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 lookout 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 are}.

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 to this post as well with your link.
