Project Instructions

Step: 1

Cut a piece of cardboard to fit inside tote.

Step: 2

Remove star stencils from Everyday Sticky Fabric Stencil™ packaging. Place star stencils where shown on tote then run a fingernail along inside edges to prevent paint seepage. Note: For the three-star stencil, use only one of the stars from design at a time, according to size desired and location on tote. Once paint has been added, remove stencil and place in another location, choosing a different-sized start.

Step: 3

Add pieces of low-tack tape around outside edge of stencils to prevent accidentally painting over edge.

Step: 4

Squeeze small puddles of Royal Blue, Crimson Red and Sunshine Yellow Soft Fabric Paint™ and Leaf Green Slick 3D Fashion Paint™ onto foil. Use scissors to cut wedge sponge in half lengthwise then in half again for a smaller sponge. Tap a flat end of sponge into paint then tap off excess on foil. Pounce Sunshine Yellow into large star making sure not to go past outside edge of stencil. Stencil in smaller stars with colors shown in photo. Carefully remove stencils and tape and reposition on bag, then repeat step for additional stars. Let dry.

Step: 5

Start flow of Leaf Green Slick on paper towel using an even pressure on bottle for a smooth line. Use pencil to lightly write name on tote, then trace over lines with Leaf Green paint. Use White Slick 3D Fashion Paint™ to draw a smaller star inside some of the stars stenciled on bag. Refer to photo. Let dry.

Step: 6

Follow label instructions for care of tote.


Paint on two thin coats then one thick one for a cleaner edge. Keep tip of 3D paint bottle clean for a smooth line.
