I used the following manufacturer product samples:
Fairfield - Metallic Oly*Fun™multi purpose craft material - Silver
aluminor™ faux quilted craft material - Gold
Plaid Ent - Folk Art Multi Surface paint - Charcoal Black
Mixed Media Foam Applicator
Fabric Creations™ Block Printing Mat
Fabric Creations Block Printing Stamp - Elephant
Therm O Web - Fabric Fuse™
and supplies and tools I already had on hand:
Adhesive back jewels, 24" gold ric rac trim
Craft knife and metal ruler, or paper trimmer
Step 1. Stamp the elephant image onto silver Oly*Fun as follows. Squeeze black paint onto a disposable plate then dip the foam applicator into the paint. Pounce lightly on a clean area of the plate to spread the paint evenly on the applicator.
Step 2. Dab the paint evenly onto the stamp. Place the fabric on top of the foam mat then press the stamp onto the fabric. I received 12"x12" pieces of Oly*Fun, so I stamped the first image at the center, about 4" from the bottom edge then an image on either side.
Step 3. I created a border by cutting 1" above the images and 1" below using a craft knife and ruler and the grid on my work table mat as a guide.
TIP: If using a paper trimmer, always cut from the back of the craft material.
Step 4. Glue the gold trim along the top and bottom edges of the border, then glue to a 12"x12" piece of gold aluminor. Embellish the elephant images with strips of adhesive backed jewels.
Step 5. Trim the aluminor along the faux quilted design as shown in the photograph, then adhere to the front of the bag.
Enjoy! Y'all come back now...........
KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON CRAFTING!
