INSIDE : Learn how to make an easy Handmade Triangle Tote bag using a stenciled sponge painting technique perfect for carrying all your special items around town.
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.
What supplies do I need to make a stenciled Triangle tote bag?
I cut up an old leftover styrofoam container into four or so triangles. I quickly hot glued the triangles together to create my triangle stamp.
Start at the top of your tote and begin stamping. I created a pattern so that all the points of the triangle would touch each other.
Be sure to gently tap your triangle stamp on a spare paper plate after applying the paint, so it’s not too heavy with paint.
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 to cover the bottom portion of the tote bag. It only took about 2 coats of paint for nice even coverage.
Here is my finished tote after the paint has dried. She’s all ready to be gifted!
