Over the past few days we have received many requests from Jo-Ann shoppers asking if we had instructions for making the colorful chain-link purse or clutch referenced in a recent Jo-Ann sales flyer. This clutch, made with Duck® brand duct tape, is mentioned in Jo-Ann’s July 11, 2010 edition under the Just Ask Jo-Ann Ideas section and is pictured on the left.
I verified that this article pointed readers to a link at Joann.com/jul10 that, as many of our readers noted, is not functioning properly. Since we had so many requests for instructions to make this duct tape chain-link purse, I did some research and ended up contacting Joann.com’s Customer Service Department on Thursday (7/15). This afternoon I received a helpful reply from Frances who also sent me the following instructions for making Joann.com’s duct tape chain-link clutch (click link to view and print or download this 2-page, 1.4MB .pdf document).
I hope you enjoy these free directions to making your own duct tape clutch from Jo-Ann. Feel free to share this page with your friends and offer your own tips in our comments section below. I appreciate Joann.com making this file available to me.
