What You Will Need

  • Duck tape
  • Resealable plastic sandwich bags
  • Scissors
  • Googly eyes optional


  • Starting at the top (open) end of the bag and working from side to side, apply strips of Duck tape in an overlapping method.
  • When you get to the bottom of the bag, place a strip across the bag so that it folds from the front over to the back of the bag.
  • Next, add your Duck tape to the other side of the bag. Start again at the top (open) end of the bag and move down toward the bottom.
    If you need to, you can overlap the bottom strip over the strip that covers the bottom of the bag.
  • Use scissors to carefully trim the tape on the sides to the size of the bag. Be careful not to cut the bag!
  • Cut two more strips and apply them around the side edges of your bag to create a clean, finished look.


  • Take care not to apply Duck tape at the top of your bag so that it's taped closed. If that happens, your bag is useless!
  • When you trim the tape on the sides of your bag to the same size as your bag, be careful to avoid cutting the bag itself.
