Next, cut the shape out of the paper. It doesn't matter if it's just plain bond paper as this is just a guide for you to create a cutout.

Plate the shape that you cut from the printable on top of a colored paper of your choice and get tour pencil or pen. In this example, a blue glossy paper was chosen. These types of paper look better than regular colored paper.

Now, if you have a glossy type of paper you might want to place the template on the other side because it is easier to draw on that surface. Then trace the shape with a pen or pencil, otherwise just trace on any side.

After you have traced the shape, carefully follow the lines and cut. And you should have a nice windmill like object in front you. Good job!

Step 2

Place a Treat

Next, place a treat on the center of the plain side of the glossy paper. If it's a simple colored paper then any side would do. You are close to finishing the gift bag!
