Library Canvas Bags

This summer we have been going to the library a lot, the kids are loving it! :)  They check out loads of books and 1 movie each every week or two.  I decided we needed library bags to keep track of our stuff, so I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up a pack of 3 canvas bags for $3 ish..they were regularly around $6 and were 50% off!

They looked like this before:
 Then after some house paint we made them into these:
