Let’s start with the trick or treat Halloween tote. Here are the super easy instructions
1. Measure – determine how big your tote is so you can size your design.

2. Cut & Weed – open my Design Space project and size it to your tote. Make sure you “select all.” Send each layer to your mat and weed each piece of the design.

3. Apply iron-on – lay the iron on in place and measure to make sure you’re centered, and iron. (Tip: Make sure that you turn the “steam” feature off or it could bubble your design.)

4. Apply trim – using extreme glue (dries clear) add trim to the top edge of your bag.

Don’t you love how that glitter… well… glitters! I could use iron on glitter all the time. It never falls away and after wash, it still shines!
