Make a Duct Tape Wallet DIY Gifts

Remember the Capri Sun and Kool-Aid juice bags? When they first came out I wanted one of every flavor and color for the girls. They were so cute to me and still are even though the fad has kind of faded out. They’ll come back in style so save your juice bags and juice cartons. The below bag is by far the cutest one I’ve seen. I found it on Pinterest and have been watching to see if they have one that becomes available on They have a lot of other neat items I’d love to buy: from mirrors to keychains and all are made with recycled materials.

This post isn’t about those purses, I got sidetracked. :) It happens. I’ve been in a D.I.Y. mood all month. The kids have a lot of time on their hands during the holidays and I’m always on the look out for something they can make or something I can make for them {when they are getting along nicely so I can work on crafts that is}.

Back to the duct tape wallets.

The first time I saw a duct tape wallet, I was amazed at how creative some individuals are. There are many duct tape tutorials on YouTube but I guarantee you won’t find one better than this one. Go grab your duct tape (you can buy printed duct tape just about anywhere these days), cutting board (I use one that I got for cutting quilt squares), ruler and something to cut the tape with. If you are having a homemade Christmas this year (I miss the ones we used to have), this is a great gift idea for boys and girls. I even know some women and men who have one or two in their own collection.

After you make your wallet, please post a photo on my FB page to show me the colors and designs you used. I’ll be sure to add it on this post as well with your link.

    It’s truly amazing what you can create with duct tape. I’ve seen some pretty cool designs when I go to the stores now. It’s amusing how this market has really opened up over the past couple of years!

    My kids have made some of these before. I love how they can use different colors to make them different.

    That is uniquely beautiful. However, I know that I wouldn’t have the time or patience to make something beautiful as that!

    My son had a duct tape wallet given to him. The nice thing is there is such a wide variety of duct tape styles to make a personalized wallet. Will have to save this for my son to try.

    I just LOVE the idea of playing with duct tape! They have so many cool prints out (boy friendly too!). I’ll have to show this video to my son and hope that he’d surprise me with a superwoman handbag :D

    This is a cool project. It reminds me of one of my wallets. Yup, it’s that small and pretty much looks like that. I still see those juice bags around but they’re very pricey now.

    I am telling you. That Duct tape can be used for so many things. I have actually seen them tape a person to the wall with it…. and it held.
