Step 1: The beginning

Start by getting an A4 piece of paper (or 8.5 x 11 for you US people) and get something the shape of a credit card.

Fold the bottom part of the paper about an inch so it covers about 1/3 of the credit card.

Step 2: The folding

Turn the paper over with the fold facing the table. put the credit card on the opposite side of the last fold. Fold the paper so that the card is hidden.

Turn the paper over and line up the first fold with the bottom of the paper, then fold the opposite part of the paper (the side that hasnt been folded yet) into the others, so you can see 3 'steps'.

Step 3: The Cutting

Cut each of the folds from the edge by about 1.5cm.

Fold all but the bottom into the pocket that has been made on the side of the wallet.

Then fold the last piece of paper so it is with the others. Repeat on both sides.

Step 4: The final fold

Finally fold the wallet in half. It should now be able to hold about 4 cards and a few notes.

Enjoy
I agree with both comments on top; it was kind of hard to keep track with what you were doing, plus the money pocket does end up being facing the bottom of the wallet, so it's not useful.

thats exactly what i do with this wallet. i keep my credit cards, bank cards, and higher bills in it, and bring it WITH my other wallet, with R$10-20 (about 5-10 US$) so when anything happens, i say i just have the money for the lunch and bus and documents. usually robbers (is this the proper word?) buy it and walk away! seriously.

I just love this wallet... also, i use a half card coverage (a little less actually, but i exagerated on this one) on first folding.... it makes the wallet slimmer and prettier, and a V shaped folding on the inside for the cards. oh, and with an A4 paper, print a 6,5cm height and up to 9cm width picture with 10,5cm to left spacement (used PS - print with preview) and 6,5cm to top if u want to customize yours like i did. :)
