1. Measure and draw a rectangle on the bag front. Draw the same-size rectangle on vellum and cut it out.
2. Position pressed flowers on the bag within the drawn rectangle. Thin crafts glue with water. Holding the flowers with tweezers, use a paintbrush to dab glue carefully onto the back side in just a few places. Press the flowers in place on the bag front and let the glue dry. Carefuly align and apply the adhesive-backed vellum.
