Crafters young and old (or young at heart) will love adding a DIY touch to this Favorite Photo Decoupaged Tote Bag. Teen craft projects are a great excuse to introduce creativity and fun into an otherwise unexciting day. Pick a meaningful image and simply print it onto a piece or cardstock or fabric film. In only five simple steps you can add your image to a plain canvas tote bag. This is a great gift idea for a friend or parent.

I have ruined 4 bags trying this. I followed instructions, but ended up with big messes. Since you say apply to image that is the side I did. What happens to the cardstock? Mine just stayed there. Is it supposed to peel off? Tried that too, doesn't work. Further instructions would be nice. Everything I did was a disaster. Thank you. Janet Fenwick
