This project was so dang fun to do, I loved it.  So do any of you know anyone who is obsessed with Duck Tape® projects? making i.e. wallets, clutches, hair bows, etc.? Well its pretty darn fun, because when we think of Duck Tape® now a days, we aren’t imagining that icky metallic silver Duck Tape® anymore. Nope’ Duck Tape® now comes in 140 colors and patterns. Hello’ that is a lot of Duck Tape® to decide from and the creativity options are endless.

Here is my project and tutorial.
In the collage the steps start from 
top left and end bottom right.
To Begin:
# 1 Start with your first color of Duck Tape® and lay out 7 131/2 inch strips by 14 inches long. 
Your cutting mat acts as a great guide. Layer each of the 7 pieces one by one at the bottom 
of the strips of Duck Tape®.  
# 2 Flip over your Duck Tape® sheet and continue the same process on the other side.  
You can change up the Duck Tape® and alternate colors.
# 3 and step # 4 you will see in the collage image that in step # 3 that the edges are not clean,
 do your best and cut each side off with a clean straight line. Scissors work best, 
and not an xacto for this step. # 4 take some Duck Tape® and clean up the now cut sides with
some folded over duck tape. Trim where needed. 
# 5 fold your clutch in half, leaving a couple inches to the top for the flap to come over. 
You can fold your clutch width wise or length wise. Whatever you think looks best. 
# 6 once the clutch is folded in half rub the folds really well. Next take two more pieces
 of Duck Tape® and fold the Duck Tape® over the sides of the clutch to seal it shut. 
# 7 add some cut Duck Tape® to the sides of the folded clutch. You can just follow step 
# 6 for this, I wanted the top sides to match the purple so I did this step twice. Now your 
sides will be sealed and have a clean finish.
# 8 Add some sticky sided Velcro to the center of the clutch under flap and to the outside 
top front of the clutch. 
Last you can add some embellishments like my Duck Tape® flower, and rhinestones. 

To make Duck Tape® the flower
lay out “7” 5 inch long strips. Fold the first one in half, then take your second piece and
 layer it over the first piece. Do this to the side of the first piece and do this at an angle. 
Continue the same process until you have an almost full rounded shaped flower look. 
Next fold in the flower, sort of tucking and layering some of the pieces until you form
the flower shape you like. Use a hot glue gun where needed to adhere the pieces better. 
Add a button and rhinestone to the center of the flower, and hot glue it to the front of 
the clutch. You are all done now, and here is my Duck Tape® Clutch. 
“Bam” here is the finished product!

Do you like it? It was fun to make, and I promise you that you all would have a blast making some duck tape Prom projects. 

Have fun with this contest and enjoy it.
