With school approaching quickly, advertisements are everywhere speaking of locker decorations and school supplies. I have had countless problems with store-bought locker pouches. The ones I have had previously are expensive, not made sturdy enough, and lack a strong magnetic hold to the locker. I knew I could make my own locker pouch for less money and create a sturdier model. So I decided to construct a Magnetic Locker Pouch that would work and be better than store-bought pouches! Click here to view an example of a locker pouch that I am trying to imitate, only better.

  • Duct tape
  • Fabric
  • Cardboard
  • X-acto knife
  • Adhesive Magnetic Stripping

Step 1: Structure

Begin by cutting your cardboard into the preferred size with your X-acto knife. Then, duct tape the cardboard to give it a glamorous look.

Awesome. I was just telling my daughter (who will be a Freshman this year) that we could probably make the things she wanted to buy for her locker. This will be our first project !
That's such a great idea. :D
Thank you! :)
