How to Make a Duct Tape Purse and Flower

One of the more popular posts on my blog has been duct tape purses.  Many of you have contacted me asking for directions, especially for the flower.  I'm happy to announce that I have completed two videos that take you step-by-step through the process.  I hope you enjoy them!

This purse is made from denim blue and white duct tape with a yellow gingham fabric lining.  


It features a bright, bold yellow flower! 

The corners are boxed. 

The handles are secured with silver brads.

To view the video tutorials, just click on the photos below, or the links, where you will be redirected to my youtube channel.  If you like the videos, please like, share, or subscribe to my channel so you can be informed when new videos are available.  Thanks!!

 I like to link to these great parties!

  10. Agreed with every comment above..!!

    The duct tape purse is totally cute and adorable.

    The flower adds more beauty to the purse and I will also like to say that color of the purse is also a great choice.

    However, with intent to learn more about duct tape purses I surfed the web and found edgywallets.com which helped me a lot learn the process of how to make duct tape purse & wallet.

  11. This is so cute! Where do you find such cute buttons?

    1. Hi Stacy! Thank you! The center of the flower is actually an earring with the back removed. I just glued it in place using E6000. Good luck!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I appreciate the feedback and always look forward to reading what you have to say! Susan
