Make your own Duct Tape Pencil Case

It is back to school time which means that it is time to stock up on crayons, markers, pencils and more! I love back to school time because there is something exciting about starting a new year.  This year, you can Make your own Duct Tape Pencil Case so you can start the first day of school in style!

Make your own Duct Tape Pencil Case

Materials: white, blue, yellow, light blue, gold, orange, green, red, and fuchsia duct tape; 2 round neodyne magnets, key chain ring

Tools: self-healing cutting mat, corked back metal ruler, craft knife, parchment paper, 1/8″ hole puncher

Make your own Duct Tape Pencil Case1. Place a parchment paper measuring 10″ wide x 15″ high on top of your worktable. Starting from the bottom, place 9 strips of white duct tape across the parchment paper. Be sure the strips overlap along the long edges by at least 1/8″. Flip over and place the duct tape/parchment paper on your worktable in the landscape position. Peel off parchment paper. Starting at the bottom of the half-made fabric, place 6 strips of blue duct tape across it. Be sure the strips overlap along the long edges by at least 1/8″. Trim down the fabric to 10″ x 15″.
