Picture of Awesome wallet made out of playing cards
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

Picture of Materials
- 6 or more playing cards (depending on how many pockets or extras you want)

- LOTS of clear tape

Step 2: Step 1

Picture of 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)

I use to make my own, but bought a cheap Vanotticks wallet that I can slip cards in and out of really easy. I don't have to ruin a deck and I can replace with pokemon, baseball, basketball or other cards. Check it out www.vanotticks.com

what happens if it gets wet?
cover it ALL in tape.
um... your king is backwards?!?!?! on the last pic
ya its because i used the camera on my computer to take the pictures so it reversed everything
haha oh ok I thought it was like a lefty deck or something
haha i dont think they make those
they do ive seen them
Yup. www.leftydeck.com
oh thats cool, but i dont get what would be different about them since their all double-sided and stuff
well im left handed and i fan my cards the other way than your supposed to. so i cant see the value/suit, its behind the other card. and them being double sided doesnt make a difference if you turn them around the are still the same. ask somebody who is left handed to fan a deck, or look it up on youtube. you should be able to find something.
ah i see. well my cards arent backwards it's just a reversed picture, but now im interested in the lefty deck. :)
here i found one for you. but this deck is a little different than what I've seen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkKl9ATSoKo
