Embossed Gift Bags

4. Heat. Use the electric embossing tool to heat the powder until it melts, forming an embossed design. You can also hold the stamped design over a toaster or the eye of an electric stove to melt the powder, but the tool is faster and more effective. Repeat this procedure to decorate the bag with as many images as you like.
- Stamp bags with stars of different sizes and in different colors.
- To close the bags, use a star-shaped hole punch to make holes for ribbon or a gilded twig. Or use sealing wax and a seal to secure the bag.
