If you missed last week’s Friday’s Finds post, then you also missed this amazing DIY canvas doily tote! I love it so much that I had to dedicate a post exclusively to this great project! It’s perfect for a holiday gift or bridesmaid gifts, and I think it’s absolutely beautiful!

My immediate vision was to put this design on a gift bag for Christmas gifts. I went to the store, bought doilies and kraft paper gift bags, and rushed home to give it a try. The first trial was a failed attempt because I didn’t have the spray adhesive. The second attempt was another fail due to the adhesive being too strong and pulling the paper off of the bag, destroying all stenciling. It was then that I came to the realization that the project was originally done on a canvas bag (DUH)! So, I ended up putting some pretty stamp patterns on the paper gift bags, but I will most definitely be trying this again on a canvas bag…or two or three! I’m so in love with it… it just HAS to work!
Does anyone have any other suggestions for how to use this doily design? I’m obsessed!
