Have you seen the dresses that some folks have crafted up out of Duck Tape®? Simply put…they are amazing. Serious works of art. Duck Tape® sent me a fun package full of bright colored tape and asked me to get creative. I was to come up with a fun Prom accessory that was created with Duck Tape®. Oh the possibilities!! A clutch purse immediately popped in my head. I thought it would be useful, unique and so cute in this floral pattern. Here is how I went about creating the purse…
2 pieces of foam board cut to 9 by 6
Duck Tape® of your choice (I used 2)
- Lay the 2 pieces of foam board side by side long ways leaving 1/2 inch between them.
- Place 2 strips of tape (the outside) to connect the boards.
- Flip over and tape the inside of the clutch (seen above in purple)
- Overlap the edges on the front and back by extending 2 pieces of Duck Tape®. This will be folded inside the clutch so that nothing is able to fall out on the side. Also allows clutch to open wider.
- Flip over again and finish taping the front. I left a small space to allow some white to show through.
- Finish by folding the clutch together and taping the “seams” on the inside. Trim the edges and glue on some pompoms. I super glued a piece of Velcro for the closure.
How fun right?!?!
