Updated wrappers

These are Rolled Gold Pretzel bags. I painted one on the front and one on the back. I heated them all on the unpainted side. The small bit is the strip of sealing on the bottom of the bag.

The ice cream wrappers bubbled flatter than the pretzel bag which was much harder to control. It just wanted to curl into a ball. I like the ice cream wrapper much better, easier to handle and the end result is much more vibrant.


  1. My question--even though the texture & color on these are great, how are you going to use them??

  2. is the resulting texture soft enough to stitch into? if you can, would it be soft enough for hand stitching as well as machine stitching?

  3. These are great -- I'm going to have to eat some ice cream....
