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 🙂
I’ve made a couple kindle cases already, and both posts are consistently popular on Duct Tape Doodles. Today, I decided to create an updated case, which contains a felt lining. The lining offers more protection than duct tape on its own, and also lets the kindle slide in and out more smoothly. Still, only rely on this case for minor falls and scratches. Though I made this case for my kindle fire (first generation), the measurements can be adjusted to fit e-readers of various sizes. Here’s the tutorial (Sorry about the gloomy editing; it’s raining outside.)
1. Cut the felt to the correct size. Mine was 5.5″ by 16,” and I found these dimensions by adding an half inch to the height of my kindle and multiplying by two, and also adding an inch to the width. Depending on the thickness of your kindle, you may need to add more or less.
2. Cover the non-fuzzy side of your felt in duct tape. Trim the ends.
3. Fold the felt in half vertically (also known as the “hamburger” way).
4. Cut two more strips of tape, and fold them over the left and right edges of the case. You’ll need to fold the sides of the case over along with the strips, to prevent any stickiness inside the pouch.
The process is tricky to explain, but I promise the kindle holder is easy to create! Make sure to comment any questions, and I’ll definitely help you out :).

Howdy! I’m excited to show you my latest duct tape craft, a duct tape iPad case! This case is for the iPad 2 and above. You can also add handles to make a basic purse, which I’ll demonstrate in a future tutorial. Just a quick note: this project requires A LOT of tape, so if you don’t have much to spare, I wouldn’t recommend making this.
2 colors of duct tape
1. Create two duct tape sheets with the dimensions of 8.25 in by 10.25 in. If you don’t know how to make duct tape sheets, click here for a tutorial.
2. Tape the sheets together on the sides and bottom (obviously not the top).
3. Turn the case inside out.
4. Repeat step 2.
5. And you’re done! Make sure you’ve done step 3, as this will prevent the iPad from sticking to the case.
*THIS CASE IS FOR DECORATION ONLY AND WILL NOT PROTECT YOUR IPAD FROM FALLS*
That’s all for now! I’ll show you how to add handles to make a purse soon. Remember to follow (on WordPress or Bloglovin’), share, like, and comment!
