Growing up, I was always in charge of packing my dad’s lunch when my mom wasn’t available. They were both very hardworking people and often worked opposite shifts. Needless to say, I was up for the task. Following every lunch and workday, I’d ask my dad how his meal was to evaluate my performance. I know, so nerdy. He would let me know if the sandwich was too soggy, a bit dry or just right. Based on his feedback, I’d update my lunch making process in hopes that the next packed meal was perfectly scrumptious.
Today, I continue the tradition of packing lunches. People often say, “That’s cute.” whenever they find out I prepare my husband’s lunches most of the week. Honestly, I love doing it. I think everyone should have a delicious meal to eat, so they can be supercharged throughout the day.
To ensure we all have a wonderful meal, Brooke came up with this awesome Geometric Lunch Tote. It’s super simple and lovely and anyone would enjoy carrying their lunch in this bag. Happy crafting!
Geometric Lunch Tote
Canvas or hemp tote
Painters or artist tape
Bowls for paint
Scrap paper or cardboard
Decide on the design you want to create for your lunch tote. (I like to sketch ideas on paper first.)
Use your painters tape to layout the design on your bag.
Insert a scrap piece of paper or cardboard into your bag, so the paint doesn’t bleed while painting.
Pour your paint(s) into bowls, and apply it to your design. Use an up/down motion when painting for better coverage and to avoid bleeding under the tape.
Once your design is complete, remove the tape at a 45-degree angle.
Let it dry completely, and feel free to touch-up, if needed.
