Purse Main Shot

Duck Tape Purses are a great way to keep your notes in good order.  They are also quite fashionable.  They involve making a Duck Tape Fabric Sheet, which can be completed in as little as five minutes.  Duck Tape Purses are an intermediate level craft.  They can be completed in approximately twenty minutes using eight simple steps.

Choose the style, design, colour and patterned Duck Tape of your choice to make your Duck Tape Purse.  Some crafters have even used glow in the dark Duck Tape so that they could find their wallets easily!  Others mixed patterns or colours of tape for a more dramatic effect.  These purses are functional as well as fun.  They are a great evening or weekend project, and they’re even waterproof!  Try creating a Duck Tape Purse today, and find out how useful and eye-catching they can be.
