Hershey Bar Wrapper Duct Tape Purse

To make this purse, I used Hershey bar wrappers and duct tape. I did use some dectorative paper inside to make the pockets a little showy. It was fun and all the kids ask me where I got it and it is very durable. hersey bar duct tape bag


Approximate Time: 3 hours



  • duct tape
  • clear packing tape
  • decorative paper for pockets
  • colored duct tape
  • ribbon for handles
  • buttons to decorate
  • clear contact paper
  • collected Hershey Bar wrappers
  • dental floss
  • large needle


  1. I layed the pattern I wanted size wise and put it on a piece of clear contact paper on my glass table. I only uncovered an inch or so on the top and bottom and folded back the paper and stuck it on my table.

  2. Then put stripes of duct tape down on the contact paper so you can lay the Hershey wrappers on top of the sticky duct tape in stripes. Cover the surface you want for the outside of your purse or whatever you are making.

  3. Put it upside down and then double tape the other side again to make it stronger.

  4. Do the same for your dividers that you want and the pockets you want. Inside of Hershey Bar Wrapper Duct Tape Purse


  5. Tape them all in with your duct tape.

  6. Take a strong ribbon, preferably ribbed, as it is stronger and make it the length you want for the handle.

  7. Slit holes in the side and run the ribbon up through and over the whole bottom and sew ends together. I used dental floss for sewing to make it stronger.

  8. Tape it all together and make your purse or gift whatever you want it to be. I decorated mine with pretty buttons.

  9. Go shopping. Enjoy! Hershey Bar Wrapper Purse

How did you do the design; like wen you were laying it out? Was it already together like that or did you tape all the sides and stuff together?
