How to Make a Taco Bell Mild Sauce Packet Costume

1. Decide how big you want the overall packet to be (length: should be from your knees to shoulders, width: measure shoulder to shoulder and add a foot).
2. Whatever that measurement is, cut out two pieces of fabric that size.
3. Cut 4 strips that measure 4” x 12”. You will 2 together to make the straps of the costume.
4. Cut a zig zag at the top to create the top of the actual sauce packet.
5. Place the front of the fabric together and sew the sides so that the top and bottom are still open.
6. Try it on to make sure it fits and then make a mark where you want the straps to go.
7. Take the costume off and sew the straps on.
8. Find the font used for “Border Sauce Mild,” and “Think Outside the Bun,” online, type it up and then cut out the letters.
9. Pin the letters to fusible fabric and cut them out (make sure they are backwards so when you iron them to the front, the letters aren’t backwards).
10. Iron the letters on packet in the appropriate places.
11. Cut out a rectangle for the quote to go on and iron that to fusible fabric.
12. Find Taco Bell logo online and print it on an iron-on transfer.
13. Pick a phrase that you want to go on the front. I used, “Eat, Drink and Be Scary!”
14. Type up the phrase you selected and the ingredients information (from an actual sauce packet) and print them on an iron-on transfer
15. Iron the iron-on transfers to the costume in the appropriate places.

    the costume I made wasn't like a "dress" like this instructables costume.. I made holes in the sides of the packet for my 1 year to stick his arms through .. Resembling more of a taco bell packet.. Another added touch that we did was paint his face and sppiked his hair orange! .. It makes for a better effect! :)

    I'm so irritated! I made this costume for my 1 year old.. I always try to find original costumes for my children.. And I searched high and low all over the internet to find a taco bell packet costume.. And could only find the college humor guys w/ sweats.. I wanted something that actually resembled a taco bell packet! .. So I went to a local fabric store.. Found some AMAZING material and thought.. I want this material more stiff a plyable... So I got the fusible material.. Which I thought was oh so ool.. Went to walmart and bought iron on transfers.. And voila! We had an ORIGINAL taco bell packet costume! I just happened to have my taco bell packet search still on google.. And I happened to click on and what pops up?!? "how to make a taco bell packet costume".. On instructables.. Blah! As easy as it was to make... I still thought I had an original costume since I couldn't find anything on the internet for it.. And it would have been awesome to get the font.. I ended up having to hand draw the message out.. Bc I didn't have the font! :( all in all it was a great costume.. And how crazy is that.. That I made it before it was posted on instructables.. To a "T" as explained.. Minus font.. Weird..
