 Click HERE to open the “Gobble Til You Wobble” design.

Click the print icon.  This will bring the design up in a different window.  Right click to rotate the design so that is oriented upside down.

Click the print icon at the bottom of the page which will bring up the print systems dialog box.

Orient the bag face down with the bottom of the bag going into the printer first.  See picture below.

Once the bag is in the proper position, click print.

It’s that easy!  If you want to reattach the handles, hot glue them back in place.  Or you can fold over the top of the bag and tape down.
