Favor Bags for Cookies

Where to buy and what size favor bags do you need for cookies?


I've been asked this question many times, so thought I'd share.

I purchase my favor bags at Gifts International.  The prices are great, but the shipping is a bit high so order a lot at a time!

I like the 1.2 mil super clear cello bags.  They're a great thickness to keep cookies fresh - even better than cookies on a platter covered with plastic wrap.

My bags are organized in plastic shoe bins, by size.


Sizes of bags that I purchase.....

The 2" bags are perfect for minis.....
2" x 4"
2"x 6"
2" x 12"

The larger bags for regular-sized cookies....
3" x 5"
3" x 8"
4" x 6"
4.625" x 5.75"
5" x 7"
5" x 10"


The sizes that I use the most are 2" x 4", 2" x 6", 3" x 5", 4" x 6", and 5" x 7".


I WISH that I could purchase 4" x 8" bags!  The 4" x 6" are often too short so I have to move up to a 5" wide bag.  I really, really want 4x8ers!

 If you know of somewhere to purchase bags of that size, please let me know in the comments!

  1. I buy most of my bags at PaperMart. I believe they have the size you need.

    3. Keep checking. They never stay out of stock for very long. I heat seal my bags and these work well.

  2. I received an email from Linda who alerted me to 4" x 2" x 9" gusseted bags at Nashville Wraps.

    These would be perfect when adding ribbon. Not sure about heat-sealing them because of the many layers of cello. Anyone with experience heat-sealing them? Thanks Linda!

  3. I buy my bags from gifts intl as well and always wish they had 4x7" or 4x8"!! Very same problem...great size for most of my cookies but too short a lot of times when tying with ribbon. I'll have to check out paper mart as well- thanks!

    1. Looks like the 4x8s are still out of stock. I've been buying the longer ones now at Gifts Int'l and just cutting them shorter.

  4. I use my foodsaver appliance to heat seal cello bags; I hold the seal for three seconds, cancel the seal function and then lift - If it's left to seal through the entire 'seal' automatic sequence, the bag melts too much.
