How to make your own Cellophane Treat Bags - DIY Cellophane Treat Bags with Iron

You can buy cellophane treat bags in certain stores, however, I couldn't find any recently and came up with a super simple way to make my own!

  1. Cut your cellophane into pieces (I simply used the fold lines as my template, cutting them to the packet size your see above - you want them to be double the size of your finished bag as you'll be folding each piece in half to make the bag)
  2. Turn your iron on high and preheat
  3. Fold your cellophane in half, leaving the folded edge on the bottom
  4. Using a piece of cardboard as a barrier, seal your two sides with your hot iron (before you start, test your cellophane for stickiness as each brand is different by ironing with a piece of foil on top)
  5. Allow your bags to cool completely and check that they've sealed (if not, seal again) before filling with your treats. 
  6. Once your bags are filled, seal off the open top section with your iron, using the cardboard as a barrier as you did before.
Click on the image to see the instructions in full!

Note: these aren't exceptionally strong as they are only heat sealed cellophane so you don't want to fill them too much. You can also purchase cellophane treat bags or use a cute gift bag or box from The Reject Shop - or a jar like we have above! :)

You can also strengthen the bags by taping up the sides with some colourful washi tape or sticky tape after sealing. 

But tell me, are you a Valentines fan?
What's the best Valentines gift you've ever given or received?

  1. Food puns are THE BEST! I'm such a nerd about them! My fiance makes fun of me because it doesn't matter how lame the food pun may be, I always crack up over it and think it's the best thing in the world. I'm using that "I just can't reese-ist you" pun for him this year for sure! One of his favorite candies is Reese's. Perfect! Thank you so much!
