After studying all the versions of those who already posted their I ended up making my own out of a document envelope.
So now I want to give back and share it with you.
I can already hear you saying: "Oh no... not another paper wallet, does the world really needs one more?" . Well... may be not, but this one has some differences with others that you might like:
- First it's a "traveler version" : it has two main notes pockets to store your money . You could use that in case you are traveling and need to keep different currencies like dollars and/or euros, pesos, crowns... you name it. Otherwise you might keep small notes (1, 5, 10 dollar bills) and big notes (20, 50...).
- One of the money pockets has an extra security feature to prevent notes slipping out of the wallet (using the closing lip of the envelope)
- Other than that it has 6 more pockets for subway tickets, credit cards, business cards, etc...
- Last it has one different not common among other paper wallets. In this wallet every 2 layers of paper/tyvek form a pocket you can access and use, while sometimes paper wallets have two layers of paper one over the other that are not usable and end up only adding to the thickness of the wallet but providing no other feature. This version might result in being 1/4 less thick compared to others
Step 1: Materials and Tools
one paper or tyvek document envelope, A4 size
Step 2: Step 1
You'll have to cut a millimeter or less of the side of the envelope (the folded part) going from one mid-point to the other passing by the closed side (bottom of the envelope. In the picture the parts you'll have to cut away are marked in pink.
You'll end with the bottom half of the envelope looking like two separate sheets.
