Beautiful baked goods and sweet treats always make wonderful wedding and party favors and the best way to package them is in clear bags or boxes. So with that in mind, I used our 8oz gusset clear bags and came up with five different packaging projects to inspire you. 

If you like the bag headers that I designed for a couple of the projects, you can download them for free for your wedding or party favors. You'll find the downloads at the end of this post.

Decorated cookies can be quickly packaged in our clear gusset bags. The bags should be folded over at the top before adding the folded header to keep the cookies fresher longer.

Note: The bag can be cut shorter if it is too long for your cookies. The header should always cover most of the empty bag space as shown in the photo above.

Paper straws are not just for drinking! Use cut paper straws to decorate our bamboo skewers
 and start making your own candy kabobs!  Add my folded paper headers the bags using two staples. Or if you want to add an extra little touch of colour, try punching two holes through the header and bag and use ribbon or baker's twine to tie together.

Use custom stickers and our clear bags to repackage large colourful lollipops. If you can't find a sticker shape to suit your packaging needs, you can create your own size and shape of stickers using full page sticker sheets and paper punch shapes. 

Note: if the bag is too long for what you are packaging, work out the length that best fits by testing with one bag and then cut the rest of the bags before you start to fill them.

Who doesn't love cakepops?! These adorable little treats make great favors and whether you want to package them so that they can stand up on their own (like my samples) or so that they can be displayed in a container our the 8oz gusset clear bag are the perfect size. I covered plain white lollipop sticks with paper straws before packaging mine. Add a custom tag or flag to match your event theme.

The mini chalkboard signs on this project could also be added to a custom bag header. Write guest names on each chalkboard sign and you eliminate the need for additional escort cards. 

Inspired to make some of these yourself? I hope so!
