Duct tape wallets are so old. This is a really cool wallet that looks awesome and is much smaller than most store-bought wallets. It's also super easy to make.
Step 1: Materials
- 6 or more playing cards (depending on how many pockets or extras you want)
- LOTS of clear tape
Step 2: Step 1
First, take 3 cards and turn them face up. Space them in a row about 1/4 in apart. Use tape to attach them together. Make sure they stay together well! Then repeat with another 3 cards.
Step 3: Step 2
Next, aline the two rows of cards into a 3 X 2 row. Tape the two rows together. Use a lot of tape if you have too. (I did)
Step 4: Step 3
Now, flip the whole thing over so that the cards are face down. Tape over any sticky parts (sticky part to sticky part).
Step 5: Step 4
Now, flip it back over to the front. Fold the rows towards each other so that the faces are on the outside. Tape the short sides.
Step 6: Step 5
If you only want a single-pocket large wallet, you're done! Put some cash in, fold it up, and put it in your pocket!
BUT if you want another pocket and a cool fastener, go on to step 6!
Step 7: Step 6
Now, in my card wallet I have a small pocket for my I.D. This pocket can also be used for credit cards, gift cards, pictures, or change. (you can also make multiple pockets if you want).
Take another card and cut about 40% of it off from the top. Keep the larger part.
Step 8: Step 7
Take the piece of the card, and tape the bottom and sides of it to the inside of one of the other cards in your wallet. (Do not tape the top)
Step 9: Step 8
Although the wallet may not stay folded very well, there is an easy and cool-looking way to fix it.
First, take another card and cut a strip (about 1 inch wide) across the short side of the card. Take this strip and tape HALF OF IT to the end of the MIDDLE CARD on the BACK SIDE of the wallet (leave the other half without tape)
