Default How do you bag your items?

I'm doing a show in a couple weeks and wondered how you ladies bag your items after someone as bought something from you? Do you put it in a cute bag with your business card...or do you just hand it over after taking payment? Any cute ideas out there?

I use the loot bags that are sold in packages for birthday parties. There are some really cute girly ones out there. Then I keep a few bigger gift bags for larger purchases too. And one fun thing I always buy a few boy print bags and when the little boys come in with moms and sisters I give them my card in a boy bag and it is sweet to see how happy it makes them. (obviously age 5 and under, I don't think a 12 yr old boy would care less for a card in a bag!)

I buy the cute clear celo bags as well so that you can see through the bag (it helps with free advertising as well at the craft show ) you can find really cute bags at walmart, target, or even the dollar stores 20 for $1.00 most times. I put a plastic rubber band ( you can get these at walmart in the hair section or even the dollar store too to close the bag up that has curly ribbon with a bussiness card already hole punched and attached to the ribbon and band so it looks like a little good bad...and gift bags for the larger purchases as well

I got a large pack of white paper bags at Sam's. I put my card in one and small bows go in there. If they buy something bigger, I use tee-shirt bags (also from Sam's). It is not worth the extra money to me to make my bags cuter with ribbon and such right now. I would rather put money into ribbon and such for my bows.

I use my business cards to clip the flowers or clippies to. That way they have to see it when they take them off to use. I just have hot pink solid colored bags that I use...nothing fancy but a little bit more fun then a plain white "thank you bag"

I use lunch bags with my business card attached. An idea from someone on here. I stapled it upside down so when I fold down the top it is right side up. I used white med sized trash bags for tutus. I cut a hole in the middle of the bottom of the bag and put the hanger through it. I bought white children's hangers at Target 10 for $1 so I am ok with giving the hanger. Next time I will look for clear bags.

I use white paper bags ( Lunch Bags ) and put an adress label with my logo and etsy and facebook on it.I fold the paper bag over than put the sticker over it so it stays closed.

this!
I don't even bother with the paper bags, just use t-shirt bags and most of the time, they are thankful that they have a handle- I personally had getting bags that are hard to carry...
