Can you believe that summer is almost over and back-to-school time is here?! Whether you're thinking about teacher gifts or a fun project for your back-to-schooler, this easy Duck Tape® tote can be cranked out in half an hour. Yes, really!
One roll of Duck Tape®
2 woven straps, cut to whatever length you need. Mine are 9 inches.
First, cut a piece of Duck Tape® to 10" long. Take one of your straps and place each end 3 inches from the end of the Duck Tape® and 2 inches from each other. Press firmly to adhere to the tape.
Cut another piece of Duck Tape® to 10 inches and place on top of the previous piece, sandwiching the ends of the strap.
Now, cut off 4 more 10" pieces of Duck Tape® and overlap them about 1/2" as shown above.
4 more 10" pieces placed on top form one side of the tote! Repeat these steps to form the other side.
When you're ready to join the two sides together, place them on a piece of Duck Tape® sticky side up, and fold the piece in half to connect the two sides.
Do both sides this way and then the bottom and that's it - a cute Duck Tape® tote.
You can use this tote as a catch-all for carting things to and from school, as a lunch bag, or make a smaller version with a little velcro to use as a pencil/marker/crayon case!
