Folding Parchment Bags

Decorating Bags Parchment Triangles are easy to fold into a convenient "throw-away" bag. Made of grease-resistant vegetable parchment paper, available in 12 in. and 15 in. sizes.


Step 1: Place Triangle

Note that the points of the triangle have been labeled A, B, C in the photo. Place the triangle on a flat surface with point B facing you.

Step 2: Curl

Curl point A up and under, bringing it toward you until points A and B meet. The curled edge from point A should lie on top of the edge between C and B as shown.

Step 3: Align Points

Hold points A and B together with your left hand, picking up point C with your right. Wrap point C around to meet points A and B in back. All 3 points align to form 1 sharp point, which forms the bag's cone.

Step 4: Slide into Position

Hold the bag with both hands, thumbs inside, and slide points A and C in opposite directions to make the upside down "W" as shown.

Step 5: Fold & Notch Bag

Fold the points of the bag down into the bag. Tear 2 notches along folded edge and fold notch down. Tape the outside seam of the bag if desired.

Step 6: Tip without Coupler

To use a decorating tip without a coupler, cut 3/4 in. off the end of the bag, then drop the tip in, narrow end first. Don't be concerned if the tip doesn't fit snugly. The icing will hold it in place.

Step 7: Tip with Coupler

To use a tip coupler, drop the coupler base, narrow end first, into the bag and push it down as far as you can. Holding the coupler and bag together in place with one hand, twist on the ring. When secure, tear away the tip of the parchment bag.

Step 8: Tip with Coupler - Add Decorating Tip

Unscrew ring, position the decorating tip on the coupler and replace the ring, locking the tip into place.
