Step one - Stamp the first wolf near the bottom of the tan card centrally.
Step two - Stamp the wolf onto a post-it note, cut around it carefully then palce over the stamped image.
Step three - Now stamp the wolf cut slightly overlapping the first wolf to the right.
Step four - Mask off the wolf cub and stamp a third wolf, which also needs to be masked off.
Step five - Begin to stencil a wooded scene for the wolves, starting near the top of the card and working down.
Step six - When you are happy with the design remove the masks from the wolves.
Step seven - Now tear down the image so it is slightly smaller than the gift bag you are working with. Then cut the netting and the gold card slightly larger than this image. Finally cut the black card slightly larger still.
Step eight - Attach the image to the netting and the gold card using the eyelets. Then mount this centrally onto the black card.
Step nine - To complete mount this onto the front of the back centrally.
