This craft is to make a pencil case out of a sheet of craft foam and duct tape. It is very quick and easy to do, and it is not messy. It does take some skill to put the duct tape in the right places.

We used colored duct tape from Michael’s to make it pretty. You start by folding up the bottom so that it is roughly folded in thirds. You then duct tape the sides to hold it in place.

The top folds down, and you can fasten it either with Velcro, or ribbon duct taped on. You now have a pocket to carry items around it. You can decorate it further by gluing pretty things on and drawing on it.
