How to Make

  1. Put some white paint into a paint tray, then push a sponge brush into the paint.
  2. Gently push the edge of the sponge brush onto a red bag and remove it to create a white rectangle shape. Repeat this across the bag to create a line of dashes.
  3. Push a sponge circle dabber into some black paint, then print it onto the bag underneath the white dashes. Continue this across the bag to create a line of black circles.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 using different sponge brushes and dabbers to create a fun pattern across the whole of your bag. Then leave to dry.

Top Tip

To prevent paint seeping through to the other side of the bag, place a piece of cardboard inside the bag before painting. Gently twist the sponge dabbers when printing to create a neat and even circle.
