Make this easy No-Sew Duct Tape card wallet in no time flat!
It's thin enough to slip in your pocket and made to sport your favorite prints.

Step 1: Gather your Materials

You'll need:
  • Fabric 4 1/2" x 6" (11.5cm x 15cm or so)
  • Duct tape (color of your choice)
  • Stapler + staples
  • Scissors
  • Business or ID/Bank card (for measuring purposes)
  • Tiny magnets (opt) not for use with credit cards
Awesome idea! I'd been trying to think of a way to make a prettier duct tape wallet for ages, this is the perfect solution. I made my own wallet, loosely based on this 'ible, using a different pattern but the same concepts. I really liked the idea of stapling the seams on the ends, especially since you can only tape the inside. <br><br>I added a velcro dot to my wallet to keep it closed. As long as it stays closed the flap stays down and my change doesn't escape!
Be wary about using magnets around your credit cards and other ID badge things. As much as I love that snap too, I prefer that my plastic still works :)
Good point! Since I made this with just carrying my business cards around, I forgot to mention that!
its proven that its nearly impossible to erase a card with a magnet... nice ible
You're right on this. The night after I posted this I was watching mythbusters and they completely hammered this myth. My bad for posting false information, but any commercial magnet you use to hold your wallet together won't wipe your cards. :)
I had a train ticket that we attached to the fridge with magnets and IT WAS WIPED! YIKES!
Yeah, magnets have definitely wiped my transit cards before!
Well then I am clearly not qualified to comment on magnet and wiping cards :) Either way, be wary!
Really? Hmm, cheers -Cheers, Chris
where can you get that instructables card?<br>
I made one of these from a scrap piece of fabric from a tote I made. I used your 4-1/2 X 6 instructions and could not figure out how 2 pockets could fit on it, so I made one packet with a flip over top and secured with velcro dots!
I am confused by step 6 - am I just covering the staples? or am I folding over and taping?
You can actually do either!
the awesome fabric is an awesome touch :P
This step is very unclear! I can follow every other step of this project, but I am having a really hard time with this one.
what marked lines are you talking about?
<p>I'm not quite sure what my problem was, but the fabric dimensions seem to be several inches too short. Any suggestions?</p>
Try creating your own dimension by wrapping fabric or paper around your business cards to get the right size for your needs.<br />
&nbsp;That makes perfect sense. Thanks.
It was a little confusing when I first read this, but after a few minutes, I figured it out. It was pretty easy, and it ended up beautiful. And so small! xD Very nice. <br />
woaa thats well good,neat design -sharlston
This doesn't make any sense
This.. Its so good. If there is a god up there, he uses one of these. Making one asap. Its soo good! -(drools), Chris
