Once you have all your supplies gathered, You’ll want to test your stamp on a scrap piece of paper. Gently ink your stamp and made a test print on the paper, just so you can get a feel for how it stamps and how much pressure you want to apply. Once you are comfortable stamping on the paper. It’s time to grab your bag.

If your bag is really wrinkly, you may want to give it a quick press with the iron, so that you have a smooth stamping surface. Lay your bag on a hard surface. Ink your stamp up once again (not too much ink!) and then line your stamp up where you want it hovering over the bag. you want to stamp straight up and down and gently press your stamp onto the bag and then lift the stamp off. You don’t need to rock your stamp, or put your full body weight into it. If you find you are did not use enough pressure on your first bag, you can run your finger over the stamp when it is placed on the bag for a little added pressure.

In order to make your newly stamped image permanent, the next step is to heart set your bag. I like to put a little scrap of fabric on top of the bag, and then press the iron on that scrap fabric. This will heat set your design, as well as make your bag super flat if it wasn’t already.
