So I know there are already a bunch of these but here is my easy duct tape wallet.  I made this for my teen Summer Reading Program at my library. 

You will need
     Duck tape, any colors (I'm using three different colors to show the parts easier)
     Scissors
     Gift card or credit card to help measure
     Ruler

Step 1: Create a piece of duct tape fabric

Cut 4 pieces of tape, about 10" long, and lay them on the work surface, sticky side up. Connect them by overlapping the top edge of one to the bottom edge of the next.  Repeat with remaining two pieces of tape.  Now you have a sticky square.

Step 2: Create a piece of duct tape fabric

Cut another piece, the same length, and press it sticky side to sticky side, against the bottom strip of tape. Continue with 3 more strips until you have a solid sheet made of tape. Use scissors to trim the ends.

Step 3: Create a piece of duct tape fabric

To create a smooth top and bottom edge cut another strip of tape the a little bit longer than your wallet.  Tear it in half length wise.  Place the half strip so that one half of it is under your wallet and fold the tape over.  Use the other half strip for the bottom edge.

Step 4: Create the credit card slots

Cut a long strip of tape, about 18 inches long, and place it, sticky side up, on the work surface.  Cut another piece, the same length as the first, and tape it, sticky side down, onto the other piece (sticky to sticky).

Cut another 18" length and tear it in half length wise. Use half to create a smooth top seam on your long strip of tape the same way you did with your wallet.  Use the second half strip to do the other side. Trim the ends.

Step 5: Create the credit card slots

Using a credit card or gift card (I used my library card) as a measuring guide, cut the length of tape into "credit card pockets", leaving about 1/4" on each side of the card.  Set the card aside and use the first one that you cut to use as a guide and cut three more, for a total of four.
I love it!!! I'm a 10 yr old and I love making duct tape items!!!! I make cd cases I just put duck tape on clear colored cd cases and I make peatal braclets and purses I also make something like this but it has to big pockets and is not enterly ducktape. I'm a figure skater and I use them as sticker holders .

Fairly easy to follow. I Initially had a smidge of confusion when it came to folding in half long ways, while still leaving a bit of the 'back flap' up higher... Though the picture did help. Mine turned out looking really nice... but it is HUGE! I am not good at eyeballing lengths, so my pockets are kinda too deep/wide for a card... Unless I put it vertical.
