Everything you need to make your DIY Tote Bag is in this kit. The stencil is thick and durable, perfect for multiple uses. I love the Tulip Fabric Spray Paint, it’s really fun and easy to use and a heavy cotton canvas bag from Baggu! Plus a sponge pouncer, for extra painting posibilites.DIY Tote Bag Kit from Darby Smart Supplies

I put paper inside my tote bag, it wasn’t necessary, however it’s always better to be safe than sorry.DIY Tote Bag Kit from Darby Smart Stencil
I didn’t want to have extra paint around my stencil, so I put paper around the stencil and taped over my bag to keep it clean.DIY Tote Bag Kit from Darby Smart Paint Prep
You may need to hold your stencil down as you’re spraying your tote, this will keep the paint exactly where you want it.DIY Tote Bag Kit from Darby Smart Tulip Fabric Spray Paint

I was asked to do a straightforward creation with the only materials included. So I wanted to maintain the integrity of the stencil design and explore the possibilities of the spray paint by blending and layering the colors. But whos to say you cant add your own personal touch to it by say… adding studs? Or more paint? Cut up your stencil and move it around. Do I hear rhinestones? Anyone?

I was asked by i Love To Create to try out this fun DIY Tote Bag kit by Darby Smart. This kit uses the fabric spray paint from Tulip, which is really fun to use and creates a beautiful, strong color. (You can see another project I made using the Tulip Fabric Spray Paint here.)

While I know Im being paid to review this kit, I just want to say that I really do think its worth it. The quality of materials is very good and the design is really fun. It would also make a great gift!
