Making duct tape handbags can range in level of difficulty. Duct tape handbags being sold to celebrities online are obviously going to be a bit more sophisticated than the kind of bag that you will make the first time you try. Start simple by making a square handbag. All you do is create a sheet of duct tape “fabric” that is twice the size that you want the purse to be. Simply fold the sheet of duct tape together, and use a long strip of duct tape that will go across the bottom and sides of the bag as well as up the bag to form the strap. You could also make strips of duct tape and weave them together into a sheet before folding them over and creating the straps.
