What Is Tyvek Paper?

Made of high-density polyethylene fibers A synthetic smart material.

  • Durable.
  • Elastic
  • long-lasting
  • Waterproof
  • Able to draw/print on it
  • Cost-effective than fabrics

And did I mention that everything we are using are eco-friendly material !

Step 1:

Cut Out Tyvek Paper 24 cm by 25 cm

Step 2:

There are different types of Tyvek, it is produced in “hard” and “soft” structure types.

The ones used in this tutorials are the "soft” ones. These are lightly bonded products with an embossed pattern, providing a softer fabric-like flexible substrate with tear resistance.

DO TAKE NOTE that there are 2 sides to the Tyvek Paper!


  • Keep the 24cm side on top 25cm on the sides
  • Duct tape Horizontally on the rough side (waxed side)
  • You would want to try to get rid of all "air bubbles" and get it as smooth as possible =)

After taping the rough side, flip over and cut off the excess

Customise your Tyvek Paper on the smooth side(embossed)

  • You can choose to use oil based makers or stamps
  • Sewing can also be done

Step 4:

  • After customising, flip back to the duct taped side
  • Measure 0.5cm from the top and bottom. Draw a line across with a pen

Step 5:

  • Measure 1cm from both sides.
  • Draw a line across with a pen

Step 6:

  • Take a zipper, FLIP on to the back side
  • Place the zipper, on the bottom part of be the square piece,hold it together and flip over

Step 7:

  • Stapler along the lines… (do not need to stapler very close to each other)
  • Once done, flip over

Step 8:

  • Remember OPEN the zipper before proceeding to stapler the other side

Step 9:

  • Fold the zipper to the side and smooth down

Step 10:

  • Press zipper down, stapler the left side first,
  • Do the same for the right side

Step 11:

  • Measure and cut the tape by the length of the pouch,
  • Cut across horizontally half (now you have 2 thin pieces)

Step 12:

  • Press down zipper, cover up the staplers
  • DO NOT tape it too close to the zipper ( you may face difficulties zipping and un-zipping it later)

Step 13:

  • Measure tape with the height of the pouch, cut 2 pieces of the same length
  • You do no need to half it this time, you will need the full piece of tape for both

Step 14:

  • Use 1/3 of the full tape, on the front side (where you have the zipper,)
  • Tape just enough to cover the staplers.

Step 15:

  • Flip it over, and fold along the lines and stick it down.
  • Do the same for the other side

Step 16:

  • When done, open up and flip it inside out
  • Edges maybe a little hard to push out, you can use a pen to assist you.
  • And TADA!~ you have your Tyvek paper, no sew zipper pouch!
