Step 1: Required materials

Picture of Required materials
1) Favorite color roll of duct tape.
2) Quality scissors.
3) Ruler.
4) Knife or equivalent.
5) Packaging tape.
6) paper (optional)

Step 2: Getting started

Picture of Getting started
The first step is to make the body of the wallet (the money pouch).

1) Cut several strips of tape to the length of 10.5". The idea is to make a sheet of tape. In the first picture, it shows that two layers of tape over lap approx.. half way. Try to line up the edges as best as possible.

2) Fold over the tape with the glue side up (Pic. 2). Remember these first 2 steps, you'll be using them all through out the project.

3) Keep flipping the growing sheet over and apply strips of tape until you have a sheet that is exactly 8.5" long. Fold over the last edge like you did in #2.

4) Using your straight edge, scored the side of the sheet (keep as close to the edge as you can.

5) measure the other edge and score a line that is 10 & 1/16" wide. Cut using your scissors.

Step 3: Finishing money pouch

1) Take the finished sheet of tape and fold it in half.

2) Using two strips of tape (4.25" long), tape the edges closed making the pouch.

3) When done, It should look like picture 3. Set it aside (Keep flat).

I FINALLAY FINISHED after 4 hours.....I love you for this instruction, not hard at all and my wallet came out awesome. I had to use scotch tape for the id however (didn't have any packaging tape) ^_^

how much duct tape would you say you ended up using?

If I recall correctly it takes approximately 20-25 yards of tape to make this wallet.

You could use a plastic sandwich bag.
Put your ID card in the sandwich bag to the bottom corner of one side, then trace it with some extra space(For the tape to hold it).
Now, cut inside the lines you drew, and use that instead :)

sure but then that defeats the prupose of making a wallet out of tape ;)
I mean for the little window pocket thing.
Oh, oh I see XD

I LOVE these instructions so much - I've made two wallets so far, and edited the procedures a little bit on the second one to accommodate two colors. Can't wait to make even more once I get my hands on some more designer tape :D thanks so much for this awesome design!!!

I made one, I ended up wasting one entire role because my two card pockets probably took up half of my roll. I ended up not having enough right when I needed one more strip of tape to tape on the ID/Coin Pouch. How much tape did you use?

It depends on what size rolls of tape you're using. I always had the large (like 100 yard length) rolls. If I recall correctly, it only takes about 20-25 yards of tape... lol it's been a while.

is so cool.! I'm planning to make
one. And, the only thing missing then, is a Lanyard and,
little bit of customization for a perfect transformation!. Both goes
perfectly and cool together. I made it a habit of collecting them. They're an
added feature that expresses character, uniqueness, flexibility and
excellency for the one's wearing it that will get you noticed. So, visit here
for more --> Two thumbs up ;)!

This step is really confusing to me. I've done fine so far, but this just has me really confused. Especially steps 8 to 11. Also, I replaced packaging tape with a clear photo protecting sheet. This could be adding to my confusion, but I just don't know what's what.
yea this step also confused me... i just did what I thought was right... made it look like the picture. It's essentially this, cut a long piece of tape and put it on one side of the "inner", non-window portion and leave the sticky side hanging off the side. Then just tape seal the other two sides. The piece that's hanging off will go onto the coin portion for the next step.

I don't get this part. I really want this wallet. Can you post a video or sometning to help me, because I am confused?
Lets hope I have enough for this whole project.
Wow this is awsome! I really like the clear wallet, in fact I think I will make one now.

I really don't understand what you did here so I went ahead and completed the wallet by myself. Try explaining a little better in the future.

I'm just wondering... what's the point of that flap on the coin pouch?
Doganie3 years ago
I love this instructable, I think this might be the first one I have ever actually used!

So I made a regular duct tape one, but couldn't do the coin pouch because I ran out of tape :(

So I made another one! This one completely out of packaging tape :D I feel like it's kind of counter-productive to have a clear wallet, but I don't really care, it looks cool.

Sick wallet, and wat type of duct tape do u use
@cullen: How do you make the bi-fold? what is different? i dont really need the card places on both sides, and i wouldnt mind it being smaller ^^ what should the dimensions be of the first sheet and did you need to make the ID pocket or the card holder smaller?
Sorry for the late reply, but the beginning sheet is 6.75 inches in width and 8 inches in length, I think. The ID holder is not different but you can't add change pouch. The ID holder is the right height but the card holders you can only hold 2 cards instead of 3. But the overall design is the same just less of it.
I was doing pretty good until step 4 (#12-16) it is sooooo confusing. i have no idea how it measured 4.25 at the end????????

i finally posted a video for step 4.
CODO69 (author)  thinkle6 years ago
I'm not really sure how else I can clarify the step for you. I noted that the yellow and gray that you mentioned (the ones i think your talking about) were an old credit card and a piece of paper covering up the numbers on it. I used them to make sure the tape that was folded back was folded properly. Let me know if that helps at all... or not.
