An easy duct tape project that can be done in an evening. Last minute gift for your girlfriend perhaps?
Step 1: You will need: duct tape (either the standard grey, or any color is ok, scissors, ruler, cardboard and...time. Don't rush it, DT sticks very well to itself!!
Step 2: First, you'll have to make DT sheets by overlapping them like so.
Step 3: Cut the sheets to size, in this case, 9"x7"x7". You'll need to make another one...
Step 4: Now, get that scrap cardboard and cut it 3"x 9", and wrap it in DT. This is the bottom.
Step 5: Once you have all the pieces, tape'em together!
Step 6: For the carrying strap, I just used two pieces of blue DT with a 1/2" yellow DT for the strip. I made the strap about 20". Tape it on, and your girlfriend's new handbag is done!!
