Duck Tape Fox Backpack - so cute

I love crafting with Duck Tape®! One of the great things about Duck Tape® is that you can create a super-durable fabric with it, and create just about anything you can imagine. Anything you can sew, you can Duck Tape®! I love this Fox backpack I found over at the Duck Tape® website -- did you know they have hundreds of Ducktivities there for you to be inspired by?

Thanks to Duck Tape® for allowing us to reprint this great project tutorial! And thanks to Walmart for sponsoring this post and providing this great content. Don't forget to buy Duck Tape at Walmart -- they have a huge selection of tons of colors, patterns and styles of Duck Tape®. Check the crafts, home improvement, and school supplies section for a great selection.

    You forgot one of your materials: A 12-pack of Duck Brand® Tape Sheets. They’re 8.65″ by 10″, so you’ll need at least four. Yes, Walmart has them.

    Or you can make sheets of any size by interweaving regular Duck Tape. Which I’d probably do because I’d want a backpack bigger than a 9.5″ by 12″ binder. But kids will love the smaller sizes.
