Duck Tape Market Bag

Yes it’s covered in Duck Tape (printed duck tape I found at Target).
I had bought the tape to cover some cardboard box’s and make them into decorative storage boxes for all of my craft stuff.  Well I had one of those a-ha moments and had to try this out and see if it would
work.   As you can see it did.  Yeh! 

Now don’t get me wrong I love Shrek and Donkey but I love the leopard print a lot more and can’t wait to take it to the market. 

You need:
a plastic market bag, exact-o knife and duck tape.

I found it easier to tape down the sides of the bag getting as close to the seam as possible.  Then coming in with the rest of the strips overlapping them about 1/4 of an inch of each other.  I left about  a 1 inch overhang at the top and bottom of the bag to wrap over the edges.  Then came back and covered up the edges with a piece of tape going in the opposite direction to finish off the bottom of the bag and finish off the top inside edge of the bag.  You ladies are crafty, whatever works for you is awesome.  Just go with the flow.






  1. What a brilliant idea! I saw this duct tape at Joann's and wanted to by some but I was not sure what I'd use it for…I am going to try this!

  2. Jeanna – this is such a great idea. I have so many of those bags with crazy prints – I would much rather have the leopard. Thanks for sharing – Hope you had a wonderful weekend!~Stephanie
