NOTE: When using painter's tape on paper, press the tape pieces on your clothing first to remove some of the tack. The tape will still stick, but is less likely to tear the paper when you remove it.

  1. Use painter's tape to mask off areas of the gift bag you want to paint.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Use a 3/4" flat brush to paint the message area with Lamp Black.

If you are unsure of letter spacing, it helps to stencil them on the paper first. This way you can cut and paste the letters, if necessary, and then use them as a reference on your project.
