I was at a store last weekend and came across the coolest tote that had the state of California and a heart pin where someone could move it to to place on their location… or just wherever they want in general.
I wasn’t sure how often I’d use this bag, so I opted to create my own version at a much cheaper price and loved the end result.
You will need:
1 canvas tote bag
1 bottle of acrylic paint (color of your choice)
1 paint brush
1 wooden heart (you can also paint to the color of your choice)
1 button back
State stencil (of your choice)
SO. I realized that state stencils on Amazon (or anywhere really) were pretty costly, so I made my own by printing out the state of CA, cutting it and tracing it onto the canvas:
Paint in the state:
Fasten the wooden heart to a back:
Pin the heart and viola!
