Looking for a last minute Valentine’s Day gift for a friend or tween? This DIY Tote Bag is perfect!

The best part?!

The tote bag is from the Target Dollar Spot!! It came with the gold heart on it so all you have to do is add the “XOXO” using heat transfer vinyl.

Materials needed:

-Tote Bag (If you can’t find one with a heart already on it, a heart is super easy to add, you just need another color of Heat Transfer Vinyl)

-Black Heat Transfer Vinyl (Cricut or Expressions Vinyl)

-Cricut Machine

-Iron/Ironing Board

-Parchment Paper


Using your Cricut or other cutting machine, select a font and type in the desired text. Size to fit your tote bag. Make sure you reverse the design! Cut according to heat-transfer vinyl settings on your machine. Peel off the excess vinyl, then iron on to the bag, pressing firmly, and using the parchment paper to separate the vinyl from the iron.

SO easy, and adorable! Our 10-year-old model loved it and took it to dance class right away!

Be creative! You could use “Be Mine”, or different fonts (there are so many awesome, FREE fonts out there). Either way, in about 10 minutes you could have an easy gift for someone you love this Valentine’s Day!
