DIY Download: Cello Bag Labels

A few weeks ago we asked you to vote on which inspiration board you think should inspire our next DIY download. Well, this board received the most votes so we’ve created this adorable DIY project with the same vintage homespun feel…

These labels are perfect for a sweet & simple at-home wedding, rehearsal dinner or bridal tea. Filling the bags with homemade treats would make them even more charming! Like our last DIY download, this project is really easy and affordable. Here’s how…

Tools: Shown above: (A) Cellophane food bags (FDA Approved). We used a 3.5″ x 2″ x 7.5″ gusset bag which you can get here – $8.00 for 25 bags.  (B) Ruler  (C) bone folder (D) x-acto knife (E) Ribbon – 1/4″ width works best  (F) 1/8″ Fiskars Hole Punch  (G) Martha Stewart decorative edge punch (not sure of the name of this particular design but they’re sold at Michaels).

Step 1: Using your color printer, print the free template on white cardstock (click on the link at the bottom of this post to download the template). Use the bone folder and ruler to score along the dotted “fold” line on the template.

Step 2: Trim out the labels using your ruler and x-acto knife. Be sure to use a cutting mat – it cushions the x-acto blade and saves your surfaces from nicks and scratches. Fold the label along the score mark you created with the bone folder. Pre-folding the label makes it much easier to apply later.

Step 3: Use the decorative edge punch to create the eyelet cutout on the front of the label.

Step 4: Cut a 12″ length of ribbon. Fill the cellophane bag with treats of your choice then fold down the top of the bag. You may need one or two folds, depending on the contents of the bag.

Step 5: Place the label on the bag – the folded top of the cello bag should be sandwiched between the font and back of the label. If the bag has a seam on one side, make sure it faces the back (same side as the yellow floral pattern on the label).

Step 6: Holding the label in place on the top of the bag, use your hole punch to punch two holes (use the small circles marked on the label as a guide). Make sure to punch all the way through both sides of the label and the bag.

Step 7: Thread the ribbon through the holes and tie so that the knot (or bow) is at the front of the label.

Step 8: After tying the ribbon, cut the ends of the ribbon at an angle for a finished look.

Display and enjoy!

In addition to the yellow, we’ve also included a bonus palette in the download based on this color combination which we think would also work well with the charming vintage theme.

We would love to see how our little creations are doing out there in the real world. Be sure to leave us a comment letting us know how you plan to use the labels, what you plan to put in the bags, how you’re going to display them…whatever…we want to know! If you’d like to share photos, feel free to email us at blog {at} betsywhite {dot} com…we’d love to hear from you!
