Hi guys! So, now that I have discovered the beauty of duct tape purses, I CANNOT stop making them. Here's my newest. Keep in mind I'm still a rookie though, so it's not totally ductabulous, but any critiques or comments are GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

Here's the front


And the purse on an angle


And lastly, the back with a cutie little star  Tongue



Again, thanks!

It was actually reallly reallly realllllly amazingly simple. I could go into detail with a tutorial, but I'll just explian here. You can go to my other duct tape purse tutorial here ->http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=30693.0 if you need a basic guideline.

 I cut out cardboard for the bases of it, covered them with duct tape (I used white) and then taped them together. I had 5 basic pieces, two faces, two sides and a bottom. Then I used colored duct tape (pink) to accent, and as a handle. For my handle, I took two long pieces of duct tape and folded each one over onto itself. Then I taped the two folded ones together. Then, I attached it onto the sides of the purse with the white tape. TA DAA!! You have a duct tape purse! For my next, I'm going to try to make it more flexible- the cardboard makes it durable but VERY rigid. Hope this helps and thanks for the compliment!
