Glassine Bags

by Jo Williams June 02, 2013

Crisp, white glassine bags are so simple and stylish. Originally used to preserve photographs, stamps, specimins of insects etc. There is something nostalgic and vintage about them. I love the way that their contents show through the foggy waxy paper making anything you put in them look elegant and lovely

These useful envelope style bags are also grease and moisture resistant making them a perfect container for nuts, baked goods, chocolates, gourmet candies and soaps. They are simply the perfect gift and favor container!

Here are some ideas I have taken from Pinterest for ways to use these fabulous bags:

Printed Glassine Bags 

You can print on Glassine bags, either pop them through an ink jet printer on the right size setting or use rubber stamps.

 

Fill with confetti and then zig zag them closed with a sewing machine. This way you can ensure your guests use the confetti that you want!

 

These would make bright and quirky invites or save the date cards.

 

Add some Washi Tape - Voila!

They make ideal food treat bags, I love the scalloped cut edges on the cherry bags!

 

Using a little Washi Tape and tags to match your bags with your party theme or colour palette

 

Thank you for looking, I hope we gave you some ideas!

Just what I needed

Guess what- it was perfect for a hen party! Top quality.

Beautiful!

Took forever to blow up but worth it! Only needed them for 2 nights but a week later they're still alive. :)

Easy to use

I was nervous about using this but having watched the video it was very easy and the helium filled balloons were great and stayed up well.

Gorgeous !

These balloons are absolutely gorgeous, easy to fill and so pretty, they stayed up for almost a week too !

AMAZING
