Coffee Bag Sandwich Wrap

Coffee Bag Sandwich Wrap

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

This simple gift, a reusable sandwich wrapper made from the sturdy material of a coffee bag, will help Dad go green.


  • Empty coffee bag
  • Soap and water
  • Baking soda
  • Scissors
  • Self-adhesive hook-and-loop dots


Start with an empty coffee bag. To eliminate the coffee smell, swirl some warm, soapy water around inside the bag, rinse it out, then fill the bag with hot water and 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Hold the bag closed and shake the mixture, then let it sit for half an hour. Rinse the bag. If there's still a strong coffee odor, repeat the baking soda wash.

Cut the bottom from the bag, open the side seam, and dry the bag. Cut it into a 10-inch square. Attach self-adhesive hook-and-loop dots at two opposite corners of the square, one on the front and the other on the back of the bag. If your bag has a freshness valve, use your wrap with the inside facing out so that the sandwich won't get dented.
