This week I've been having a lot of fun with masking tape and making fun patterns. This one came to me as I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep, but instead thinking of fun things to make. I have another idea rattling around in my brain for a tote bag DIY, so that might be appearing soon too!
What you'll need:
Foam pouncer (I use these)
With your scissors, cut out little triangles from the tape and place them on the tote as you go. The triangles don't need to be the same size or shape, I think it looks cooler to have varying sizes of triangles. Cover the whole side of the tote with triangles.
Then, start painting around the triangles. I used the pouncer primarily, but then to get clean edges around the tote, and to touch up some areas, I used a paintbrush. Wait until the paint is dry and then you can start peeling the triangles off. And you're done! If you want it to be washable, make sure to follow the instructions on the paint bottle for how to set the paint.
