I love tote bags! I like funny movies, like Elf too!
Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins...and...You're an Elf
You will need:
Canvas tote bags
Colorful Holiday Fabric
X-acto knife/Silhouette Cameo
piece of cardboard
DIY White Canvas tote bags from Oriental Trading Company.
They come in a pack of 12 for $20.99.
They sent them to me at no cost in exchange for this tutorial!
They are pretty good quality. They are a bit thin and the straps are very flimsy...
They would be great for a child's birthday party...simple tote bags for
school books...but they aren't super substantial.
So I decided to give them enough of a makeover to make them phenomenal!
If you haven't used freezer paper for crafts, it's amazing...check out this post.
It doesn't take much to iron freezer paper onto the bags.
Just make sure the edges are nice and secure.
This will prevent bleeding through the bag.
I did an ombre look with 2 shades of green paint.
I did about 6 inches on top to make a cuff around the top of the bag.
and sew a little line...so it's makes a triangle.
This will give the base of the bag a rectangle shape...not essential
but a great way to make the bag roomy.
colorful holiday material...and folds over to make a cuff.
These would be a fun way to gift things this holiday season!
Make them match the party theme...or have the kids decorate them as part of the fun!
