Minnie in Paris Duct Tape Handbag Tutorial


  • Good glue – we used Alene's Original Tacky Glue (I love that stuff)
  • Plastic headbands (you can also use metal but I couldn't any really durable ones)
  • Duct tape
  • Washi tape


  1. We need to make a big sheet of tape “fabric”  We want it to be 2 1/2 times wider than our bag and around 3 inches taller than the height of the bag.  We start by Layering the first side of our tape fabric sheet.
  2. Next we add the second side to our tape fabric by layering our tape sticky side to sticky side.
  3. Once we have our sheet finished, we need to trim.  Our bag was 7 inches wide and 2 inches deep.  To figure out how wide your sheet should be, multiply both the width and depth by two and add everything together.  In our example, we would say 7×2=14,  2×2=4, 14+4=18.  So we need our sheet to be 18 inches wide.  Trim it up!  Our bag was 8 inches tall, so we measure our height and trim.  Remember to save the scraps, as we will use those to create the bottom and strap for the bag.
  4.  Create your sides.  Measure 2 inches in and make a fold from top to bottom.  Now measure 7 inches from the fold that you just created and fold again.  Finally, measure another 2 inches from the last fold and..yup…fold again.  Think of it like this, you are trying to create the sides of the bag.
  5. Using one of the scrap pieces, create the bottom of the bag.  It should measure 7×2.
  6. Now begin attaching the bottom with the Mickey tape one side at a time.
  7. Reinforce all of the edges with the Mickey tape.
  8. Using the scrap tape fabric, cut a handle.
  9. Attach the handle with the Mickey tape by running the tape around the top of the bag.
  10. Decorate the outside of the bag as you wish. Enjoy the bag!

About Minnie in Paris

You didn't think that I would leave you without telling you about the book, did you? Fashion is Minnie's passion! And, as a result, she's been invited to show her bows on the runways of Paris!

Minnie must round up the mischievous little bunnies, find Penguini, and make her bows in time for the show. Will she make it?   Readers are treated to a stunning tour of famous Parisian locations, from the Louvre to Tuilleries Gardens to the Eiffel tower, to a classic Parisian bistro—all in search of Penguini's bunnies.
