With 12 hours to spare a couple of weeks ago, I helped the kids make stenciled tote bags for their end of the year teacher gifts! I asked on Instagram whether you wanted a tutorial and something like 98% said, ‘heck yeah.’ So… here it is!
I painted a bag! I bought this $6 bag (affiliate) weeks and weeks and weeks ago when there as probably snow still on the ground, and I was dreaming of sun and beach weather. And… here we are! The bag is from Michael’s personalize it collection and truthfully, I love it even without a little DIY flare! But that would make for a lame post so… I added a little sumthin’ sumthin’.
I told you I was on a crafting kick!!! If you’ve been in Michaels lately then you know they have a TON of items intended to be personalized… bags and hats and containers and ceramic vases. Truthfully, I liked the shapes of the vases and didn’t mind them plain ol’ white, but that wouldn’t be a very fun blog post so… I jazzed them up!
