are putting one of those cute tags over the top and stapling it? Or do you? Thanks
for those of you who are new to this like me and wondering the same thing..... you can use some sort of sealer for the bag and then double stick tape for the tags. Staples are not recommended.
I just can't afford a sealer so I used my flat curling iron. I put it on low and in one second, the bag was sealed and didn't look all crumpled up. DA DA !!!!!
I use a heat sealer.
pattycakes55d: Did u put it directly on the plastic or have a thin material as a protector or something?
Also do you mean flat curling iron as in a like a hair staighter or something else?
I'm sorry, I'm new at cookies (lol) and I'm confused. What tags are you talking about? Do you have pics of what you mean. Thanks,
I use a heat sealer. I have a 4" but I really should have bought an 8".
I use a heat sealer. got it on ebay for about $8.00.A commercial on at that 12" long. I used it for everything that needs sealing in plastic.
If I need a tag on top I just seal the bag then staple it on.
OMG I went on ebay to look too and i never realised how cheap heat sealers can be!!!! Is there a specific type of plastic they work on? What about those celophane type of cookie bags?
Yes I did mean my hair straightener. I just put the tip of the bag to the edge of the straightener and very quickly closed the straightener for like one second and da da. I have never heard of heat sealers. Will have to check those out.
What I want to do is make a gift tag with the computer with either my name or Merry Xmas or whatever and fold it over the plastic bag top and probably tape it or something to the bag. It just personalizes.
yeh i want to make some christmas tags too for some of my cookies and like you though before was going to staple them.
I'm looking at getting a handheld heat sealer from ebay since i prob won't need it that often and they are pretty good prices
I use my Foodsaver. I have a professional model from years ago. It also has a cutter and it works fantastic!
what i do is wrapping it first with a transparent plastic the i get the blower and blow it with the warm air from the blower. it compresses and it'll look nice after wards. Where did i get that idea? On my husband when he used to work in the bakeshop.

Retail plastic bags
custom plastic bags
that sounds like a great idea. I've heard of people using saran wrap and then pulling it in on the back with tape or a logo label. Is the hair dryer too hot for the cookie and warm enough to seal?
