Morgan is reaching for the snacks she packed.  Dance rehearsal is right after school.  It’s a long day and she needs to refuel and have something to eat before practice.  This little insulated lunch bag is just right for on-the-go!

Today she packed strawberries, celery sticks, carrots and broccoli.  Mmmm, it tastes so good when she is hungry!

Have you seen these colorful insulated lunch bags before?  Inspired by the fun patterns and colors, I created a doll size version out of duct tape!


  • duct tape
  • scissors
  • ruler

Cut 4 strips of duct tape.

  • 2 strips- 3 1/4″ long
  • 2 strips- 2 1/2″ long

Lay out a piece of duct tape that is 2 1/2″ long with it’s adhesive up .  Take a piece of duct tape that is 3 1/4″ long .  Place it perpendicular to the first tape (adhesive pointing down) with the adhesive from the bottom tape sticking out equally on 3 sides.

Flip it over.

Fold the top down on itself.

Flip it back over and there is still adhesive exposed on three sides.  Set it aside and make another panel the same as the first.

The handle openings can be cut out with scissors.  The bottom of the handle opening runs along the duct tape seam.  The top of the handle opening makes an arch above it.  To get the holes started, fold the top flap in half and make a small cut in the duct tape above the seam.  Unfold the flap and you should have a small hole to get your scissors into for cutting.  Follow the seam for the bottom of the handle opening and cut an arch for the top.  Repeat with the other panel.

Now sandwich the two panels together, matching up handles and the adhesive sides.

Round all the corners by trimming with scissors.  Be sure to not trim too close to the seams.

Open it up and slip in a doll size lunch or a snack!

It’s great for those busy days when your dolls will need something to eat on-the-go!

These little insulated lunch bags are really so quick and easy to make!
