Project Instructions

Step 1  Insert a piece of cardboard inside the tote to provide a stable surface and prevent ink from seeping through to back of tote.

Step 2  Color the face of the sugar skull as desired.

Step 3  Use Black ink to draw designs around the rest of the tote. Doodle your favorite designs of flowers, leaves, swirls, etc.

Step 4  Next, add the darker colors inside the edges of each design, then fill in with lighter colors. This will give your work more dimension!

Step 5  Fill in areas with more swirls and dots.


When doodling, outline designs in black marker before adding color for a cleaner look.
