Press tote to remove wrinkles.
Cut piece of freezer paper approximately the size of the tote.
Refer to photo and use pencil to very “roughly” sketch out large flower for basic outside and center shapes.
Using fingers, carefully tear outside shape of flower to create a stencil. Fit the outer part of the flower cutout onto tote and use iron to press down.
Tear out center part of flower and place in center of already adhered flower stencil. Iron on center stencil piece.
Pour puddles of the Neon Orange Soft® paint and Neon Yellow Soft® paint onto palette.
Dip paintbrush into the Neon Orange and use wide strokes to paint open areas of flower, leaving a few streaks unpainted. Paint unpainted streaks with Neon Yellow. Let dry.
Remove center stencil. Use Neon Green 3D Fashion Paint to draw swirls in center of flower. While paint is still wet, sprinkle on the Neon Green glitter. Shake off excess glitter.
Use Neon Orange 3D paint to add random streaks emerging from center of flower in petals. Let dry.
Outline outside of flower with Tulip® Fashion Glitter™ Bond and sprinkle Neon Purple glitter on the outline. Shake off excess glitter. Let dry.
Press T-shirt to remove wrinkles.
Trace circle pattern with pencil onto freezer paper. Cut out to make circle stencil.
Lay circle stencil down on tee and use sponge to dab in Glitter Bond inside circle. You can use the same stencil moving around tee; yet make sure edges are sealed when applying glue.
Starting at top of T-shirt to bottom of tee, sprinkle on glitter in the glue circles in the following order: Neon Orange, Neon Purple and Neon Pink. Shake off excess glitter. Let dry.
Tie neon orange ribbon into bow.
Use Aleene’s® Fabric Fusion® to adhere bow to bottom of V-neck on T-shirt. Use safety pin to pin until dry.
For the tote: when tearing the freezer paper to create the flower stencil, you can start by using scissors, for more precise results.
For the T-shirt: you can create as many circle stencils as you want and iron on each one for exact placement.
