Duck Tape® Cat Trick or Treat Bag
Use one of the coolest crafts to create a Duck Tape® Cat Trick or Treat Bag - for the coolest treat bag in your neighborhood!
- Time:1/2 hour
1For the bag sides, start with Midnight Madness. Tear off a 14 inch piece of tape, laying down on work surface horizontally, sticky side up. Continue with strips overlapping 1/4 inch until a 14 inch x 14 inch sheet is created. Repeat by placing same length of tape and lay down overlapping onto the sticky side of the first sheet, creating the fabric for one piece (bag side). Repeat to make second piece (bag side).
2Cut 12 inch circle from fabric. A bowl with a 12 inch diameter makes a good template.
3To create the bag, place a length of tape that matches the sides of the bag onto cutting mat. With a ruler, or by ripping it, create 6 inch x 1 inch pieces of tape. Create as many mini pieces as are needed to attach them around outside of bag folding over edges to create a seal. Do not tape top opening! (To create a wider bag, create a fabric that is 3 inch x 8 inch. Attach with the small pieces of tape on the outside & inside of the bag, creating a gusset.)
4To create whiskers, tear or cut Winking White tape to desired length. Lay down sticky side up. Cut wire to lengths and attach in middle of tape. Tear off another piece of tape 1/2 inch shorter and lay over wired tape, sticky side to sticky side. Make sure to leave approximately 1/2 inch of tape sticky. Cut around wire to desired width. Repeat this step for as many whiskers as you would like. Wrap around a pencil to create curls. Pull open to loosen.
5Cut two triangles from Midnight Madness for ears from the excess tape fabric, smaller triangles for inside of ears and triangle nose with Funky Flamingo tape. Cut eyes from Island Green tape. Cut center of cat eye as shown with desired color (sample and supplies use Sunburst Yellow). Attach all pieces of cat face. Place nose made from Funky Flamingo over center of whiskers; this will help secure in place.
