DIY Crafter's Ink Wood Beverage Tote for Dad by Dana Tatar

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing how I added a cool pattern using ColorBox® Crafter’s Ink to a Walnut Hollow Rustic Tote to create a fun Diamond Stripe Wood Bottle Tote for my husband. My husband spends most of his time during grocery store trips in the beverage isle. I know when I bring him along on a shopping trip the grocery bill will be a lot higher, but no one will leave the store thirsty. With Father’s Day fast approaching, I thought a personal beverage carrier would make a great gift and will be something he can use all year long.

How to use Masking Tape as a Stencil by Dana Tatar

To create an eye-catching diamond design on the wood tote, use a pencil and a ruler to draw a diamond pattern onto the tote. To prepare the tote for ink application, use masking tape to section off areas for color.

Ann Butler Crafter's Ink Application on Wood by Dana Tatar

Use an Art Dauber to apply ColorBox® Crafter’s Ink onto the wood tote. Dry the ink with a heat gun to permanently set the colored areas.

Add a diamond stripe in a contrasting color for added interest. Continue masking the tote and applying color until the design covers all sides of the tote. Note: I love the look of natural wood, so I didn’t completely cover this tote with ink.

There are over 2 dozen colors of ColorBox® Crafter’s Ink available, so mix and match the colors to create a design palette that works for you!
