Project Instructions

Step 1 Pre-wash canvas tote.

Step 2 Cut off canvas handles.

Step 3 Use cardboard inside tote bag to keep paint from bleeding through to other side.

Step 4 Using the spray paint colors, create your galaxy pattern. Start with sections of black, then sapphire, then grape.

Step 5 Using the white spray paint squirt slowly to create a splatter effect such as stars or constellations would appear. Make sure to keep white color in sections, not all over, or you will lose the galaxy effect. Let paint dry.

Step 6 Cut leather strips approximately 1"x24".

Step 7 Decide on strap placement. Use leather hole punch to punch through leather and canvas tote where rivets will be used.

Step 8 Snap rivets together through leather and canvas tote.

Step 9 Use hammer and rivet setter kit to secure rivets.
