Duct Tape Lunch Bag
Welcoming the new addition to the line of duct tape products- the duct tape lunch bag! This lunch bag is is easily cleaned in case of a spill and very unique. (I will put some Velcro on the flap once I get some.)
Well why buy this unique lunchbox from someone else, when you yourself want to be creative and try to make one. Well here is a tutorial i made to help you. If you have any questions about the steps please leave a comment. Don’t get frustrated if your having a hard time. Duct tape is very tricky to manipulate, and it just takes practice.
-Children should be supervise while making this project due to the scissors and/or x-acto knife involved.
-Scissors will get sticky blades from cutting the duct tape.
You will need:
-Two rolls of any color of duct tape
-Scissors (they’ll get sticky from the duct tape so don’t use an expensive pair)
or an x-acto knife
Step 1: Make a strip of duct tape fabric about 4″x8″. I used the color that will be used most throughout the project(in this case yellow). This piece will be used as the bottom of the bag. We will call this piece piece “A.”
- Piece “A” (4″x 8″) (bottom of the bag)
Step 2: Make two strips of duct tape fabric about 4″x 7 1/2.” Again i used yellow for these pieces. These pieces will be the sides of the bag. We will call these pieces “B” & “C.”
- Pieces “B” & “C” (4″ x 7 1/2″) (sides of the bag)
Step 3:Make another piece of duct tape fabric 8″x 7 1/2″. I made this piece yellow also. This piece will be the front of the bag. We will call this piece “D.”
- Piece “D” (8″x 7 1/2″) (front of the bag)
These are what the following pieces you have made so far should look like:
- Pieces “A”, “B”, “C”, and “D”
Step 4: Make a piece of duct tape fabric 15 1/2″ x 8″. I made this piece out of my secondary color (in this case purple). This piece will be the back of the bag that comes over as the flap. We will call this piece “E.”
- Piece “E” (15 1/2″ x 8″) (back of the bag which comes over as the flap)
Step 5: Tape strips “B” and “C” to the small sides of strip “A.”
- Piece “B” and “C” taped to the small sided of piece “A”
Step 6: Tape side “D” to the top of strip “A” so it looks like this:
- Strip “D” taped to the top of strip “A”
Step 7: Then tape strip “E” to the bottom of strip “A” the same way you did with strip “D” in step 6. (sorry i forgot to take a picture of this step.
Step 8: Begin to tape the sides of the bag together by taping side “C” to side “E”. Put tape on the inside and outside of the bag. I find it easier to tape the outside of the sides first then the inside. This is a picture with the first side taped up:
- Side “C” taped to side “E”
Step 9: Next tape side “B” to side “E.”
- Side “B” taped to side “E”
Step 10: Tape sides “D” to sides “B” and “C.”
- Side “D” taped to sides “B” and “C”
Step 11: Cut a piece of duct tape about 8 ” long. Fold it in half. This will be your handle.
Step 12: Tape the piece of duct tape to the top of the bag.
- The Handle
Step 13: Next trim the flap so that it comes almost to the bottom of the bag.
Step 14: Round the edges of the flap. I use a roll of duct tape and trace it with a pen or pencil. You can also use a compass.
Step 14: Now that you have created the bag you may put a buckle or Velcro on the underside of the flap to secure it.
Step 15: Decorate you new lunch bag and enjoy!
