I am a man. With alot of random crap I like to carry. I need a bag to carry it in. (NOT A PURSE!) So I buy swag bags. You know, the bags that tighten on top with a pull string that doubles as the straps? Well, i've learned that swag bag manufacterers have no idea what they are doing. So, i'm making my own. Problem was, I only had the materials I could buy in my home town gas station. But, I like to get creative. The duct tape Swag bag was born!

First and foremost, you cannot have a life if you are going to attempt this. Obviously you won't have a girlfreind, becasue your making arts and crafts on the internet. That screams sexy doesn't it? Second, you must have a lot of free time. School works nice.
The actual things you need are simple:

A crap- ton of duct tape
A sewing kit.
Very thin rope or cord.  

Step 2: First step

The first thing your gonna want to do is find out how big you want your swag bag to be. I made the base about 1 foot. 
Take a strip about 1 foot big,(doesn't have to be exact) Take another strip that is slightly longer and stick the sticky sides together. Stick the excess tape to the back of the strip.  Do this until you have about 10 strips. Then, tape them together using a longer strip, again taping the excess to the back. Once you have that done, Tape all edges. Place the new sticky tape on the edge and tape around to the other side. This will strengthen the material, and avoid fray. You can then continue tapping in this vertical direction, or leave it be. I tis up to you. Repeat this all again. So you end up with two identical pieces of material.
