Stencil Revolution Tropical Tote Bags Summer Camp Craft
Need a quick craft for Summer camp or just a fun activity?  Stenciling is the solution!  It's easy and great for a wide range of ages and skill levels.

These stencils are from Stencil Revolution.
I used the 8.5x11 size in the flamingo, pineapple, and peacock.
You will also need:
Paint (Apple Barrel from Plaid Crafts)
Tote bags (Organic Cotton from Totebag Factory)
Cardboard to fit inside the tote bag
Stenciling Brush or Sponge Brush
Slip the cardboard inside the layers of the tote bag to prevent the paint from seeping to the backside.  No adhesive needed...just place the stencil on the tote and hold firmly.  Or secure it in place with a little painters tape on the top and bottom edge.
Open the paint and hold stencil steady while you dab the stencil brush straight up and down.
I used 2 different shades of yellow to give it some depth, but it's not necessary.
Same process for the green crown leaves.
Remove the stencil and wash with warm soapy water.  Let the bag dry and remove the cardboard.
Perfection!  Ready to fill with books, groceries and more!
The process for the Flamingo is identical, using 3 shades of pinks to add some variety.
Remove the stencil and wash while the paint is still wet.  Wash the brush and let the image dry.
Looks fabulous!  I love the tropical flamingo vibe!
And finally the peacock--all those teals and aquas!
Repeat the same steps as above and then let the peacock dry.
Stunning and proud, this peacock tote is ready to fill with fun!
Great for summer beach bags, pool bags or summer time library trips!  Fun craft for youth groups and summer camps.  Which one is your favorite?  I love all three together!
