The Inspired Notebook

I think it must be some kind of natural instinct that makes us crave Carbs when the temperature outside starts to cool down. I just love the aroma of bread baking in our home. If you feel the same, join me for a simple tutorial on how to package your fresh baked breads to give as a heart warming gift.

Baked Fresh Packaging:
  • You'll need various sizes of clear bags, you can find these at your local craft supply store
  • I like to line the smaller packages with craft paper or wax paper for that "local bakery" look
  • Tea stain a few doilies by dipping them in a cup of tea and drying on newspaper overnight
  • Add a Fall Time Pennant as a gift tag over a doily and wrap around your loaf with bakers twine
  • For a large loaf die cut a large label from scrapbook paper and a small label from white card stock with the Labels Framelits using your Sizzix die cutting machine
  • Stamp a fall leaf from the Gently Falling Stamps onto the small label 
  • Simply adhere with tape to the large clear bag

I can't wait to see what you are creating this fall! Please share a link with me to your project on Facebook, Twitter, or in the comments below.

  2. Oh and is that homemade bread? :) It looks super yummy! especially with that sweet packaging!

    1. Thanks,I use a bread machine for the large loaves and the oven works fine for smaller loaves. I recommend an electric knife for cutting the bread too, much easier than a standard bread knife. One of those in the image wasn't homemade, I can only bake so much at once LOL, but I wanted to share ways to package it's square size too!
