DIRECTIONS:

Print and cut heart pattern. Pin the heart patterns onto your fabric. Cut a heart for each bag. Cut chipboard to fit inside each bag to avoid bags being glued closed. Apply a small amount of glue to back of a heart. Center on bag and roll the brayer across the heart for a smooth seal. Repeat for each bag. Let dry 30 minutes before removing chipboard.
