    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • scissors
    • Contac® paper
    • Sharpie® marker
    • X-Acto® knife
    • cosmetic sponge
    • small burlap tote
    • circular household object (bowl or dinner plate)



    Allow to dry between steps.

    1. Print off the monogram on a computer in your favorite font or draw by hand.
    2. Use scissors to cut out a piece of Contac® paper out that is bigger than your design.
    3. Use a marker to trace the pattern onto Contac® paper.
    4. Use an X-Acto® knife to cut out the design.
    5. Use household objects (like an old bowl or dinner plate) to make a circle and just dot with a marker to lightly outline. (You do not need to make heavy marks.)
    6. Use the 3/4” flat brush to paint the entire circle Carousel Pink. Rinse the brush; let tote dry completely.
    7. Position the letter stencil from step 4 onto the tote where you would like it, remove the backing paper, and firmly press down the Contac® paper.
    8. Dip a cosmetic sponge into Snow White. Dab off the excess paint before putting on bag. Use light coats to dab all over the letters.
