Jazz up your bake sale by using a variety of tools from Fiskars.
Create signs, tags, labels and packaging for your bake sale goods.
Use the Fiskars SureCut Deluxe Craft Paper Trimmer (12”) and Micro-Tip Scissors (No. 5) to make simple food category signs. Print the food categories on cardstock and trim each to size with the SureCut Deluxe Craft Paper Trimmer (12”). Trim the ends of each banner with Micro-Tip Scissors. Mount a piece of patterned paper on cardstock and add the category banner on top of the rectangle. Glue a stick on the back of the sign.
To make a larger bake sale banner, use the Comfort Grip Rotary Cutter, 12 x 18 Cutting Mat and a 6 x 24.5 Acrylic Ruler. Measure and cut the banner design from a roll of paper with the rotary cutter, using the acrylic ruler as a guide. Cut out computer-generated lettering with the Micro-Tip Scissors and Fingertip Detail Knife; affix to the banner.
Create price tags with the XX-Large Lever Punch tag and Pop-Up Heart Punch. Embellish the tags with a dotted line stamp from the All Year Cheer Simple Stick Repositionable Rubber Stamp set.
Make toppers for snack bags by simply cutting a piece of paper the same width as the bag and folding it over the top of the bag. Attach the topper with a staple and add a heart price tag on top. Punch the hearts from cardstock with the Extra Large That’s Amore Squeeze Punch. Add a decorative trim to the bottom of the topper with the Scalloped Sentiment Border Punch.
To showcase food products in bags, use the Scallop Paper Edger to cut paper bags to size. Place a plastic bag with your food product inside the smaller paper bag. Add a heart price tag made with the Extra Large That’s Amore Squeeze Punch.
Using the Large That’s Amore Squeeze Punch, create heart price stickers by punching the shapes from a sheet of self-adhesive labels.
