Introduction: Duct Tape Handbag

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

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

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: Strap

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!!

    I made one but changed the design to be rounded instead of squared. It was a pain, but it turned out awesome! I now see many duck tape projects in my future.
