  1. Cut out the gift bag using an SVG Attic cut file; assemble it together.
  2. Using the SVG cut files waves, anchor, and life preserver, cut out the various shapes from prints in the Coastal stack and solids in the brights stack.  Assemble the different layers accordingly and use them to decorate the outside of the bag. 
  3. Add a length of twine around the outside of the life preserver and adhere it in place.  Braid another length of twine and attach it to the top of the anchor. 
  4. Embellish the bag with a few more buttons. Cut out the word “ENJOY” (found inside the Coastal stack); layer it with a contrasting print in the stack, and then adhere it in place. 
  5. Add a gift inside the bag and share with the desired recipient.
