Easy Handmade Triangle Tote

Hello friends.  Today I am sharing an Easy Handmade Triangle Tote.  I’m not sure about you, but I don’t think I will ever have enough bags, purses and totes!  I love grabbing one when on the go and it’s great to have a few for different occasions.  You can see I am a tote lover, as I’ve made a West Elm knockoff and a Burberry inspired canvas tote bag. This triangle tote is a quick update to a fairly plain bag and is a perfect gift idea.

I cut up an old leftover styrofoam container into four or so triangles.  I gave them a quick hot glue together to create my triangle stamp.  I then filled a plate with white paint and started stamping.

After I had stamped about 2/3 of the way down the tote, I let the paint dry.  Once dry, I used painters tape to keep a nice crisp line and then covered the upper portion of the tote with a plastic bag.  I used my favorite gold spray paint and it only took about 2 coats of paint for even coverage.

Here is my finished tote after the paint has dried.  She’s all ready to be gifted!
