In spending a few days with the wallet and playing around with different features from a single sheet of paper, I realized a lot of this comes down to preference. Do you like secure cards? Easy visibility? One-handed access? Lots of storage?
So take what I've made and run with it!
Step 1: Fold Paper
Step 2: Making Marks, Cutting, Folding Tabs
1. Make the marks
2. Cut along the marks you made
3. Tape 7 and 8 together
(you can play around with these folds, as these are the pockets for your cards. Again, I'm just documenting what I did)
With respect to the tabs that you just cut:
a. 1 and 2 should fold up.
b. 5 and 6 should fold up.
c. 7 and 8 should fold down.
Step 3: Folding Together
Likewise for 7 and 8 onto 5 and 6.
Look at the lefthand side and it should match up with the third picture. Take a piece of tape to seal the cash pocket along with the inside-left hand card pocket. Again, you can play around with how you seal the various pockets.
Step 4: Stuff the Wallet
Then the tab is closed.
Then a piece of tape is placed to close it.
The yellow sticky note is an illustration in case you dont know how to fold a piece of tape over so that you can always pick it up (dont you hate it when you lose your place on a roll of packaging tape). The red shaded area of the sticky represents the non-adhesive side to your tape.
Do the same for the right hand outside pocket.
The next picture shows an example of the tape, but for sealing the wallet.
Step 5: You're Done!
Seal (and I really mean closing it with the intent of easily opening in the future)
It's so thin!
Put a todo list on it!
Because you can just use recycled paper, if it gets wet or beat up, just make a new one. In case you want to protect your cards or cash, place a layer of packing tape over those areas.
Thanks for bearing through my first instructable which was made late at night for the next day's assignment =P
