Decorate Cartons and Bags

Press the rubber stamp evenly into the ink pad so ink fully covers the raised areas of the stamp (Image 1). Press the stamp down evenly on the paper to transfer the design (Image 2).

Create A Zone

Offering cartons and bags in a variety of sizes is not only functional, it's eye pleasing. Stack a small table with containers in an area that's conveniently close to the food to make it easy for guests to load up with delicious leftovers.

Finishing Touches

Keep string and scissors handy so guests can secure bags and cartons before leaving.
