Divine Duct Tape in Haute Handbags!

I'm excited to announce that my first magazine article hits the stands on April 1st!  My duct tape purses were chosen to be featured in the Spring edition of Haute Handbags by Stampington.  Three of my designs are pictured in the magazine, along with step-by-step instructions on basic handbag construction.  

Stars and Stripes

This patriotic handbag features a shoulder strap, front flap, and red, white, and blue plaid lining.

The Sunflower

This tote has black and white striped lining and a shoulder strap that features eyelets and a buckle. The bright yellow sunflower is adorned with a vintage earring center.

You Are My Sunshine

This bright handbag sports an outer pocket and sunny plaid lining.  The pocket is adorned with a vintage button earring.

More of my duct tape purses can be viewed here.

I like to link up to these great parties.

  1. The purses are all adorable. Being a lover of anything black and white, at first glance "Sunflower" was my favorite but "You Are My Sunshine" just might have taken its place! Congrats on your first article, Sue! I'm sure there will be many more to come.

  2. My ten year old niece is in love with all things creative, ESPECIALLY things made with duct tape! I am pinning this to share with her Mama!
