I want to seal several different items, pretzels, cookies, brownies, etc. in cellophane treat bags. I was thinking heat seal, but does it work? Does foodsaver seal cello bags?

Any ideas?

The foodsaver and hot sealer may end up melting the cellophane bags as they are not made for those type of machines....I would just tie them ot staple them shut.

You have to have special plastic for the FoodSaver (sealer) because it uses heat to seal.

I just use a silver twisty tie thingy or some pretty colored raffia type ribbon. I do a ton of holiday baking and I've never had anything dry out or go stale yet that was packaged in a cello bag.

I did a little searching on the web and found a lady that posts a blog on baking and packaging. She said she uses a cheap vacuum sealer and seals treat bags. It was a 39.00 sealer.

I thought that I read on here before that someone uses foodsaver to seal cello bags.

I tried a cheap little craft iron on the cellophane and it works. (Saw this Suggestion on CC).

Thanks for the tip. I will pick up a small iron at the craft store today and give it a try.

Just don't let the craft iron get too hot!
