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!
<p>This is very pretty </p>
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.
cool
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
exremely awsome fabric (you can probably tell that i would like from my picture)
Great! This is cool! i'm gonna make one (or more) of these! thanx for the 'ible! :D
This is the coolest
