Project Instructions

Step 1 Insert waxed paper inside tote to keep paint from seeping through to other side.

Step 2 Squeeze paint in zigzag lines in a starburst design as shown, using a different color for each layer.

Step 3 Place paper (cut to size) over the wet paint and press evenly over the entire sheet with hands.

Step 4 Gently pull paper away from paint to reveal paper-pressed starburst. Let dry.

Step 5 Place crystals onto tote, coordinating crystal colors with paint colors.

Step 6 Pick each one up, squeeze a dot of adhesive underneath, then press crystal into glue. Let dry. Note: Using a heat tool to set crystals over paint will melt paint and ruin project. Gluing crystals in place will prevent this.


Let your imagination take you to many more possibilities for this burst of color. Choose red white and blue for a patriotic statement, or several shades of pink for a breast cancer awareness tote.
