This project is SO simple. And you can change it to personalize your tote (or anything else) easily. This makes a perfect handmade gift. 

You can also use a die cutting machine to die cut any shapes you want to then adhere those onto the tote bag. The options are really endless!

I’m thinking of adhering a large ampersand or monogram to these bags and giving them as Teacher’s gifts at the end of the year. The kids can also help out a bit with the altering so that they can feel involved in the project too.
