Embellished Supply Tote

By: Tiffany Windsor

Get organized for the upcoming school year and create an Embellished Supply Tote from Tiffany Windsor. Use glitter and other sparkly embellishments to help your carrier stand out. Add personal messages, phrases  or names to make the project even more special.

Embellished Supply Tote


  • Plastic totes
  • Aleene’s Tacky Double Stick Sheets
  • Scissors or die cut lettering
  • Glitter – 3 colors for ombre effect
  • Straight pin (to help remove paper backing)
  • Paper plate (or wax paper to catch excess glitter)
  • Soft large paint brush


  1. Cut lettering from Aleene’s Tacky Double Stick Sheets. If using die cuts, place the Sheets shiny side down onto die. Place on tote to determine spacing and placement. Remove paper backing and press in place on tote.
