  1. Using Martha Stewart Crafts Stenciling Tape, mask off your desired painted area.
  2. Using a stencil brush, pounce Martha Stewart Crafts Paint in Granny Smith Satin all over bottom of your tote bag. When dry, repeat on the reverse side until completely covered.
  3. After your basecoat of paint is completely dry, using a decoupage brush take your Oilcloth decoupage and apply a layer of decoupage directly to your tote bag in the desired area while simultaneously applying a layer of decoupage to your fabric die-cut pieces.
  4. Wait 1-2 minutes and take your fabric die-cut pieces and place them on the tote to adhere.
  5. Wait 1-2 hours before applying another 2-3 layers of Oilcloth Decoupage over your fabric pieces to secure, making sure to wait 1-2 hours in between coats. Be sure to leave a minimum ¼ “halo around the edges of your pieces for maximum adhesion.
  6. For an oilcloth finish, apply another 1-2 layers of Oilcloth Decoupage over your entire project, waiting 1-2 hours between each coat. Tip: use a Martha Stewart Crafts Squeegee to apply for an extra smooth finish.
  7. When completely dry, use your Crafts knife to score and release your tape
