Step 1: 

Download the template from the Stats tab above. Cut out the flap piece, trace it onto your duct tape fabric and cut out the flap.

Step 2: 

You should have already made a duct tape bag body.  Attach the flap to the bag with a piece of matching duct tape.  For this bag, the flap extends a bit above the to of the bag.

Step 3: 

Flip the bag over and attach the flap to the inside. I find it easier to use smaller pieces of tape to secure the inside of the bag.

Step 4: 

Next we will assemble the face.  Create duct tape stickers in the shape and color denoted on the template.  Attach the yellow spots on the turtles' shell.

Step 5: 

Attach the bottom of his shell.

Step 6: 

Attach the head.

Step 7: 

Next comes the mouth.

Step 8: 

Add the eyes.

Step 9: 

Add his spots.

Step 10: 

Lift up the flap and attach his feet.

Step 11: 

Finally, add the closure.  Here we are using a magnet.  Attach the magnet closure as we have done in our past tutorials.  Tape one magnet down on the inside of the flap.  Lay another piece of tape sticky side up on top of that magnet.  Drop the second magnet on the first to ensure correct polarity.

Step 12: 

Close the flap and press down on the tape to seal the magnet on the bag body.

Step 13: 

All done.
