I choose the oval for my shape but you can choose any shape that you would like. The rounded shapes work best later on in the project.

Next change the line width to the 3pt double line. This will make your shape stand out when cut.

This small bottle of glue comes in handy for this project. It came in a craft kit and all I have to do is add more glue when it gets empty.

work 057

Add a small line of glue around 1/3 of the edge.

work 058

Press the streamers down pleating as you go. The pleats might loosen a little but it will work out when you place the label on the bag.

Overlap slightly at the end to keep from having a gap.

Add Glue around the ruffle and in the center and adhere to your bag.
