Halloween is right around the corner. Make this cute tote for trick or treating or use as a gift bag. Either way, it will be appreciated by the one you make it for. Use glow in the dark paint makes this tote extra special.
- Die-cutting machine (Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2)
- Cricut cut file (Trick Or Treat #M46CEA)
- Vinyl (Styletech)
- glow in the dark paint
- cosmetic sponge
- Halloween themed fabric
- sewing machine (Brother)
- tote bag
Using the Cricut file, cut your desired size out of vinyl (or parchment paper)
Weed out the text
Place the cardstock inside the tote
tip: fold the bag with the cardstock in half, for the cut vinyl in half, line up the seams
place the vinyl on the tote
Using the paint and a cosmetic sponge, paint the text area of the vinyl
dab the paint onto the tote.
Remove the vinyl before the paint dries
Allow the paint to fully dry before flipping to the other side
Repeat the painting process on the other side
Cut a strip of fabric long enough to wrap around the tote.
Finger fold the raw edges under
Pin the fabric into place
Sew the fabric into place with coordinating fabric
(if you don’t want to sew, you can use hot glue instead)
I sewed the fabric around the top and bottom edge
one zigzag stitch would work as well
I’d like to thank Cricut for providing the Maker used in this post.
