"One of the easiest project I made to date. I just printed a bag template and traced it on a black cardstock using a white pencil. Then I prepared the necessary embellishments and cut out my papers first. I opted to adhere the papers and embellishments while the bag lays flat instead of adhering the bag in shape. You can see the step by step in the Snapguide tutorial provided." ~Donna
