Prepare Bags

Firmly press snowflake stamp into black ink pad, center on muslin bag and press. For a darker appearance, hold down for at least 5 seconds. For a box that's 12" x 3", repeat to create eight bags. Designate two bags to each blend, and use alphabet letters to stamp the names above the snowflakes for easy identification.
