Hit the halls in style this school year when you create these cute and easy pencil pouches! Before school starts, get together with your friends and host a fun crafting party. Everyone can bring their own special style to this project. All you need to do is gather up a few pretty papers and some basic crafting supplies. Create a sealable pouch by recycling an ordinary sandwich bag. Once you're done, stash all your basic office supplies in them from pencils and pens to scissors and glue.
What You'll Need:
- Patterned paper
- Double-sided tape
- Packing tape
- Resealable plastic bag
Step One: Cut patterned paper in strips that fit the size of the plastic bag. If you don't have any fancy paper handy, recycle an old calendar or use wrapping paper.
Step Four: Create a glossy finish by applying packing tape over the paper.
Step Five (Optional): Accessorize with tape and stickers and you're done! You can also attach magnets to the back of the pouches and hang them inside your locker.
I'm starting high school this year and I know that these pencil pouches will come in handy. I'm making these ahead of time because once school starts, I know I'll be busy.

What a great idea! You could even leave a 'window' in part of the side to be able to see what you've got stored in there. I think I'll try this with a larger bag and use it to store my travelling needlework projects.ReplyDelete
Good luck in school!
