Create your own Floral Monogrammed Treat Bags with Silhouette's Tattoo Paper
Can you tell that Monograms make me happy? And tattoo paper? Tattoo paper is my newest love – it’s so versatile – you can apply it to a variety of surfaces without much effort or prep.

Step 4: I used the Replicate tool to “fill the page”, then printed onto tattoo paper
