1. Cover the bag using Poppy Fields paper by Prima. Inking the edges before you attach the paper to the bag.

2. Cut several flowers from the Mother Bird paper. Don't worry about cutting exactly on the edges. Leaving a bit of brown gives the flowers

Helpful Tip: An easy way to get the perfect cover for your bag is to scan the bag before you start. Print it out on white cardstock to make a template
OR print it right on the back of your pattern paper. Simply cut on the lines and your paper will fit perfectly!
