Instructions

  1. Begin by creating a 12"x10" Fabric Sheet out of patterned duct tape. (click here to see Fabric Tape Instructions). Use one color of patterned duct tape for the inside of the purse and one color for the exterior of  the purse.
  2. Once you've created your duct tape fabric sheet, take the interior side of the fabric and face it up so that it sits 10" wide and 12" tall. Measuring from the bottom of the purse, make a crease at 4 1/2". Measure an additional crease at 4 1/2" from the first crease. A 3" section of material should remain. The two 4 1/2" folds will create the body of your clutch and the 3" will create the flap closure.
  3. Fold up the bottom section of the fabric so the two 4 1/2" pieces join together. 
  4. Cut two 4 1/2" strips of patterned duct tape to close the purse sides. (one on each side)
  5. Fold the remaining 3" flap down and adhere to purse using the 2 hook & loop fasteners.
  6. Cut a 7 1/2" strip of holographic duct tape and place it horizontally along the outside flap for extra decoration. 
  7. Cut a 7 1/2" strip of glitter duct tape and place it around the holographic strip to add more dimensions to your purse.
  8. To create the decorative flower (See Below for Diagram), cut a strip of your choice of duct tape that's at least 10 inches long. Leave a 1/4" of the adhesive exposed, fold the strip over lengthwise on its adhesive side.
  9. Crease the strip in a circular pattern, rotating around the sticky end of the strip. Continue creasing until you form a flower shape with a sticky center.
  10. You will end up with a circular flower with a sticky center. You can add as many layers of the same folded flower as you'd like.
  11. Once you have your desired flower design, cut a circular piece of tape and attach to the center of the flower. Finish by adding a gem to the center of the circle. Attach the flower to the purse with glue/tape and wear!
