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!!

You vould probably use the bottom of a kleenex box for this

you could just take a paper bag and cover it with DT and make the handel.

I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out how to make a Planner out of Duct tape? Also- How do you reinforce your bags?

itll work for a rock pouch for ammo too
Make sure to reinforce the shoulder straps, for they come loose often if you use it and have heavy things in there.

Nope, Duct tape = all powerful. xD

People have claimed that they've used their duct tape wallets for 10 years and nothing's really happened to them.

I wouldn't know. I lost my wallet a few weeks ago. D:

I made one of these, everyone at school loved it
I did this about 2 years ago and my sister loved it. Try putting a front pocket on it. I also got some clear and purple duct tape cut a strip of it and weaved them to make a cherboard effect.
