DIY: Tote Bag Decoupage


Alright! We have to be productive guys! Do what you like and make it happen!



Hahaha. Okay, now we are continuing to craft.

It’s been awhile since the end of last year I posted about how to make embroidered christmas necklace. Now we’re gonna talking about decoupage!

Recording to Wikipedia, Decoupage or Découpage is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf and other decorative elements. Commonly, an object like a small box or an item of furniture is covered by cutouts from magazines or from purpose-manufactured papers.

But we’ll try it something different here. We’ll gonna do it on a tote bag. Come!


Here is what you need guys. Pretty simple.

  • Tote bag
  • Pattern tissue
  • Scissors
  • Glue for fabric
  • Brush
  • Sponge
  • Water



Arrange some decorative looks from pattern tissue that you have. Then, cut it into the shape that you want.



Put some glue on the surface that you have planned to put the pieces of your tissues. Let it dry.

After dried, put your tissue on the glued surface. Take your sponge and make it a little bit wet at the tip of its (squeeze your sponge to get not to much water on the tip. Note: just a little bit of water). With your wet sponge, press your tissue softly. Let it dry.



After the surface is dried, let’s make it protected by gluing the tissued surface. Let it dry then gluing it again to varnish them.



And you’re done! Now you got the beautiful canvas tote bag for your daily activities! 😉


Hope this will be useful for you and see you in the next tutorial! Tchzüss!





Dry it using the light of the sun is much better than it dry by itself.
