Hello Kitty Duct Tape Purse w/ Ruffles

A Hello Kitty Duct Tape Purse w/ Ruffles and a very happy little girl.  I've had it in my head from the moment I saw this roll of Hello Kitty duct tape that my little girl needed a purse made out of it.  I wasn't sure exactly what that was going to look like.  Since I've been on a ruffle kick I decided to try a ruffled purse.  When I put the first ruffle on my little girl said, "Oh Pretty!".  If that isn't approval I dont' know what is.  So it was fun.  See more pictures below.

The inside.

The back.

On it's side.

It just happens to fit compact scriptures.  My guess is she will be begging me to use my scriptures on Sunday.

Here she is with her new purse.  The contents?  Her rat (yes she has a rat), a little plastic purse, and several tubes of lipgloss.  What more does a girl need?

Full Size Duct Tape Wallet w/ Ruffles

I loved the last wallet I did so much I had to make a larger one for myself.  This I did for cash.  It would fit a check book just fine too.  The last post I did was a credit card sized wallet.  I won't be posting any of these on ebay until I get them just right.  I don't like how I closed the sides on this and I plan on changing it.  I adore ruffles though.  The pictures don't do it justice.  I have to figure out how to do pictures better or have someone else do them for me.  Volunteers?  If you get inspiration from these and make one yourself let me know.  I'd love to see it.

Duct Tape Wallet w/ Ruffles

Excuse my hand.  I love crafts but picture taking is hit or miss with me.  Isn't this A-dorable.  My daughter has a birthday party to go to today and for the little girl's gift we put together a purse that any little lady would love.  I thought it needed a wallet and in my mind I saw this.  It came out just how I thought it would.  All it's waiting for is hubby to get home from the hardware store with some black adhesive velcro and we are good to go.  Have I told you how I love duct tape?  I know I have but really it can't be said enough.


Backside with the flap closed.  I'm glad to take custom orders for this wallet.  Just let me know what you see in your mind and I can make it happen.  Happy crafting.  :)

My Pop Rocks

I am totally kicking myself that I didn't get a better picture of these but I thought I would share them here anyway.  I really thought this was going to be something somebody else already thought of but when I googled I didn't find anything.  So I made my own stickers and I was off to the races.  So if you need a Father's Day, Grandparent's Day or any day you want to show the Pop in your life he is special gift then here you go.  The simpliest thing to do is save the image below to your computer.  Then use your word (or similar) program to make labels.  If you don't know how to do that already google is your friend.  I put two images on each label.  Print and cut and stick them on your pop rocks.  Couldn't be simplier.  I did this for the nursery kids at my church to give to their dad for Father's Day.  They were a hit.  So enjoy. If you do this yourself or share it on your website let me know.

I Love Duct Tape

Duct tape makes me giddy...a little too giddy.  I knew from the moment I saw a baby duct taped to a wall online that I had a problem.  The words that came out of my mouth were, "That is terrible!" but the thought in the back of my mind was...but soooo cool.  Look how secure that is...and that kid is happy!  Who wouldn't be happy?  It's duct tape!!!  I'm always on a quest for all things duct tape and when I saw this free purse pattern that Craft Gossip featured from Nette Vivante I knew that is had duct tape written all over it.  Here is the link.  This is the picture that caught my eye. 

Be sure to visit the link and grab the free printable pattern and instructions.

  So I printed the pattern and I sat down in front of the tv last night and put together a purse.  Here is my duct tape version.


Cute right?  Can you tell the inside is red.  I kinda love it.  Of course not everyone can pull it off.  Being over 30 I probably shouldn't try but I probably will.  The outside pocket was my idea.  I think if I were to sew a version of this purse I would do the pocket.  I just made it deeper than the decoration the pattern came with.  My phone is kinda big so I wanted to make sure it wouldn't fall out.  I'm going to make some changes to the pattern and then I'm going to make a zebra and hot pink one.  Then I'm thinking a really big pool bag.  What is better than a duct tape pool bag?
