This summer I helped with girl's camp at my church. I worked with a fabulous crafty lady, Wendy. These Duck Tape® pencil pouches were her idea! They are awesome! You can use for just about anything! They are cute & tough! Just fill them up, zip them up & throw them in your bag or backpack. :)

You can find Duck Tape® in 200 prints and colors to choose from, making each project unique in its own way. Duck Tape® is an easy crafting medium for kids of all ages. Everyone can get crafty with Duck Tape®. Duck Tape® often does not require additional supplies such as glue, scissors, staples, etc. It's your one stop crafty go to! I love it!

For this project you’ll need:

Duck Tape®

zipper sealed quart size bag

vinyl lettering (optional)

{Find Duck Tape here.}

That's it!!! :)

Cover one side of your bag with Duck Tape®. Let it overlap a little bit on each side.

Flip your bag over.

Then put on some more Duck Tape®.

Trim your edges with scissors.

I added some fun vinyl lettering to my pouch. This is totally optional!

All done! The only thing left is to fill it up with some fun school supplies!

Cute! Be sure to follow the hashtag #DucktoSchool for more back to school ideas! :)

  1. My daughter is going to love making this! Thanks for the idea! 😊

  2. This is such a great idea Ginger! I know my daughter will love making one of these. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I love this idea, Ginger! I want to make up a few of these pencil pouches for myself!

  4. GInger, I thought your idea was a very cute one at that, but one thing troubles me, being a plastic bag, it's a given that the plastic will break over a period of time, at the bottom crease or folding of the bag itself, I would reinforce by overlapping the tape to the other side/face of the bag just to strengthen that plastic crease and not just cut the excess. Given that the bag will take on weight from what you'll place inside, I think it would be smart to reinforce it. Whatcha think? Thanks for your helpful and cute craft!

    1. I didn't have any problems, but that sounds like a great idea! :) Thanks for stopping by!
