How to Make Gift Bags Out of Duct Tape (page 1 of 2)

Make customized wine caddies using cardboard and decorative duct tape. These bags are great for wine because they're waterproof, reusable and slightly thermal, so they will keep beverages cool.

More in Decorating

If you plan on making a bunch of these fun gift bags, save money by using plain, inexpensive duct tape for the inside of the bag and leave the decorative tape for the outside of the bag.

Materials and Tools:

hot glue gun
duct tape (lots of colors and styles)
wine bottle

Make the Base of the Bag

Lay out strips of duct tape so they slightly overlap. Lay them sticky side up. Lay more duct tape sticky side down on top of sticky side up. Leave one sticky strip uncovered, so you can attach both sides together (so you'll have no more sticky sides). Make it wide enough and long enough to go around the bottle but not cover up the top.

Create the Bottom

Cut a piece of cardboard the shape of the bottom of the bag. Cover both sides of the cardboard with the tape (decorative tape on the bottom). Make the bottom side about an inch longer than the inner side so there is about an inch of sticky side exposed.
