Step 4: Add Shimmer
  1. Lightly spray butterfly with adhesive spary and sprinkle shimmer. While keeping the sprinkle of shimmer light, make sure all of the adhesive is covered with shimmer so that you don't end up with a sticky finish.
Glue Butterfly in Place and Tie Ribbon.
Step 5: Glue Butterfly in Place and Tie Ribbon.
  1. Glue the butterfly onto the bag.
  2. Tie ribbon on one of the handles to complete the,'You Are Very Special' look for the recipient of your gift.
  3. If you can't find bags with handles, just fold over the top of the bag and using a double punch, punch holes through the top.
  4. Thread the ribbon through the holes. Even a plain paper bag looks vey effective decorated in this manner.
  5. Some people make up 6 or so bags and give them as the gift. They are so handy for people to have, at the ready, when special occasions come along.
  6. For a manly look, google, google images and choose a male template to colour.
