-ruler or -cutting mat ($10 at wal-mart) You'll need any one of these -Scissors -box cutter -x-acto knife -razor blade with handle (If you don't have any of these you can always hand rip the tape) Optional -Parchment paper -Clear plastic -Packaging tape -card for measurement

Step 2: Cutting First Strips

First you'll need to cut 8 pieces of duct tape that are 7.5 inches long For mine the dark blue are going to be the outside of the bill fold and the white are the inside part of the wallet (not the bill fold) the black is the inside of the bill fold (You don't have to follow this just know that 4 are going to be on the outside of the bill fold and 4 are going to be on the inside of the bill fold)

Step 3: Attaching Strips

Now you'll need to attach the pieces to create the wallet. To do that lay one piece with the sticky side facing up (blue one) and lay another on top (black one) with about 1/4 of an inch over hang. Lay the next piece (blue) on the over hang and continue until all the pieces are connected then fold over the over hang on both ends. (After I used the blue ones I switch to the white ones) fold the wallet in half were the second strip ends You will have to trim the wallet to get the ends to be even

Step 4: Sides

Now you'll need a 4in strip cut in half. Now fold the wallet in half and tape one side of the wallet, flip it over and tape the other leaving half an inch over hang then fold the overhang in to the wallet to avoid ripping. Repeat on other side

Yes it comes off really nice, some people use wax paper but the duct tape can get get stuck and rip the paper so parchment paper is the best
Thanks! I'll have to try that.
That's really nice. Great job. Does the duct tape just peel off the parchment paper?
