DIY Screen Printed Good Witch Tote Bag

 Are you a good witch or a bad witch? You'll definitely be a Chic Witch when you screen print and embellish your own faBOOlous DIY Good Witch Tote Bag!  The Tulip Screen-It Machine makes it super easy to custom create and burn your own screens that you can use to print on all sorts of surfaces.  Add a little Tulip Beads in a Bottle glitter accent, some seasonally apropos decorative trims and you'll be absolutely enchanting.

You will need:
Black Canvas Mini-Tote Bag
Halloween Themed Printed Canvas Ribbon (Michaels Recollections)
Sparkling Faceted Plastic Trim
Vintage Witch Graphic (found below!)
Printed Image in Black
Tulip Soft Fabric Paint in Matte Mandarin Orange
Painter's Tape

 Step One: Print image sized to fit your tote.  Step Two: Use the Tulip Screen-It Machine to create your screen, following THESE INSTRUCTIONS.  Step Three: Soak screen in cool water.  Step Four: Gently remove emulsion from burned areas with a soft sponge and fingertips.  Dry on a soft, clean towel.  Step Five: Cut off excess screen around image, leaving about a 2" border.  Step Six: Tape the screen to the center of your purse using painter's tape.
Step Seven: Add a bead of paint across top of screen.  Step Eight: Use squeegee provided with Screen-it Machine to scrape paint across screen.  Allow to dry.  Step Nine: Use a paintbrush to add a thin layer of glitter to dress, cape, hat and shoes.  Allow to dry.  Step Ten: Glue trim across top of bag using a thin layer of Fabric Fusion or Fabric Fusion Tape.
 Voila, instant faBOOlous! How charming are you?
