go on ebay- uniquepacking is the seller will have to go into advanced search and enter name..but they have every size bag you could use. I have used them for years for TONS of bags- I package everything I sell...and they will combine shipping- but keep in mind the box will be very heavy

I measure the finished item then find a bag to fit. make sure you have some extra room if its a 3d item...usually if I order the wrong size, I can use it for something sometime...then decide if you want to add a topper or just leave it plain - you will need extra height if you are adding topper. They also have ones with hang tabs on them if you want to display hanging things. I believe if it has the letter p on it, then the adhesive is on the bag rather than the flap which I like, but not all sizes come like that. I prefer that on the card size bags, the rest really don't matter

No I don't think they do..you can look in the gallery on here for packaged items, I know there are several threads that show some great stuff.


500 Pcs 5x7 O Clear Cookie Candy Bakery Poly Cello Cellophane Bags | eBay
this is one of the listings, not sure if it will help or not..but on the advanced search bar on the right side of the ebay home screen (or top) scroll down to almost the bottom and there is a section to look up things by seller..click that and enter uniquepacking

Thanks for the link to the E-Bay seller. I did a quick look and found a list of sizes so this link might help the OP:

Bags Size Chart items in uniquepacking store on eBay!

I too prefer the adhesive on the bag instead of the flap and couldn't remember the place where that was available. I want some for the HYCCT Challenges and for craft-fair sales (I hope to make cards over the winter and participate in my first sales in 2014 - never had enough space to store supplies/finished products before!)


Happy Crafting!
