(Pardon my paint stained cutting mat!)

Make sure that the zipper is closed, and trim the freezer bag to the desired size. Don’t worry about any open seams – you’ll seal those up again later.

Making a Zippered Duck Tape Puch - Step 1Cut a strip of Duck Tape that is slightly wider than your pouch, and apply the strip to the top edge of the freezer bag (along the zipper edge). Continue to apply strips of tape until the entire freezer bag is covered.

Making a Zippered Duck Tape Puch - Step 2Flip the bag over and repeat the process.
