Here's another super cute project you can do with our newly discovered duct tape tarp material, cupcake purses! Get as creative as you like with your stencil, decorate, and BAM - you'll have the fanciest bag of them all.
Print two patterns and tape them together on their straight center lines. You can find the template under the Stats tab above
Cut out a rectangle of tarp slightly larger then your pattern and trace the pattern onto the tarp.
Choose your two tape colors and cover the tarp, starting from the center. You can save tape by only using enough tape to cover the lines of the pattern.
Once your pattern is completely covered, take your template, lay it back down on the tape and trace it again.
Cut out the pattern.
Fold the bag up to create the shape of your bag and connect the cup corners with the same color tape, just like a puzzle! Secure all four sides and trim excess.
Reinforce the inside corners of the bag with tape.
Lay out two pieces of tape, anywhere from 12-16 inches long, and fold into thirds.
Round off the edges and punch a hole at the top of each.
Punch holes in the top corners of the purse.
Take the brads and stick them through the hole on the inside (looks neater).
Time to start decorating! Put the duct tape on the parchment paper, cut out sprinkle shapes (or anything you like) and peel off, just like a sticker!
To decorate even more, add a cute wave to the cupcake base using tape, and cut strips of tapes to create the ridges. Use your imagination!
Add a magnet as a closure. Take one magnet, stick it to the sticky side of the tape and adhere to the purse. Lay another piece of tape on top of the piece that already has the magnet - but lay this piece sticky side up. Drop the magnet and kiss the two together, by closing the bag, secure the piece of tape to the other side and you are all done!
