Tips & Tricks - Filling Cellophane Bags

The smallest cellophane bag size is great for quick and easy gifts such as workshop door prizes like these ones.

At just $5.50 for a pack of 50 with the flowers using up scrap cardstock the most expensive part of the gift is the jaffas. 

However being only 2.5cms wide they are a bit fiddly to fill so I was very pleased when Sharlene, my team leader, told me about this trick.  Thanks Sharlene.

Clear cellophane bags never photograph well so I hope you can see that I've taken another scrap of cardstock about 2.5 x 7 cms, folded it in half and used it to both hold the bag open and to act as a funnel to get the Jaffas into the bag.
