You can download the file from Thingiverse. And while printing, take care to print a single layer at a high temperature i.e. about 270 degrees Celsius, to get a clear window.

7) Bag clip
You do not even need to confess your love for eating half or a quarter amount of snack from the snack packet and then wondering what to do with the remaining one?

So, use a bag clip that’ll let you pause easily while eating a snack. On the other hand, it’ll also let you start easily after a break. And also provide you the sheer convenience of traveling with your unfinished snack-pack. For printing the bag clip available on Thingiverse, you first need to download its 3D design file.
First things first: after you have managed to download the file, do not think that the work is over. Understanding the process of 3D printing a part or functional prototypes can be cleared-out after reading three easy steps that are: a) Obtaining a 3D design file of the object you wish to 3D print. b) Slicing that file. c) Uploading it on your 3D printer or to a 3D printing service provider.
So, no matter which one of these or all of these kitchen gadgets you wish to 3D print, you would have to go through this process.
