1. Choose the bag shape you want to use. I found this one in the Silhouette store. Use a 12×12 sheet of vellum to cut your bag.

2. After your bag pieces are cut use a pencil to mark another sheet of vellum to fit on the front of your bag.

3. Use your sewing machine to stitch the measured piece onto the front of your bag. Only stitch three sides so you can add in your confetti later.

4. Now you can fold along the perforated lines to start putting your bag together.

5. Use a clear drying adhesive to add to the tabs of your bag once it's folded and hold them in place as they dry.

6. Use a hole punch to make small circles from scrap pieces of paper. I used the Stitched 6×6 Paper Pad and used some scrap pieces that I had leftover from other projects.Tutorial 6
7. Drop the punched circles and the heart shape from the Stitched Bits pack in your pocket and then finish stitching the last side.

8. Now you can add one of the rub-ons, transparent accent & phrase stickers, and Thickers heart to the front of your bag to complete the sentiment.
