How To Make A Duct Tape Purse

Duct Tape PurseA short while ago we had a fabulous glow party here at SPI. Actually the theme was a makeover glow party which included glow nail polish, glow hair extensions and a complete glow in the dark vanity station, it was a blast! I thought it only fitting to follow up with a little craft, so I came up with a DIY purse full of fun glow makeover party favors!

The purse handle is made from a glow stick folded in half; however it could be made from two glow sticks taped or glued together.

I used Card Stock as the base of the purse. I did not create a printable for this as I simply did a free hand drawing with a pencil, there is no call for precision here have fun with it! Once your first base is made you can use it to duplicate more bases or simply create a different base for each purse, it’s a little more work, but it makes for a unique design for each purse.

Glow Purse Materials

Once the base was cut out I used some left over fabric from a project I had done earlier. Cut your favorite fabric out using the base as a guide and glue the fabric to the base. Important don’t glue the base together first as I did :( This makes it far more difficult to glue the fabric to the base.

Once the fabric is glued on, I used a glue stick for this, fold the edges of the base to create an area to glue the purse together. I used a hot glue gun to glue the purse together. Hot glue is better for this part as the glue dries quicker and stronger.

Base For Purse

Next I activated a glow stick, do this before you attach it to the purse {I actually got this one right}. I then bent it in half and used duct tape to secure the handle to the purse bag. Viola, a glow in the dark purse handle, oh Versace would be so jealous.

The last thing to do is give your purse some bling! I used glow in the dark duct tape and fur balls, although rhinestones may have been better here. Fill it full of glow makeover goodies and picture the smiles on the girls’ faces!

That’s it, an inexpensive do it yourself gift bag purse full of glow in the dark makeover magic {so fun}!
