Make a Duct Tape Coin Purse

Coin Purse 300One of the neatest projects in Tonia Jenny’s new book Duct Tape Discovery Workshop is the coin purse. Not only does the purse have a functional zipper in the form of a sandwich bag closure, you can decorate the purse exactly how you want it! In this video tutorial, Tonia shows you how to make the duct tape coin purse, similar to the one from the book (left), from start to finish. And as you’ll see, this project is super easy and fun to make!


Materials List

  • cutting mat
  • craft knife
  • straightedge
  • duct tape of your choice (at least 3 colors works well)
  • self-sealing sandwich bag
  • parchment paper
  • permanent marker
