DIY Stenciled Bag

Need an easy Valentine craft? Stenciled goodie bags are just the right combination of handmade and quick!


Materials:
Tumble Dye, Glue Dots, Acetate sheet, heart punch, chip board, and muslin bag

First, make your stencil! All you need to do is punch a heart out of the acetate.
Keep the heart that was punched out to use later.

Be sure to put a piece of chipboard in the bag before you spray. If you skip this step, the dye will bleed through the bag. Affix the stencil to the bag using glue dots. We used five around the heart. You can stamp at least ten bags with the same glue dots!

One your stencil is secure, spray the dye!


Wait thirty seconds and remove the stencil. Admire your work!

You can use the heart you punched out of the acetate as a resist. Affix it to the bag with glue dots.

Spray!

Wait thirty seconds and peel off the heart. 

Tumble Dye comes in tons of colors (we used hot pink). You can buy individual colors or sets.

Product Haul

Here's a look at some of the new products* that came in this week! 

New catch-all plates, gift bags and garland! With floral accents and bright colors, this smattering of product has us dreaming of spring.



We are so smitten with these bell charms! They are about 3/4 of an inch across and can be used as zipper pulls, key chains, and cat collar accessories,

Who doesn't need a cat or dog clothes pin? They also have a magnet on the back so you can post notes on the fridge or keep your chip bag closed with these cuties.

Need to show your love for saber tooth tigers or bat girl? We can assist with that. These iron-on, embroidered patches are the perfect addition to any jean jacket or back pack. Did you know we also carry blank canvas backpacks to decorate? Because we do. 

These zip pouches are made of 80% plastic bottles. The littlest ones are great for holding gift cards and the larger bags can hold all sorts of pens and pencils. 

We'll see you soon!
