Step 1: Things You'll Need

1) Plastic storage tote

2) Stove burner decals

3) Toy cookware and plastic food

Step 2: Cutting Burner Decals

Click on image above and hit 'print scrn' on your keyboard then copy and paste it into Photoshop (or other photo editors). Resize the image to the size burners you want. I used 6X6 inches for my burners

Cutting burner decals:

1) Die cutter (preferred method)

I used my Black Cat Die Cutter but you can use any die cutter, i.e. Cricut Cutter


You can take the image file to your local Decals, Sticker, Labels company and have them make the vinyl decals for you (we have several near our home)

2)Print image it on sticker paper and cut out (time consuming and not very durable)

Step 3: Place Burners on Tote Lid

Step 4: Then Let You Children's Imagination Run Wild . . . . .
