This instructable is on how to make a duct tape playing card case because when you mistreat the card cases they deteriorate.

Step 1: Tools

The tools you need for this project are
1. Cards
2. Duct tape
3. Scissors
4. Magnets
<p>Made one big enough for my 100 deck of sleeved MTG cards! Next time I'm going to try to use cardboard to make the box stiffen. Shiny! </p>
An excellent effort....I'm going to make this! You might consider doing the first step(s) with (maybe) two different colors of duct tape....so it'd be easier to tell the sections apart.
I tried it and it looked preatty good
I ended up just using velcro which worked a lot better
Thanks for the velcro tip. I constructed (see:https://www.instructables.com/id/Duct-Tape-Camera-Bag) a leash but this is hard to operate (esp. in the dark).<br><br>
It's cool but would have been better if you gave measurements instead of just saying to make it these proportions to a deck of cards.<br />
and you dont need measurements, you are wrapping it around the box
not all cards are the same thickness and size, and maybe some people would want to make this for their trading cards which are not the size of a standard playing card and come in different dimensions as well.&nbsp; note i do not play trading card games any more it was just an example.<br />
This was a pretty cool project altho i couldn't find any good enough magnets so i just made it without them.
you should use 9 volt snaps to secure it, like i did in my duct tape wallet instructable. <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/EUT8DXIQUDERIE27EZ/?ALLSTEPS">https://www.instructables.com/id/EUT8DXIQUDERIE27EZ/?ALLSTEPS</a><br/><br/>
I went for magnets myself, the 9V clips require pressure that might damage your cards. Magnets require no pressure at all and will hold on enough (if you have decent magnets, I got mine out of magnetix that I never use anymore anyway)<br /> <br /> Also, I made another with a DVD box and duct tape. It'll protect my cards better when I'm not careful with the case.&nbsp;<br />
This was a spur of the moment type thing. I didn't have time to find a nine volt.
<em><strong><sub><strike><sup></sup>pretty sweet i would never have thought of doing that, MacGyver would be SO proud.:)<em><strong><sub><strike><sup></sup></strike></sub></strong></em></strike></sub></strong></em><br/>
someone should make a macgyver guild.&nbsp; I like to watch mac on fancast.com and have the macgyver hand book pdf (free download on scribd.com) And im 16!!!<br />
Great job but it would be cooler with colored tape
camo!!!!<br />
I don't get the last step. You have magnets in the case and the flap. Why do you need to use tape to secure it? Also, love the "Rrrrroll up the Rrrrrim to win" reference!
The magnets were not strong enough through the tape to hold it closed. I was afraid of the case opening and the cards flying out.
Good to know. I bet you could get some stronger magnets at Radio Shack. I remember they used to sell them.
still do<br />
try mutilating a hard drive and using the magnets in that. you'll be able to close it AND hang it on your fridge.
use the magnets out of magnetix sticks just cut the ends
i bet if you upscale it you can make a backpack ill try it<br />
woaa thats well good,neat design -sharlston
Never try this with magnets that aren't flat, and do not cover up their surface a lot, or they won't stick to each other. You could possibly make another slot on the side for poker chips...
Haha... That's awesome. I love playing cards and my freinds and i have sets... i think ill try to make this and a set case..
hmmm...i play blackjack alot this is cool
Im a toatal card shark and I have lots of colored duct tape from my duct tape wallets that i sell so i think ill make one of these. also Im going to florida this summer and my grandma lives there so im going to make one with 2 pouches cuz she plays bridge
dude. the POINT of duct tape wallets was that you did NOT have to buy them.
yeah, but people are stupid and they'll buy them. i was once paid to flatten someone's duct tape. i soaked it and then put it between two heave surfaces. the cardboard became malleable and folded into shape ;)
all i did was cover a regular box with duct tape
