Hola! Today’s craft is a duct tape pen pouch, made out of a regular snack bag. You can also use this pouch to store other supplies, like scissors or washi tape. I’m not including a collage, because I think the craft is mostly self-explanatory; however, if you are confused about any steps, fell free to ask any questions in the comments section.
Plastic snack bag
1. Cover the bag in duct tape below the zipper.
2. Trim the edges. Don’t cut too close to the bag; it is better to have duct tape hanging evenly off the side than to cut the bag open.

Have a great day 🙂
Happy spring! I’m so excited to share today’s project, mostly because I’m OBSESSED with my new duct tape! I found the pattern on sale at Office Max last weekend. The design is called “Paisley Princess,” and comes in two colors: pink and purple. The tape is actually Scotch brand, not Duck brand, but I haven’t noticed any major differences between the two companies. I have to say, Paisley Princess is probably the prettiest duct tape I’ve owned. EVER. (Can you tell how excited I am?)
Anyway, I like this desk organizer because it’s affordable to create; I used old toilet paper and paper towel rolls. Here’s how I made it:
Duct Tape Desk Organizer
4 toilet paper tubes, cut to different heights
Mod Podge (please don’t call it “Modge Podge,” or I’ll cry)
1. Cover all of the toilet paper tubes in duct tape. Only cover the sides; don’t tape over the top and bottom.
2. Arrange the toilet paper tubes in a square, and wrap a piece of tape around them to hold them in place.
3. Use the Mod Podge and paintbrush to attach the bottom of your desk organizer to the cardstock, and let dry. Use a lot of Mod Podge! As you can see in the picture, I really piled it up around the edges. My organizer needed to dry overnight.
4. Use scissors to trim around the base of your organizer.
That’s it! The container is super sturdy and convenient, and a great place to keep your Duct Tape Rose Pen or Washi Tape Pencils. Just saying.
I hope everyone has a great week! Make sure to follow Duct Tape Doodles on Pinterest, Bloglovin’ and Google Plus! See you next time 🙂
Hello! I realized today that my blogging schedule has been very disorganized. Sometimes I post every other day, yet other times I go months without posting! In order to change that, I made a little duct tape calendar to help organize myself (it most likely won’t help :P.) You’ll need calendar sheets for this, and there are many websites to print them out. I got mine here. I like that the clip on top of the calendar can be used to hang it up. Here’s the collage:
Calendar Sheets (available here)
1. Print out your calendar sheets, preferably vertically. I got mine here.
2. Create a duct tape sheet with the dimensions 9 in x 12 in. If you don’t know how to make a duct tape sheet, check out my tutorial.
3. Unfold your clip.
4. Cover your clip with duct tape. I left a bit of it black because I liked the effect.
5. Layer your duct tape sheet on top of your calendar pages, then clip together at the top.
That’s it! Leave any questions in the comments, and have a fantabulous week.
