It’s a poorly kept secret that I’m obsessed with Duck Tape®. It’s so good for so many things. I’ve made an iPod case, a wristlet, a Tardis and an iPad case with their fun supplies! I have an impressive stash of tape and I keep finding new fun designs that must get added to my collection immediately.
I’ve had a small collection of the Duck Tape® sheets for a while now and I was looking forward to using them on something fun…like a penil case for back to school! All you need are two sheets of the tape, a 9″ zipper and a little extra Duck Tape® to finish off the edges.
Start by peeling back a small amount of the sheet and securing the zipper. You’ll want to do this on both sides, making sure you work primarily from the back. (That way and bubbles or ridges will be on the inside of the case.) Work slowly, pulling back just a little of the backing at a time.
Once you’ve secured the sheets to each other and attached the other end to the zipper you’re ready to secure the edges of your case.
Cut down a length of Duck Tape® to the size you want to create your edges. (I used tape cut to 1/4″.)
Secure the sides with the tape. (I also added the tape to the bottom to give the appearance piping.)
Trim the edges of the tape to finish off your case.
Pretty cool pencil case, right? Want in on the fun? You can buy Duck Tape at Walmart in tons of fun colors and designs. Make sure you check out the DIY and craft sections. In my Walmart you can find different products in both places. And don’t forget to follow @DuckBrand on Twitter for tons of crafty inspiration!
