I had to paint a white square first so the teal would show up better and pop. You can skip this step if you have a lighter bag although it does help. I used the bigger brush for the square.

Go a head and write the name or phrase you want to use in the square. Use any font you like. You can find pictures of fonts on google.

Next paint with the gold little flippy messy lines. This will go under the flowers. Of you mess something up wipe it off carefully, paint it teal and try again! Like I had to :).
