    Step 1

    Using a scoring board, score a 1 1/2" x 12 " paper strip for your florets

    Step 2

    Fold back and forth, and assemble your floret. NOTE: Refer to my post "The Beautiful Floret" on the FotoBella Blog to see a step by step tutorial on how to assemble a Floret.

    Step 3

    Assemble the florets and add buttons at center.

    Step 4

    Next, cut out and glitter some stars.

    Step 5

    Cut 3 rectangles measuring 4 1/2 x 6 3/4 from coordinating patterned paper.

    Step 6

    Adhere to bags

    Step 7

    Using Scor-Tape, adhere 2 pieces of patterned paper together, creating a sleeve for the bag. The papers measure 5 1/2 x 5 3/4 (front) and 5 1/2 x 6 1/4 (back)

    Step 8

    Ink the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink. You can find this at
