Project Instructions

Step 1 Place waxed paper inside tote to keep paint from seeping through to other side.

Step 2 Use pencil to trace scallop pattern on tote to create five scalloped stripes.

Step 3 Squeeze a generous puddle of White paint onto palette. Mix a few drops of yellow paint into White until you get the desired pastel yellow.

Step 4 Apply pastel yellow paint to the top of the tote to create the first scallop stripe.

Step 5 Repeat Steps 3 and 4 with the remaining colors to complete the scallop stripes. Let dry.

Step 6 Squeeze dimensional paint along each line of scallops. Let dry.

Step 7 Set iron to Cotton, with steam. Hold iron a few inches above the dimensional paint until the paint puffs up. Continue across the entire bag until all dimensional paint is puffed up.

Step 8 Tie ribbon in a bow on the handle to complete.


Don’t stop with painting just the front of the tote! You can wrap the design around to the back for a totally painted tote.
