Yesterday was the first day of our Spring Break but it did not feel like Spring at all. We woke up to more snow than I ever want to see on Spring Break ever again! It was not an "outside" day so we spent the time working on crafts.
B was kind enough to let me take a ton of pictures of her while she worked on some duct tape coin purses today. Secretly, I think she loves being a regular feature on the blog!
First B started by cutting four pieces of duct tape about the same size. Then she cut a fifth piece which she then cut into thirds lengthwise.
B started making "duct tape fabric" just like she did when she made the duct tape bows. Carefully laying one piece of tape on top of the other piece to make a seam.
Then B takes the last two big pieces and carefully lines them up. Sticky side is placed onto sticky side in order to create the "fabric".
Once B has smoothed out her fabric, she folds the bottom up about 3/4 of the way.
Next B takes one of the smaller strips of duct tape and trims it to size. B uses this piece to wrap the side of the pouch. She repeats this process on the other side of the pouch.
Then B holds down the top of the duct tape fabric and holds it in place with a left-over piece of duct tape. (B wanted to let you know that you could also use velcro with a sticky backing too.) The duct tape clasp can be open and closed many times. Duct really is a wonder product!!!
Finally, B raided her father's change tray and filled her new coin purse with her Daddy's spare change (Hubby's note- This was news to me as I edited this). Maybe if I smile as sweet as she does, I could raid Hubby's wallet and start some re-decorating projects. Dare to dream right!?!
