Use a plain gift bag any size (I used a small bag), a plastic soda bottle 16 oz., 20 oz. or 24 oz. that has "bumps" (for lack of a better word) on the bottom of the bottle. Use craft paint (any color) and you will need markers and/or paint pens. Put paint in a styrofoam plate and spread it out in a large circle, then dip the bottom of the soda bottle in the paint and gently press the painted soda bottle to the gift bag and lift straight up. That will become the petals of your flower. (On a large bag you could do several flowers in several colors.) After the paint has dried, you can use your thum or a circular object to make the center of the flower. After all the paint has dried, use permanent markers or paint pens to draw a stem and leaves to your flower (I don't know if mine shows up in the picture or not). Most importantly, have fun and be creative.
