Easy Duct Tape Pouches Hip2Save

Looking for an easy back to school craft to do with the kiddos? Try making these simple pencil pouches with duct tape and Ziploc bags that are super handy for small school supplies! Duct tape is such a fun craft material especially now that it comes in so many creative patterns and colors.

Measure about two inches from the bottom of bag and draw a line across the bag with a Sharpie. Using the line as a guide, cut your bag with scissors. Start from the top and cover bag with a strip of tape a little longer than bag and fold over ends. Overlap the next piece of tape about 1/8 of an inch. The 3rd strip you can fold over the bottom of the bag, and finish with two more strips up the back of bag. You can stop here or embellish with another color and or stickers to personalize.

I decided to use a thin red electrical tape on the sides of this bag and created a little clear side pouch for a student I.D or name card. To do this, just cut out a credit card sized piece of plastic from another plastic bag. I folded a piece of tape around one edge of the plastic and then taped down the sides and bottom to the side of the pouch.

I love that these Pencil Pouches take just a few minutes to create and turn out so cute! These pouches can also be used to keep crayons or cosmetics in your purse and are great to stash your cell phone and belongings in at the beach or lake.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
