Cute Locker Pockets Tutorial- Makes Useful Locker Decoration
My daughter started middle school this year and she gets her own locker with a large number combination lock and a locker shelf. Of course, she needs a little locker flare to make it all her own, so we came up with this easy DIY locker pocket. If you want to go a step further, you can even coordinate this locker craft with this school supplies craft so that all of her stuff will tie in together with one unified theme. Here is what you will need and how to make your DIY locker pocket.
DIY Locker Pocket Supplies:
- duct tape (I used three different colors for maximum pop but that is optional)
- one manilla folder (makes 1-2 locker pockets)
- magnets (optional)
How To Make A Duct Tape Craft Locker Storage Pocket:
First I cut the manilla folder in half, creating two folders. (You can use a ruler if you are a perfectionist or you can just eyeball it if you are pretty good at that type of thing.)
Next, I used a pen to measure the height I wanted and cut the top off. Then I cut out a semi circle shape from the top part of the first layer of the folder.
Now, open up the flap and line the inside of the pocket with a pretty color duct tape that you want to show through. Then start lining the outside of the pocket with the main color of duct tape you want to see.
Now I used the third duct tape color and cut a strip that was longer than the length of the folder by about two widths of duct tape. I centered this strip with 1/2 inch overlay onto the folder. Then bent it in half and sealed shut to create a border for the locker pocket.
I repeated the above step to end up with both sides of the folder sealed. Then I finished the border on the top and bottom with a 1/2 inch overlay and folding in half to create a nice boarder for the locker pocket.
The duct tape locker storage pocket is all done and can be hung up in a school locker with magnets.
