How to

1 Snack bag

Bags for putting chips, popcorn, and other types of snacks in. These are easily made just by folding the paper. Try picking out patterns that will tickle your guests' fancies.
  1. Cut your design paper into a square, fold it over to make a triangle, and then fold in the ends in the directions of the arrows.
  2. Fold one flap of the top forward and it's ready!
2 This size fits perfectly in your hand. Place them in a wire basket or other holder for an absolutely photogenic presentation!

—Style 1—

Fold them up combined with waxpaper to wrap sandwiches and snacks for a slightly different variation. This style is especially recommended for oily snacks and other foods. You can also use a pair of crafting scissors with a zigzag pattern to up the cuteness factor!

2 Wine glass tags

Create a way to keep an eye on your wine glass at a lively gathering! Prepare a variety of patterns and let your guests enjoy picking out the tags they like.
Let's make some tags cut into our favorite shapes. Just punch a hole and make a single cut toward the center of the hole to finish the job.
3 Straw tags

Waste not, want not! Put the scrap margins of the design paper from your wine glass tags and snack bags to good use! Put one of these on your straw to mark your glass.
  1. Cut strips to the length of your liking to wrap around your straws, and attach some double sided tape to the end (area in blue).
