This was made from neon green and black duct tape; the texture is really odd, but cool. I finished it in an hour, triumphant with a scissors battle scar on my finger.

It didn't take long at all; probably about an hour. Duct tape is always fun because even if something looks complex, it's easy as hell. This one is just strips of spikes going up the purse.

That's impressive that it only took in hour.   It really looks like it at least took a few days or something.  I absolutely love how the spikes look.

       I'll try to explain how to do it, but tell me if I make it too confusing: first, make the base of the purse (I did the whole base with green tape). If you don't know how to make sheets of duct tape, go to http://www.3m.com/intl/CA/english/centres/home_leisure/duct_tape/dt_wallet.html and read the first 3 steps. When you're done, the purse should be the shape you want, just without spikes. To put the spikes on, make a sheet of duct tape that is only one strip long and cut spikes from it. Make a lot of spikes from each of your colors. Then, rip a strip of tape that is as long as your purse is wide. Arrange your spikes on the strip like this:

Keep making these strips and add them to the purse going from the bottom up. This is REALLY important. If one spot looks too black or too green, don't be afraid to yank some spikes out and replace with the other color. I hope that helps! Just tell me if you need something clarified.
