Fun Crafts for Kids Friday! Locker Pocket
Found this cool back-to-school craft on familyfun.com :)
These simple magnetic foam envelopes are great for storing assorted school supplies and CDs.
Craft scissors or pinking shears
Small craft foam flowers and geometric shapes (sold by the package in many craft stores)
Brass paper fastener
2 strong magnets
Cut a 9-inch square from the craft foam, using craft scissors or pinking shears to create a decorative edge.
Place the square on a flat surface and fold 2 opposite corners to the center, as shown. Fold up the lower corner so the edges slightly overlap the side flaps. While pinching the 3 folded flaps together with one hand, secure them from the inside of the pocket with packing tape.
Apply glue between the overlapped edges and place a heavy book on top of the envelope to keep them flat while they're drying.
When the glue is dry, attach decorative foam shapes to the front of the envelope with a brass fastener.
Glue the magnets to the back of the envelope, one at the top and one at the bottom, and let the glue dry completely before packing the pouch.
