ClosingDisposable and Reusable:
The best way I have found to close these types of bags is with rubber bands. You can use any rubber bands, but the small rubber bands that are included in the Cookie Kits are the perfect size for sealing up bags. They make a tight seal without having to wind the band around the bag a bunch of times. After you've filled your bag, gather up the top and fold over. Take a rubber band and secure it tightly over the folded section of the bag.
There really isn't a super-secure way to close parchment bags, but here are a couple of methods that work fairly well.
1. Twist the top closed.
2. Fold the top down, fold the two sides in, and finally fold the top down one more time.
