DIY Pencil Pouches

Pencil pouches don't always hold up well throughout the year in student binders, but here is an option that is inexpensive if you need to replace often.

Items to Gather:

  • Name Brand Baggies (the slide lock ones will work the best for making sure they are sealed all the way)
  • Patterned Duct Tape
  • 3-Hole Punch
  • Optional:  Labels or Foam Sticky Letters


Step 1
: Use duct tape to place along the bottom of the baggie on both sides.

Step 2:
 Three-hole punch the baggie through the tape.

Step 3: Insert into the binder!

Other Tips/Suggestions:

You can also place student name labels or foam sticky letters on the front in case of a lost binder or baggie as an option.  One last idea is to have students choose their own favorite tape from several you provide.  It might make the buy-in even stronger.  :)  These are perfect for lightweight items such as flashcards or crayons.

Have fun creating!
