instructions

  1. Lay the canvas bag flat on your work space.
  2. Apply vertical strips of tape to the bag leaving ¼” space between each piece.
  3. Apply Imperial or Castle to your stencil brush and wipe the brush on a paper towel so there is hardly any paint left on the brush. This is called “offloading.”
  4. Using a dabbing motion, paint in the areas between the tape.
  5. Remove the tape and let dry.
  6. Wrap a small piece of tape around the handle of the wooden spoon. Using a flat brush, paint the area below the tape using Castle. Remove the tape and let dry.
  7. Fill the bag with the dry ingredients and a hand-written card of your favorite recipe. Tie jute and greenery around the opening of the canvas bag to decorate.
