Popsicle & Duck Tape Purse {tutorial} #craftswithCara

Hello! Good morning! Today I am so excited to turn the blog over to one of my favorite people in the whole world & my best crafting partner ~ my daughter, Cara! Cara loves to make things just about as much as I do! ;) Take it away, Cara!


My name is Cara. I am 8. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And I like to read books and craft like my mom. And I am going to play soccer. And I show cows. And this year I am going to show some chickens. I have 1 sister and three brothers and a mom and a dad. My sister has 5 rabbits. My big brother has a dog. Today I am going to show you how I made my cute purse with popsicle sticks and duck tape.

Popsicle Stick & Duck Tape Purse by Cara

First, I put 10 popsicle sticks in a row. Then, I taped the popsicle sticks together {I made 6 of those}.

After I did that I taped those together in a cube shape.

Then I put two long pieces of tape together and taped it on the box for the strap. Then TA DA it was made.

  1. It looks awesome Cara! I am sure Addi will love to make one too! Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. Cara, My daughter is the same age and she will love this! Her younger brothers (5year twins) will probably want to make it as a treasure box. Absolutely perfect. We already have some fabulous tape to use. Thanks for great instructions! Keep up the wonderful work!
