Materials Needed to Make the Miniature Cellophane Packages

  • Iron - you may also want a metal spatula to use against the plastic if you don't have a teflon pressing sheet.
  • Teflon Pressing Sheet - to keep your iron from sticking to the cellophane.
  • Baking Parchment Paper - to keep the layers of cellophane from sticking together.
  • Scraps of Cellophane Food or Gift Packaging - If the cellophane has been used for food, wash the pieces well and allow to dry before using them for this project. You can also use cellophane sleeves for cards, stickers , ribbons and other materials. Look for a heat set seam on the package which indicates it is prepared for heat welding.
  • Contents for Your Packaging - this should be perfectly dry, and hopefully inert. There is a list of miniature junk food projects which has lots of the types of items found in cellophane packages.
  • Sharp Scissors or a Craft Knife and Cutting Board
