Skill Level: 


Approximate Crafting Time: 


Supplies and Tools:

  • Color or printed Duck Tape®
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Craft board


  • Step 1

    Make 2 pieces of Duck Tape® fabric that are 16 in. long and 12 in. wide. These will be the front and back of your purse. Set these aside.

  • Step 2

    For your side pieces, make 2 more pieces of Duck Tape® fabric that are 12 in. long and 5 in. wide. Set these aside. 

  • Step 3

    Make a final piece of Duck Tape® fabric that is 16 in. long and 5 in. wide. This will be the bottom of the purse. Set this aside.

  • Step 4

    Lay out the 2 side pieces from step 2 with one of the pieces from step 1. Use 12 in. strips of Duck Tape® to attach them together on both sides. This will be the front and sides of your bag. Set this aside. 

  • Step 5

    Lay out the second piece from step 1 and the piece from step 3. Use a 16 in. strip of Duck Tape® to attach them together on both sides. This will be the back and bottom of your bag. 

  • Step 6

    Lay out the bottom piece from step 5 in between the front and back piece. Use a 16 in. strip of Duck Tape® to attach them on both sides.

  • Step 7

    Fold all the sides up to create your bag and tape all the remaining seams inside and out.

  • Step 8

    For your straps, make two double sided strips of Duck Tape® that are 24 in. long. Round off the edges if desired. 

  • Step 9

    Connect the straps to the front and back of your bag with strips of Duck Tape®. Add other accessories or material to decorate if desired.

    Add your own design and personal style to the outside of your bag!

    I really enjoyed making this bag but I wish it said how much DT it would take to do. I used about 2 2/3 rolls... some very expensive. I also wish they would show how to attach the handles. Over all, I really enjoyed doing this project but next time allow for more tape usage.

  • triciaj79 about 4 months ago
    This bag turns out super cute! It takes quite a lot longer than what they say, time wise, to complete the project. I used almost two whole rolls of the designer tapes and a little over half of two rolls of solid color tapes. These amounts also account for a couple errors and for some additional decorative pieces and fun things. Be very patient with yourself and the tape when you get to the assembly part, it is extremely tedious. Have fun!

    The duct tape adhesive would definitely melt on a hot day at the beach. Doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

  • CraftyGal about 16 months ago
    I love duck tape bags, they are so easy and fun to make. However, step 9 confuses me. It says to attach the straps with a strip of duck tape, but in the picture it looks like they are attached with a button or brad. It would be better if the pictures were a true representation of the directions so we are not left wondering why it doesn't look the same.
