Stencil Favour Bags

Stencil Favour Bags

Nato Welton

Use stencils to personalise your favour bags and
upgrade a simple paper bag into a work of art.

Choose the stencil you want to use. Place it on
to the paper bag and, with a stencil sponge, dab the paint
over the cut-out area. Once dry, fold the top of the bag over and
make two holes in the fold with a hole punch. Fill the bag with
sweets and finish by threading the ribbon through the holes and
tying a bow.
