Have you ever wanted to turn a plain tote bag from boring to cute as a button? Look no further! We've created an adorable step-by-step guide to help you do just that!

Tote bag
Buttons (variety of colors)
Thread (green)
Glue gun

1. Arrange the buttons into flower shapes by using a large button as the center and smaller buttons as the petals. Attach all of the buttons onto the tote bag with a glue gun.

2. Once you've finished gluing down all of the buttons, use a needle and thread to create stems. Start at the base of each flower and stitch the thread all the way down to the bottom of the bag. Note: If you want to keep your lines straight, trace the stem design with a pencil before you begin stitching.

3. Continue stitching until you've added stems to every flower and then you're done! Feel free to use the thread to add even more details to your flowers (such as leaves, grass, etc.).
