Because you could use a clear wallet, you know you could. I'm slightly obsessed with transparent things like bags, purses and shoes. Why wouldn't I want a clear wallet? OK, follow the step below and you can have a clear wallet as well.

Step 1: Get your materials

The things you will need:
- One roll of clear packaging tape ( the thick kind)
- One pair of scissors
- a straight blade razor ( or x-acto knife)
I forgot to put the blade in the shot but you'll see it later
did this one on my own. didn't think of using the exacto knife for doing that... but good work. how did you keep it so fingerprint-free? I was having issues with that. I'll post pics of mine later... good job, overall. A really, really tough project to do well and make it look good. I think most of my issues came with putting the tape on perfectly the first time, because if one doesn't it leaves some nasty adhesive marks on the other tape.
To keep the finger prints off, I was careful to touch only the edges of the tape. This tut wasn't my first go at the wallet. My first version had all kinds of air bubbles and misaligned taped edges. Go slow and if you do mess it up, just give that one away to someone and make yourself another one. BTW, I still have this tape wallet in my purse and it looks almost just as new now as it does in these pictures 3 Years Later. A testament to good quality tape.
nice. I guess that I should have done that. I didn't have enough tape to make another though... and mine is a bit more worn after much less time. maybe it's because I put it in my pocket instead of a purse.
hahahahhahahahah slightly obsessed with transparent things hahahha man ima use dat as an excuse hahah omg man btw nice though
its all right i had troubles figuaring it out
Im gonna go try this right now if I have clear tape hehehehehhahahahahohohohohohohhiiihihihihihihihihihihihihih
Very cool, I'd like to try that :)
How about if a person would use plastic, like the leftover laminating plastic from something you got laminated at copy store? or use two laminating sheets instead of tape (or too brittle). Just ideas - you try, i'm busy but i like this clear wallet very much as it uses things we have on hand in a creative way, and it is clear! (clearly good! ha ha)
I didn't think of that but it I'm sure that kinda material would work well. I would test it out if I had some laminate sheets but I just have the tape used here. I'll try it though if I get some of that stuff.
