Inspire Canvas Zipper Tote

Inspire Canvas Zipper Tote with Architextures rub-ons

Isn’t sewing on your list of skills? Then why not visit the CCB shop and choose one of the wide range of bags and totes available from Canvas Corp.  Canvas, demin and burlap bags and totes in different sizes and shapes are waiting your creativity. Paint, decorate, glue on them or whatever the moment inspires you to show your talent.

Our Crew member, Amber Rasmussen chooses a canvas zipper tote and beautifully decorates it with Tattered Angels mists and the Inspire rub-on from the new designs of 7gypsies Architextures™ collection.

Inspire Canvas Zipper Tote“Hello CCB fans! It’s Amber here, today I have a fun & simple colorful canvas zipper tote to share. I used one of Canvas Corps 5.5″ x 7.5″ canvas zipper totes, a bunch of Tattered Angels mists, and some fun new Parchment Rub-Ons from 7Gypsies called Inspire.

These new 7gypsies Architextures Parchment Rub-Ons are wonderful, there are four different sets to choose from. Unlike other rub-ons on the market these are quite unique in that a single sheet of parchment has over 150 designs in many different sizes and shapes.I had so much fun creating this project today, its super easy to recreate. Check out my step by step photos and instructions below.

Canvas Corp has lots of different sized bags, totes, and canvas accessories available in the shop that can be altered the same way I altered my canvas zipper tote. I thought the 5.5″ x 7.5″ zipper tote would be the perfect size for my project today. It could be used to store makeup, craft supplies, etc. It would also make a fabulous gift for a friend or fellow crafter. Thanks for visiting!” – says Amber Rasmussen.

Step 2

Once your canvas zipper tote is dry you can start adding your rub-ons. I used 7Gypsies Architextures Inspire Parchment Rub-Ons and rubbed them directly onto my canvas zipper tote with a popsicle stick.
