personalize it stamped heart tassel tote

Step 1
Project Note: The Loops & Threads™ scissors are for adults only and should be used by adults only, where the step is noted for "ADULT". Kids are encouraged to use the Creatology™ scissors.

Step 2
Cut two pieces of the adhesive backed foam 3"x3". Stick one of the squares to the front of the other square, so the foam is now double thick. Trace the heart shape onto the top foam piece and cut it out. Then, cut out a strip of foam about 1"x5". Peel the backing off both the strip and the heart. Stick the heart to the center ½" of the strip. Now, fold each end over and stick it to itself. Pull each side back. This will create a handle for you to hold onto when stamping the heart onto your tote. 
Step 3
Hold the handle of the stamp and, using the foam brush, spread red paint onto the stamp, then press it onto the tote, pressing the heart down with your other hand to make sure your paint will transfer to the tote and lift straight up, away from the tote. Repeat this step until you have several hearts stamped onto your tote. Let dry. 
Step 4
ADULT: Make one red, one white and one blue tassel. To make a tassel, wrap the yarn 20-50 times around the palm of your hand. Cut the yarn from the skein. 
Step 5
ADULT: While the yarn is still wrapped on your hand, thread a 12" piece of yarn through the loops wrapped around your hand, and tie a knot. Then gently slide the wrapped yarn off of your hand, careful not to disrupt the loops. Cut open the loops at the opposite end with scissors. 
Step 6
ADULT: Cut one more piece of yarn in the same color, about 12" long, and wrap it several times around the yarn, about 1" below the knot at its top. Knot this piece and trim away any excess. Trim the tassel so the ends are even. Each tassel should be approximately 4" long. 
Step 7
Tie the tassels onto the handle of the tote.
