Use the punch in an upper corner of a red bag that’s folded flat. Continue punching down and across the bag.
Print star templates to make larger stars. Trace templates in random places along hole-punched "Milky Way," and cut them out with craft knife.
Open a red bag and line it with a white bag for contrast. Fill bottom with 1 inch of sand or stones, and put a votive or pillar candle set in a glass holder in place at the bottom.
