A TOTES-Creative Dreamweaver Thursday with Canvas Corp

If you’ve been following us this week (and you SHOULD be!), then you know that we’ve been providing oodles of ideas for decorating Canvas Corp® canvas products…specifically these cute little totes…

Yes, these are perfect for stamping on with all of the great Stampendous images, for any occasion, and easy to accessorize with our Essentials like glitter and Color Fragments, etc….but…these are AWESOME for use with our Dreamweaver Stencils! They are flat, the perfect size for even our large background designs, and the canvas takes paints, dyes, inks, and PASTES wonderfully. Yes, I did say pastes. The canvas provides perfect “tooth” for our Dreamweaver embossing paste to grab on to as another great way to add texture and dimension to your projects. What can you use them for? How about for phones; a quick grab with money, keys, etc. for errands; gift and treat bags; decór; favors at a wedding; little gifts for hostesses and/or guests during the holidays? We’d love to hear what YOU would use them for!
