side of the label wraps around to the back of the bag.
Step 8: Display and enjoy!
