STEP 1 - DOWNLOAD DESIGNS
STEP 2 - ADJUST SIZE OF DESIGNS
You can adjust the size and alignment of the design to fit your desired look. I used a 6.25"x9.25" bag and wanted the large "LUCKY ME." design to print in the middle of the front of the bag and the smaller "LUCKY ME." design to print on the right corner of the backside. If you are using a different sized bag or would like the image sizes to be adjusted and are having difficulties, just let me know and I would be glad to help! For the sticker, I used a 1 inch circle punch, but the size of the sticker can also be adjusted.
STEP 3 - PRINT DESIGNS
To help feed your bag through the printer, you will need to cut a piece of card stock to be slightly smaller than your bag and place it inside. Since the bag is smaller than your standard 8.5" x 11" paper, it might be a good idea to cut a piece of paper to match the size of your bags and test it out first to see how you printer lines up the image.
If you are using the sticker to close the bags, you fill need to print the image on white labels. I used a use a full 8.5" x 11" sheet printing label and a 1 inch circle punch to cut it out, but you can also use labels that are precut and just line them up when printing.
STEP 4 - FILL BAGS WITH CANDY
You can fill your bag with any delicious treat you want, but I used gold foil chocolate coins to fit the St. Patrick's Day theme. If you don't have any of those, you can also use rolos, some lucky charms, or if you have the energy you can make these delicious key lime cake pops.
STEP 5 - PACKAGE FAVORS
Have fun with wrapping some green yarn around it or sealing the bags with the sticker. If you are displaying them for a party, it looks nice to have variations of bags with the stickers and yarn, and the amount of yarn you use on each.
That's it, you're done.. LUCKY YOU. ;)
