How to make coffee filter treat bags
This item was born out of a need to find simple, inexpensive, and green packaging for a line of beer-based soaps. I sought inspiration by walking around stores and checking out soap websites to get package and display ideas, but nothing felt right until that old adage “less is more” came to mind. Coffee filters were easy to work with, economical to buy, and, being fully recyclable, environmental.
Packaging always poses both opportunity and problem. It sets first impressions, and speaks to the quality and value of what is inside as much as does the product itself. Yet, it can also be expensive, wasteful, and all too often anti-environmental.
This durable, food-grade, and recyclable solution strikes the balance of elegance, price, and environmental consciousness. Using coffee filters offers a green option for attractively packaging small items and gift-ideal amounts of candy.
