DIY White Canvas Tote Bag Kit
I was surprised when they came because I (for some reason) was expecting bigger bags. I obviously never looked at the measurements. But there was still a table full of happy little girls decorating their bags at our birthday party! The glue is hard to manage and messy. But it was for a 7 year old party, and they did pretty good with it. My three year old made a big mess :) I recommend having wet wipes handy!
And the sticky letters stayed on better than I thought they would, but my daughter is careful and takes care of things.
I was very happy with this purchase! And there was plenty of paint and letters left over for other projects!

I purchased them to replace gift bags for Christmas. They inspired my mother (children's great grand mother) to start decorating right away.
My idea is to give the gift this year in the canvas bag, then if it is returned to me, I'll re-use them for next year's gifts.

Great product for 3rd grade class to make their own trick or treat bags. Had a blast decorating them!

I bought these for gift bags for my bridemaids. I had there picture done in charactatures. Came out really cute but used permanent markers instead. didn't want to take a chance. The totes were really thin and not well made but it did its job perfect so can't complain too much.

good but not great...
I had older daycare children decorate these to hold their valentines. Totes are size as stated, decent quality. Markers are very good. Paint? VERY smelly, tends to come out too quickly and often in gobs. Did work to use tube tip to spread the paint. I inserted a paper grocery bag to prevent seepage. Fit perfectly. Be sure to let dry overnight. I did not use the stickers, saved them for another project. I would still order this to use again, however, I would like to see the package come with more (or better) paint tubes and eliminate the stickers. Overall, kids (and parents) loved the project! And I felt it was worth the price.

I purchased this items for two Girl Scout Troops. The bags are not that great of quality and the pens are extremely messy and take forever to dry. I thought when they said that they were fabric pens, that they would be pens and not paint. It would be easier to go to a craft store and purchase the bags with fabric pens!

Don't need pens or baubles
I purchased these for my preschool classroom end of year project. We managed to fit 15 handprints on each bag if we overlapped them. I would have preferred a bag that was a little larger without the decoration materials. We didn't even attempt to use them with our little ones. I would buy them again; if fact, I may make this a yearly tradition. However, now I have to find a way to use all the pens and doo-dads.

Great Scout project
I purchased this product for my daughters' Daisy Scout troop. The girls are 5-6 years old. They loved it, and found it easy to do with minimal assistance. A few of the paint pens had clogged tips (which I could clear with a toothpick), and one was dried out, or else I would have given this craft a 5.

Good package, just don't use with little ones!
Everything came as stated. Planning problem on my end - not a project for fathers and kids under 5 to be left alone with...the kids had a blast making them though! They loved the colors and being able to personalize the bags. For the age group (mostly 2-5), I should have just gotten the fabric markers and forgotted about the paint pens. The kids really gooped the paint on thick, so nothing was dry by the end of the party.

I liked what I got - Only thing I'm not sure on is the sticky letters - I have chosen not to use these on my project - afraid they will not hold up to normal wear of a 7-8 year old. Other wise I though this was a excellent Kit for my Scouts
