Last year I redecorated my studio with an industrial chic teal and rust theme. Yet, I never really seem to finish--I am always refining the look and more importantly, improving my organization.
Sure that sounds good, but truth is, at least in my Paper Calliope studio, I'm a slob. I actually love when things are neat and organized, but despite my best intentions, the studio always ends up a mess. Considering that sometimes I have to tiptoe between piles of paper, ephemera, glitter bottles and heat guns, "mess" might be an understatement.
Tutorial--How to make an altered art supply tote
Step Two Trace the outside sections of the drink tote onto Teal Glitter Cardstock and cut out.
Step Three Adhere the glitter cardstock to the drink tote using Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue.
Step Four Adhere a patterened brown fabric tape to tote corners.
Step Five Distress edges of tote with dark brown ink.
Step Six Adhere rusty metal hardware to sides of tote with a strong adhesive.
Step Seven Adhere blue metallic dew drops to sides of tote.
Step Eight Tie short pieces of assorted ribbons to tote handle.
That's it! All you have to do now is add your favorite supplies and enjoy
