    Personal Travel Bag

    Make your own personal bag to show where you've traveled!
    • Moderate

    Supplies Needed


    1. Place an individual state puzzle piece or a stencil on a piece of felt. Trace around the shape with a pencil. Cut out the state shape.
    2. Cover the back of the state shape with glue. Use a paintbrush to spread the glue over the entire shape, coating the edges of the felt.
    3. Place the state shape on the canvas travel bag. Press out any wrinkles in the felt with your fingers. Let the glue dry completely.
    4. Accent your bag using Elmer's 3D Washable Pant Pens™. Let the paint dry completely.
    5. Each time you take a trip, add a new state to your travel bag!
