All you need is to add a little love to your tote. By creating your own stencil you can paint on any message or graphic you want!

  • Exacto Knife
  • Cutting Mat
  • Printed Message
  • Contact Paper

How to make it

Step 1: Select and print your graphic.

Step 2: Tape down the edges of your paper to ensure it doesn't move. With an exacto knife cut out graphic from contact paper.

Step 3: Peel off the backing of the contact paper so that the sticky side of the stencil is exposed. Place the stencil on the bag, getting rid of any air bubbles and making sure the stencil lies flat.

Step 4: Carefully paint in the stenciled area with a small brush.

Step 5: Remove the stencil and touch up with a small brush. Let dry completely.

Enjoy your tote!

Hello, I'm Jen. I'm a graphic designer by day, DIY-er by night. In addition to design, I'm passionate about hand-lettering and can make to make just about anything from cut paper. When I'm not making things, you'll most likely find me doing yoga or taking a well deserved nap.
