Project Instructions

Step 1 Cut piece of freezer paper a little larger than the size of the tote so it will overlap on all sides.

Step 2 On freezer paper, draw a 4"-4½" diameter circle on upper center of freezer paper. (To help, use plastic container lid or something comparable in size.)

Step 3 Refer to picture to position the remaining circles. Use templates to draw other circles on freezer paper measuring approximately 3½", 3¼", 2½" and 2¼".

Step 4 Use scissors to cut out drawn circles from freezer paper to create stencil.

Step 5 Position stencil on tote and iron waxy side down. Make sure edges of circles are well sealed.

Step 6 Place cardboard insert between layers of tote to keep paint from seeping through to other side.

Step 7 Test spray on paper towel and begin spraying the circles with the two colors. Spray one color or combine as desired. Let dry.

Step 8 Remove cardboard insert and freezer paper stencil.

Step 9 Use computer to print name in desired font in black ink onto copy paper. Enlarge to desired size to read across width of tote.

Step 10 Follow directions from ScreenIt™ for burning image to screen.

Step 11 Once the screen is ready to use, slip tote onto the foam base of the ScreenIt™ machine. Position screen onto tote and set in place.

Step 12 Using squeegee provided with ScreenIt™, apply Tulip Soft® paint as desired.

Step 13 Remove screen and wash screen immediately.

Step 14 Let tote dry.


Make sure copy paper quality is of a thinner, less expensive grade.
