Ways To Customize A Canvas Tote

A great way to add some swag to your bag is with embellishments. Our tote comes with simple outlined illustrations that make it easy to let your personality shine. Here are a few crafty ways we customize our tote bag.

  • Pencils, Pens, & Markers | Simply insert a scrap piece of cardstock or cardboard inside your tote and use your pencil, pen, or marker to add color to the surface. Feel free to use the illustrations on our tote design as a base for your own unique customizations!
  • Glitter Glue & Shakers | A great way to elevate a plain tote is to add a little sparkle to the surface. If you’re working with glitter glue, simply point the tip to where you want the glitter grains to be dispensed and squeeze! If you’re working with a glitter shaker, remember to shake your glitter grains onto wet glue or clear adhesive. 

FYI: For a wide variety of colorful glitter glues, glitter shakers, and more, check out our collection at

  • Embroidery, Embellishments, & Stamps | If you’re a more advanced crafter, don’t hesitate to thread a needle with your favorite embroidery floss, raffia ribbon, or utilize a stamp to embellish your tote. When it comes to customizations, the possibilities are endless.
