Step 1: Make sheets of tape Cut eight long strips of tape to your desired bag width. Place the strips, sticky side down, on your cutting board, overlapping the strips by 1 inch to make sheets of duct tape fabric. Step 2: Overlap sheets of tape Flip the sheet over and cover the sticky side with another layer of overlapping tape strips. No sticky sides should be visible when you're finished. Tip Duct tape comes in many colors. Consider varying the color of your bag for a two-tone tote. Step 3: Repeat the steps Make another sheet of duct tape fabric the same size as the first for the tote bag body, and then make two smaller sheets for the sides and one for the bottom. Step 4: Fasten the pieces together Lay one of the large pieces on top of the other and then join the body of the tote to the side pieces and the bottom by folding small pieces of tape around the three sides, leaving the top open. Step 5: Make the handles Cut two 20-inch pieces of tape and fold each piece in half lengthwise. Attach the handles to the body of the bag with staples and then cover the staples with tape. Step 6: Decorate the bag Use stencils and a pen to trace appliques onto complementary-colored tape. Cut out the designs with a utility knife and stick them onto your tote. Did You Know?
