Apply Fabric Paint

Slip a piece of cardboard or a few sheets of paper into your tote to create a hard surface to work on. Gently dap a small amount of fabric paint on the stencil area using a foam brush. Let dry.

Peel Freezer Paper

Peel back the freezer paper from the tote (image 1). Create a handle with ribbon and attach with hot glue. Fill the tote with Easter treats (image 2).
