Duct Tape Backpack

A duct tape bag with straps that go around your arms at whatever length you decide. Inside can be any color you would like, I recommend gray. Card board on back and bottom and holes for bow on top.


Approximate Time 2 to 3 days


  • card board
  • 1 roll of duct tape for inside gray is the best
  • 1 or 2 or 3 rolls of duct tape for outside colors
  • a string like a shoelace


  1. Cut a piece of cardboard out in a circle or square.
  2. Put gray tape on one side and colors on other side.
  3. Start ripping pieces of tape to whatever length you want.
  4. Attach them to cardboard.
  5. On the sticky side, apply gray tape.
  6. Leave side for a rectangular piece of cardboard.
  7. Put cardboard on and tape to the bottom of circle.
  8. Just put colors on outside, you can put gray on the inside but you don't have to.
  9. Take two long pieces of tape and fold them over (these will be the straps)
  10. Put straps on with another piece of tape
  11. Poke holes in bag for string (2 on top, 2 on top of the front
  12. Make string go through front first then through top and tie a bow.

Can you explain more in the directions? I don't really get how to make it, where do you put the card board? So many questions, I need help! Please help, this looks really cool.
