How to Paint a Canvas Tote

I saw this idea on some one's blog a little while and I thought it was so cute!
I just wish I could remember who's blog I saw it on.
If you have a tutorial like this - leave me a comment so I can check it out and see if it was you!
and also so I can see all the other cute personalized totes out there!!
First: Gather your Supplies!
You will need:
  • A blank canvas tote
  • Spray paint
  • Contact paper
  • Scissors
  • A Design for your tote
    (I printed mine off my computer! There are millions of choices!)
Second: Trace your design onto your contact paper.
Third: Cut it out!
Fourth: Take the backing of the contact paper off
and stick it to your canvas tote.
Fifth: Take your Spray Paint and Spray away!
After the first side is dry, spray the other side.
Make sure you get the bottom and sides as well.

(I used the design I made, and cut it up and stuck it on the back side as well)
Sixth: Pull off the contact paper to see your design and
your done! Super Easy!



I use my bag for all my stitchery stuff!
I think it would be fun to paint a tote bright red and then
add a yellow ribbon flower.
There are lots of possibilities!!
