Last weekend, while I was in Florida, the second Rock Paper Scissors Craft Mart happened! I was asked to make vendor gifts, and needed to make something that would still be super-fresh and awesome come Sunday. I opted to make my favorite coconut oil granola with dried strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and roasted coconut.
P.S. I’m totes selling baked goodness at the next one!
They needed 25, so I made 30 just in case. It turns out that a triple batch of this coconut oil granola is the perfect amount (with all the mix-ins). I stirred in the dried berries, coconut, and chocolate chips, and divided it up into large zip top bags. I weighed it all and divided it by 30 to ensure that I use the maximum amount of granola per bag! (Math, you guys. The only time I feel ok about it is with food.) I sewed some small vertical labels on each bag, zig-zag stitch style. Next time I’d make the top of the label long enough to fold over and then sew.
Have you guys ever used your sewing machine for packaging? If not, I totally recommend you give it a shot! It’s pretty simple, once you get the bobbin figured out. I always forget how to thread that jerk. There WERE a few casualties (crooked, what?!), but nothing I couldn’t redo. I hope everyone liked them!
