This week we have a real treat for you! Our guest youth blogger, Damein, is going to teach you how to make a cute, upcycled Duct Tape Purse.
“Wow, the Halo Foundation really did it! They made me a Junior Intern. Since I’ve become a junior intern I’ve had a lot of jobs, like helping with the developing of fashion accessories and products to sell, And posting to the Halo Youth blog. The internship helps me learn to become a better employee and leader.
Instructions for Duct Tape Purse:
1.First cut 20 strips of 10 inch duct tape (same tape color or different)
2.Next, lay 10 strips out in a row next to each other
3. tape down across all the ends
