So I finally tried my hand at making a duct tape purse.  I used cherry red and turquoise duct tape.  It took a lot longer to make than I anticipated; about 3 hours.  The purse measurements are 9 inches length by 6 1/2 inches tall by 4 inches width.  I will make a larger purse next time.  This one is a bit on the small side for me.

I made a 40 inch long strap and an interior cell phone pocket and a strap to attach keys.  I used a magnetic snap for the closure and glued a plastic star button on the front of the snap for decoration.

I really like how it turned out.  I must say I am hooked.  I want to make more duct tape accessories.

Although the picture is a bit small to see, it looks very colourful and cheery.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Very cute purse!  I love the colors!  (And if you want to put in bigger pics and don't know how, I'm happy to help!)

Thank you Antidigger and kaz.  I don't know why those two pictures are so small.  They are ones I copied and pasted from my photo gallery here.
Ah, I figured out what I did wrong.  I copied the link to add a small thumbnail image.  I corrected it.  Now the photos are easier to see.
