  Paper bread bag TUTORIAL

Sharing baked goods with friends and loved ones has never been so easy! This paper bread bag is created entirely form items found around the house.
For this project you will need:
- paper bag
- piece of cardboard – large enough to fit your word(s)
- sticky foam letters (I found these at Target a few years ago)
- glue (I used a Scotch Wrinkle Free glue stick)
- stamp pad
- writing utensil*
- ruler*
- scissors
- sewing machine
* these items are optional.

Stamp Instructions:

The first step is to decide what you would like your stamp to say.  I went for FRESH BAKED BREAD, but there are so many possibilities.

Next, draw parallel lines to use as guides when laying out your letters.  This is the part is optional, if you are comfortable with winging-it, then go for it.

Remove any unnecessary foam pieces.

Lay out the letters backwards on the cardboard before gluing to make sure everything looks right. Trim any excess cardboard.

Carefully slide the letters off to the side, keeping them in the correct order.

Cover the cardboard with glue.

Attach the letters.

Carefully peel off the paper backing, leaving the sticky side exposed (after the ink is applied the stickiness should not be an issue).

Set aside to dry.

Bag Instructions:

Cut the paper bag to a size that fits the item you are packaging, leaving 1/2″ seam allowance.

Sew around three edges of the bag using a sewing machine (if you don’t have a sewing machine, tape would work too).

Trim the edges as needed.  I used pinking sheers to create a decorative edge.

OK, now for the fun part! Lets get stamping.

The glue is probably not totally dry, and you may want to let it set a while longer.  I, however, was a little impatient so I went ahead and used the stamp right away (and didn’t have any problems).

Dab ink onto the letters until they are evenly coated.

Flip the stamp over and press firmly on the back.

It is worth taking your time on this part.

Carefully lift up the stamp and admire your work!

Repeat as needed.
