    Here are the supplies you'll need!

    Step 2

    Start by taking your napkin so that the point will stick up out of the bag, and fold the ends in so that the napkin is slightly smaller than the width of the bag. Then slide the napkin into the bag so that it sticks out slightly.

    Take your two smaller bags, and write “salt” on one and “pepper” on the other. These are SO ADORABLE. Fill the pouches with a 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. THEN fold the top edge of the bags down so that one is longer than the other so that you can see the writing on both.

    Slide the back fold of the salt and pepper pouches over the edge of the envelope, and use the clothespin to clip the salt and pepper bags to the larger bag. It’s starting to take shape!

    Slide in your straw and disposable cutlery, and find a height that works for you for everything to peek out of the bag. Then fold the bottom of the bag towards the back to keep the silverware, straw and napkin peeking out of the envelope at just the right height. Almost done!

    This step is optional, but I think it adds an element of cuteness. Cut a piece of twine long enough to go around the entire envelope horizontally while having enough room to tie a bow. Then actually wrap the paper bag with the twine, tie your bow and secure the twine underneath the clothespin.

    You can set one at each place setting, or stand them up in a cute container for your guests to grab along the way as they get their food.
