Duct Tape Pencil Pouch Tutorial


  • Quart size slider freezer bag.
  • Duct tape in your favorite color. Or colors!
  • Letter stickers.
  • Scissors.

Start by deciding what size you want your pencil pouch to be. I used a quart size freezer bag, which is the perfect width to be able to fit a variety of pens, pencils, scissors, and calculators into. I wanted a fairly deep one, so I cut about 1/3 of the bottom of the freezer bag off. You can make it the full depth of the bag, or you can make a super short one for just carrying around the basics. So now you just want to take strips of your duct tape and lay them across the bag, starting that the top and making sure to leave about an inch of over hang on either side. Add your next strip, over lapping slightly.

When you get to the bottom, make sure that your last strip is half on the bag and half on your work surface. This last strip is going to form the bottom of the bag. Flip the whole thing over. Now cut out the corners of your bottom strip like shown. Then take the bottom strip and fold it up onto this side of the bag.

Next, fold in the side edges. Now take a piece of duct tape and place the edge just inside the edge of the bag, smooth it down, and trim it off just before the end of the bag.

Repeat this all the way down the bag to cover the entire back side of the bag. Now just take your letter stickers and you can place your name on the bag. I chose to do a minimal straight line, but you can really use your imagination and even your favorite character stickers to decorate your pencil pouch. It opens easily, is water resistant, and I filled mine with some of my favorite colored gel pens!

I hope you enjoyed this Duct Tape Pencil Pouch Tutorial, and have fun making your customized creations!
