- Wedding: March 2009 - Beach Social Hall
You know those bags that coffee typically comes in, where you roll the top edge of the bag over and fold the two tabs inward to create a secure fold? Last week I found out that they have a name: tin tie! I ordered 100 tin tie bags for our guests to fill candy buffet sweets into. Of course I could not leave the bags plain, so I dressed them up in simple DIY style.
- Photoshop or similar editing program
- Avery 2″ x 4″ white mailing labels ($3.99 for 100 at Target)
- White tin tie bags ($17.69 for 100 1/2lb at Papermart
- Avery DesignPro (Free download here)
Steps: 1. Using Photoshop or similar editing program, design label and save to computer.
2. Using Avery DesignPro, select to “design from scratch” and follow the queue to select proper label size.
3. Open saved label design and fit to label size.
4. Print. (Make sure to increase number to 10 “number of copies” when the print screen pops up).
5. Peel label and stick to tin tie bag.
While I labeled 100 tin tie bags, Mr. Spring Roll took a nap with Gabriella.

Very nice. We’re doing something very similar to that except stamping a print on them instead of using labels. Good idea!

tin tie bags seem like an interesting option. I was just going to use little chinese takeout boxes but now my head is swimming in ideas.

Can you pick any design for the labels ?

Hmm…has anyone tried running these through the manual feed of a printer? Not sure if it would work or not

Good woman, I was going round in circles in my head over candy containers! Think will opt for stamping instead of labelling, though… I’m waaaay too much of a butterfingers for that! Cheers!

Was going back and forth on what kind of bags to use this just made up my mind :))

Those are awesome. I saw something like that previously on some other website and I think these came out so much nicer!!

These are great! Thanks for the idea. Do you think it will take a lot of candy to fill them at least half way?
