Making Vacuum Sealer Bags?

Silver Post Medal for All Time! 364 Posts

How do I cut a straight line to make bags using the foodsaver roll or any other vacuum bag roll? I have the roll cutter in the machine, but don't want to have to swap rolls in and out every time I need a different size.

Fold the roll back on itself to the size bag you need. Do this on the table. Take a sharp knife and slice at the fold.


By the time you do this the machine is hot enough to seal the bottom. Put in food and seal the top.

Folding the roll of bags back on its self is what I've done for years! Be sure that sides are lined up then cut it with a letter opener the kind that has a blade at the bottom of the V. I also use the letter opener to open a bag (same as above) fold the sealed end back over its self) then open with the letter cutter!! WORKS AWSOMELY!

Paper trimmers are great if you are trying to cut a large quantity of bags out of rolls. I've been selling vacuum packaging equipment for years now and I usually just tell people to seal the roll where you want it first and then perforate the edges.


Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be happy to help!
