just remember, if something gets buggered up, smart people will think its supposed to be that way and stupid people won't know the difference.

If it turns out that there is a God, I don't think that he's evil. But the worst that you can say about him is that basically he's an underachiever.

i'm not going to be able to put up a tute w/ pics until i make another one, i didnt think to take pictures of the process.  but overall its pretty easy to do. i'll just describe what i did and next time i make one i'll do a nice tute.

you're gonna need:
-whatever colored duct tape you want(walmart is good for different colors, home depot is good for bulk for cheap- i get my black there)
-scisors
-old magazines
-ruler
-pen(pencil doesnt work too well on magazines/duct tape)

1) the piece that i always make first is the very front.  for the strips you can either fold the duct tape in half-which can be rather difficult- or you can put it on the ripped out page of a magazine and then cut out the strips, that way you can make them any size you want. then you just weave them together and duct tape the sides and the back to make them stay that way.
2)then i cover one side of some magazine pages with duct tape and cut them out into the shapes that i need for the main part of the purse (its just a box) so, two long skinny rectangles, two short skinny rectangles, and two big rectangles.
3)then i cover the other sides of the cut out shapes with magazine
4)then i put together the main part of the box. and attach the flap that hangs over
5)the last thing i put on is the strap, which i make in the same way that i made the strips of duct tape, except for i cover both sides w/ tape. the straps either need to be sewn on or really re-inforced w/ duct tape cuz they're always the first things to break
6)any pockets are made in the same fashion that the main part of the purse was made and then stuck to the inside of the purse w/ a piece of duct tape rolled so it works like double sided tape
hopefully that all made some sense

that is just how i do everything, there really are a lot of different ways you can do it, and variations you can use.  i'd just give the kids the basic materials and maybe show them an example you've made and let them go wild.  with some planning, you can pretty much make any design work.

basically you just put the ductape on the magazine and cut around, it just gives you a base to work w/ so u're not working with the sticky side of the duct tape which sticks to everything.

yea,  i always do, it makes it stronger and it looks better.  but, i always cut it out first because 1)its easier to cut and 2)you can draw all over w/ pen making marks and such and it doesnt matter cuz you're just gonna cover it with duct tape in the end.

sometimes i even do the purse w/ silver duct tape(cuz its cheapest) and then put the colored stuff over it.  that way it really doesnt matter what it looks like cuz you're just gonna cover it w/ the nice looking stuff later... although, if you make it too thick it tends to wrinkle or get bent easier.

experimentation is the best way to figure out what you like and whats easiest for you to do.
