ok I know its taken me FOREVER to post this and I'm sorry for taking SOOO long but like most people ive had things to do so I got of track but anyways here are the instructions and photos on how to make a duct tape purse.

Duct tape of which ever colors you want I used a tan color and a chrome to make this purse.
a ruler
and a book that the duct tape can stick to but wont rip up the cover.

the first thing I do when I make my purses are make the strips for the checkered pattern, I do this by cutting a strip of tape thats about 12 inches long which is about the size of the book I used but I don't really take measurements I just eye ball it. I make about 12 strips of each color so you get 24 total, the way I make strips is by folding the tape in half hotdog style. Then I take 12 of the same color tape and tape it on ONE end.

once ive done that I start to weave the opposite color like so

Once ive done that I tape up the remaining three sides.

Then I make the back by making sheets of duct tape the same size as the front and I make sheets for the sides and bottom I make them as wide as I want my purse to be but it has to be about 12 inches tall like the front and back.

 Then I make straps by making them the same way I made the strips for the checkered pattern I make them as long as I want I make them the same color as the one weaved into the front in this case being the chrome and tape them to the inside of the purse. And thats it Cheesy. If you have any questions on anything tell me because it is quite confusing when its written out  Tongue.

The checkered took forever!!

Wow!  You did a really nice job.  I like the combination of colors.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.

How do you do the checker print?  I have been making duct tape stuff for a long time, but I've never been able to master the checkerboard.  It looks really great, btw.

I love this!  I don't think I have the patience for checkerboard (but I am a Duct Tape fiend).  Love your choice of colors. You did a fabulous job!
