Anyone know where to get bags for putting candy in?

We were thinking of giving nerds as favors (the candy, not the people). Ideally we'd like to present the nerds more nicely than in just their regular box.

One option is to wrap the box of nerds in some fabric or paper. Another option is to put the nerds into a different container such as a bag or box of some sort and then tie it with a ribbon.

Does anyone know a good solution for this? Is there some store where I can pick up bags or boxes ideal for holding a small amount of candy?

Thanks!

How about clear cellophane bags, tie them with a red or pink ribbon and have a monogrammed sticker with your wedding date on the front or something?!

Yes, do try www.papermart.com like mzjoym suggests. They're a great resource. Also, it may sound odd, try a Dollar Store. The have all kinds of gift wrap stuff, boxes, papers, cellophane bags for very inexpensive. It can be hit and miss, but I've found some great items!

Martha Stewart has a new line at Michael's. She has some adorable gift bags and boxes. I used them for our rehearsal dinner. I put gourmet caramel popcorn in them and people loved them! Meg http://papercrafts.michaels.com/

For sure Oriental Trading has the best prices on bags, and you don't have to buy Bulk for thier pricing.

michaels has cello bags too, $3.99-$5.99 for a 100 if you need smaller ones than the ones on oriental trading.

Oriental trading has clear cellophane bags: 50 for $4. I am using them for my favor I am sealing them on my food sealer and then putting a ribbon through the top. I am probably putting a sticker of some sort on the front.
