    Hi online i saw a picture of your duct tape pouches. I saw one really stunning pink ruffled coin pouch and I am asking if you can post a tutorial on it? I make duct tape stuff very frequently but so far have never seen anything like that. How to you do the ruffles? Thanks! ~Emma

      Hello Emma! Thanks for your message! I think you are talking about the ones I did for the Chicago Craft Social. I created a tutorial HERE that shows how to do ruffles on a pouch. It's pretty easy once you get the hang of it. For the small pink one you saw I made a smaller base pouch that was tapered slightly at the top. Then I made the ruffles more bunchy rather than pleated, and they went all the way around the pouch on both sides. Unless you were talking about the one I did for Seventeen Magazine 2012 Stuck at Prom. Gosh come to think of it, I've made so many different versions of these I've lost track! LOL They are all cute and I'm sure the one you create will be awesomely fabulous!!!
