Picture of Casino Wallet
This is a Trifold Wallet made out of Playing cards. It has a change pocket and two credit card pockets. Its sleek design helps it fit into pockets easily.This design is easily modified for your needs. I made this one as a wallet for carrying high money bills with low quantity (10 twenty dollar bills instead of 100 one dollar bills) Expect to spend 15-20 minutes on this rewarding project.

Step 2: Begin Taping Cards

Begin taping as shown in the picture. add Three cards ( more if you have large paper money, then it will have more folds than 3.) then tape over the other side. Make sure there are no uncovered spots. Make two of these one of the side should be slightly bigger so it fits and folds nice. If you want make them the same size this takes more work than than the other way, you have to wear it in alot but it makes a more rewarding wallet.

Step 3: Make wallet main compartment

Remember those two card strips you made before? well, get them out and tape the bottom on both sides so the money doesn't stick t the wallet. Now tape the sides up so you have a wallet main compartment. if necessary now you should fold back and forth to break it in.

Step 4: Adding change and credit card pockets

To add change pockets cut a card to fit sideways across the left panel cover the piece in tape and Tape on to the wallet as shown, then cut another card similarly and cover both pieces in tape and tape on to make credit card pockets as shown in picture 2. When you tape these pieces on make sure they are securely held there. The Middle panel is yours to customize.

Great wallet I have like 12 wallets made off of instructables and this one is pretty good! I think maybe this one is #4

Ultimate wallet is #1.
But I love duct tape.

 I've done this for years now!  People love it wherever I go :)  It's really flat and is hardly noticed in your pocket.

The problem with the card wallet which you solved is the front half pockets, nice!

When I made them I had the good fortune of having access to a nice laminator where I used to work, so I would place 6 cards per 'sheet' of laminate 3 facing up, 3 down, and with spaces for folding.  Trim them down, tape up the sides to your desired liking.  Little more durable that way!

Theres no since in photoshoping out the number since its a Simon mall gift card which is probably empty.

this is very cool. my son has gotten several wallets as gifts, but doesn't like them - thinks they're too thick. this may be his perfect stocking stuffer for Christmas. Thanks!
i made one of these before i saw this but there are a couple of things that i did differently that i think made mine better A. no change or credit card slots just put your change in your pocket and put the credit cards in with the bills they hold better and a similar wallet is always better. b. leave spaces in between the cards they fold better and seeing the money through looks cool and C. rather then folding it to break it in great techniques are swimming with it in your pocket a few times or put it through the wash once or twice i did bout and the wallet feels great.

Thsi was the first one, and in the new ones I leave maybe 3mm space. IDK about the washing it thing though.
it softens the whole thing not only the folds

Am I really the first one to catch this quote?
"I made this one as a wallet for carrying high money bills with low quantity (10 twenty dollar bills instead of 100 one dollar bills)"
100 one dollar bills= 100$
10 twenty dollar bills= 200$

...?
lol nice Instructable though
vanpaun (author)  The Porsche Fan6 years ago
yeah, 10x20=200. But, anyway, my point exactly, less bills, more money.
