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

fold about one third from the bottom

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.
