How-To Steps:

  1. Log into Cricut Design Space and click on the logo above to take you right into this project.
  2. Personalize by making each layer a different color glitter iron-on.
  3. Use the “slice” technique I’m sharing below to remove the overlap area of the design because – you can’t iron glitter over glitter!
  4. Cut the design on a 12″ x 12″ cutting mat using the “glitter iron-on” setting.
  5. Weed (remove) any glitter iron-on that isn’t part of the design.
  6. Using a pressing cloth, iron your new design onto your tote bag.
  7. Store all your important wedding planning items in one place!

More Ways Than One

Making this tote bag is just ONE way you can use our super cute “totes engaged” design. You can cut it out of vinyl to put on your wedding planning notebook. You can cut it out of regular iron-on material and make it a shirt. Or even cut it out of paper to make a scrapbooking page of the day you got engaged!
