2. With a
ruler, arrange the pattern in a straight line at the top of your bag, and
lightly trace the outline in pencil.
the pattern 1 ½ inches below the first line and trace another, repeating
‘til you reach the bottom.
off the outlines neatly to leave white space in between each one. Press
down firmly on the tape so no paint can seep underneath.
the cardboard cereal box and place it inside your tote so that no paint
can transfer to the other side.

even, light coats.
