All of the duct tape wallets I've seen so far look like they belong in the pockets of overalls or inside a tool box. This one is a lot more feminine. It won't really fit in a pants pocket but it is a great sturdy everyday wallet with room for eight cards and it is big enough that you could carry it separately as a clutch.

What you will need:
-lots of duct tape
-scissors
-nail polish remover and toilet paper to clean the gunk off the scissors
-a pen/marker
-a straight edge

Step 1: Make the base

At the base of this wallet are two sheets of duct tape. I've found that the easiest way to make one of these sheets is to start with a piece of loose leaf and cover that in duct tape on both sides. that way you can get nice straight lines. It also adds a bit more stability.

-10"x9.5"
       This one is to be folded into three sections. The first is with the cards, the second  is the pocket for the money, and the third it the flap with the velcro. You can see these on the finished wallet. Once you make it, fold it to the appropriate proportions. the two larger sections should be about 4" long.
-4" x 9.5"
        This one is taped in the middle and is part of the pocket for the money.

I love this design! I just wish U could do a video tutorial.
At first, I got so confused. Then I actually read all of it and BOOM! It's done! I also added a coin pouch ;)

This tutorial confused me soo much! But after sitting and staring at some of the pieces I figured it out, and even though the cash slot is a bit messy this is my first one and I'll make a few more and see what I need to do to make it better. Thanks for the tutorial and extra ideas!!

I'll have to try this once I re-stock my duct tape :P
it looks cool
This is the second wallet I created (the first was a gift and I followed the directions more closely) this one I went on sole memory of this tutorial. It didn't turn so bad I just messed up the money pocket and I made only 6 card slots.

I don't understand all of these directions. Can someone make a tutorial video on making one so I can see how it is made? I think this is so cute and want to make one
I ended up making my own!

omg i love yours!!! i got clueless when it came to the tutorial.. any pointers? lol i seriously want yours
I didn't understand the tutorial AT ALL so I looked at the pictures and kind of created and made up my own stuff. I guessed at the sizes and it turned out a bit big but my niece still loves it (birthday present from me) so try to copy the pictures in the tutorial I suppose. I wish someone made a video on how to create this. I just don't have the capability to make one otherwise I would! The only thing that I totally changed was that I made an ID slot and you can find how to make one here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiMAXsZImv8&list=PLD8686CA3E45ECA0F&index=1&feature=plpp_video I also used this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tS_Zl9SrA8&list=PLD8686CA3E45ECA0F&index=2&feature=plpp_video to create the credit card holders. I hope that helps!

Awesome! I messed up/altered this a little bit, but it still turned out okay. I'll probably make an improved one at some point. Thanks for the Instructable!

i made a simple one not much duct tape is needed and its simple lol
how much would you sell these for?
I sold one to my friend for $10. She seemed okay with that. If it was to a stranger, I might have charged a little more.

Thought I would share pictures of the wallet I just made using this as a guideline. There are a couple things that I changed and did my own thing on, but it was all based around yours :)

If you wanted to do an id slot how would you and where would you put it?
I couldnt really understand these instructions so I took the main picture and made my own instead. With one row of 5 cards going down length wise on the side that doesnt hold the money. Then the side that is the outside where the money goes I put a clear plastic id slot there in the oposit direction from the rest of the cards.. Hope this helps.
could you please upload a video? i can't seem to find it. thank you

how big is the strip for the money pocket
jerseygirl77 (author)  redlizard54 years ago
the same width as your main base and as for height it should be about a centimeter shorter than you want the wallet itself to be. Room to fold the top down but big enough that it covers the money.

did u cut the paper because papers not 10 by 9.5 its 10.5 by 8
jerseygirl77 (author)  redlizard54 years ago
I think the paper I used was from a notebook so it might have had non-standard dimensions but either way you can cut it down once you cut it.

how much duct tape does it use total?
jerseygirl77 (author)  carpfluff4 years ago
If you do it all in one color it works out to a little more than half of a standard "duck tape" roll.
cool
