Introduction: Fold-a-Wallet

An elegantly simple, functional (2 compartments, credit card securing flap) and surprisingly durable wallet.

You need only 2 items - A4 sized sheet of EVA foam and glue (PVA or similar). No cutting required.

Step 1: Fold #1

Fold along a line about 1/4 from the top

(I am using a sheet with pre-printed design on one side, plain on the other)

Step 2: Crease

Fold it in half to create the midline crease

Step 3: Fold #2

Bring in the lower corners so that they almost touch the midline just above the bottom margin

Step 4: Fold #3

fold about one third from the bottom

Step 5: Glue It

spread some glue inside - yellow areas shown in diagrams - second pic shows areas covered by the glue if project is opened up

Allow glue to dry

Step 6: Done!

Enjoy this Do-able and Durable wallet!

    Great idea. Sometimes I receive packages with this type material used for packing. This is a nice project to reuse this material. Thank you for sharing.

    Great idea! I'll have to look for this foam!
