But there’s a really easy way to close a snack bag, and it takes just a few seconds! The result will be an airtight bag that will stay closed until you need more snacks. I’ll give you some step-by-step directions, or you can just go to the bottom of the post and watch the short video.

Step 2: Folding To The Middle

Next, with the folded part in the back, fold each side in towards the middle. For a bigger bag, the sides will meet in the middle. For a smaller bag, they’ll overlap a bit.
