I bought a foodsaver really cheap at Tuesday Morning ($75 for a $350 msrp sealer) I vacuum seal icing, fondant, and leftovers of these in bags and canning jars. I also ship cookis with these bags. I put in a piece of sturdy cardborad and vacuum the cookies to the cardboard. The cardboard keeps the cookies from breaking in shipment. It is also keeps them dry if something spills or the shippers get the box wet.

Good idea! I'll have to give it a try..

Also.. for anyone sending things over seas.. the foodsaver is the best way to go.. one with a manual shut off is better that way it won't squish teh crap out of whatever you put in it. Anyway to get most of the air out will ensure it isn't moldy when it gets to your soldier. My brother just got back from Iraq last Sunday and we sent him stuff all the time sealed up in the foodsaver bags.

According to the website, if you have the bags that have the seam down the back, then they will seal with the iron. I've seen the bags that are kinda stretchy and don't have a seam on them, and I think those are the ones that will melt. Ew. Be careful. I don't want anyone yelling at me for a gooey mess on their iron! icon_redface.gif

okay, I just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you for this info. I've been searching high and low for some paper to match grad cookies I just did and can't find any......well, I can't just stape the bags shut.....now even bigger problem....I can't find bags big enough to put the cookie right side up into...I have to turn the cookies sideways..what now??? Well, I don't know where my iron is (we steam our clothes) so I grabbed the curling iron I NEVER use ( my hair is naturally curly).....and voila.....sealed bags, no need for staples or tags and the cookies will be fresh for thursday..........thanks again michelle

OMG... thank you! I was looking in a book about to order a sealer for $199 and decided to see what you guys were up to while I was away - it's not tlike I'm addicted to this site or anything icon_redface.gif - and the first thing I see is this thread. Plus I need something to do with my iron since I don't iron. icon_surprised.gif

You can purchase heat sealers online at Harbor Freight for under $40.00. Here's the link:
