Step 4: Card Holders

Hope it helps for all those who were having a little difficulty with my wording below.

1) Measure out 4 strips of tape measuring 3.75" long.

2) As in the money pouch portion, line up the edges and stick the 1st two pieces of tape together approx.. half way (Pic 1)

3) Fold over the tape that is glue side up. (Pic 2)

4) Using your ruler, make the length of the tape sheet exactly 2.75". Apply the 4th piece of tape and fold over the exposed edge. (Pic 3).

5) Repeat this step 2 more times.

6) Repeat steps 1-4 once more, but instead make the length of the 4 tape strips 3.5".

7) Just like with the money pouch, score the edge of the sheets to make a flush edge.

8) Cut along the scored edges.

9) With your ruler, measure the 3 sheets of equal size to 3 3/8", score and cut. The one sheet that was 3.5" long, measure and cut to 3" even.

10) Cut 4 strips of tape measuring 2.75". Place one piece over an end of each tape sheet.

11) Cut 4 more pieces of tape at 2.75" long. (these next 4 pieces will be used to assemble the sheets together.

12) Lay a piece of tape across the bottom of one of the sheets (3 3/8") and fold the tape back so the glue side is facing up. (Pic 5-6) I used an old credit card as a spacer so the tape folds back neatly (the yellow paper over it was to cover up and numbers on the credit cards)

13) Stick the second sheet (3 3/8") on top the first off set by 3/8". (Pic 7)

14) repeat step 13 with 3rd sheet of 3 3/8" and the 4th sheet measuring 3". The 3" sheet will be flush on the bottom edge of the "packet". (Pic 8-13)

15) Cut a piece of tape 2.75" and place it at the bottom edge of the stack and fold it around to the back. (Pic 15-16)

16) If done properly the whole thing will measure 4.25" long (Pic 17)

17) Now to tape the edges closed. Cut 2 strips of tape 4.25". I use thin strips of paper approx. .5" wide and 4.25" long on these 2 pieces of tape (Pic 18). They are offset approx. .5" from the edges. The paper is used to keep any glue from the tape from sticking to your cards.

18) Lay the tape across the front of the "packet" making sure the paper partially overlays the front side. Flip the packet over and it should look like Pic 19. With your knife, make a slice at the thickest part of the packet. The slice will help keep the tape from wrinkling when you fold it over.

19) Fold the tape over keeping it as snug as possible (try not to wrinkle the tape) And repeat on other side with 2nd piece of tape. When done, Your card holder should look like Pic 20-21.

20) Flip the packet over and cut through the tape on the front side so each individual pocket can open fully (Pic 22).

21) Repeat steps 1-19 to make a second pouch. Set 2 pouches aside. (Pic 23)
<p>Good Tip .. Stop by FedEx and grab a large Tyvek mail bag to use instead of standard paper.</p><p>Or just grab an amazing printed wallet at <a href="http://www.thewalart.com/" rel="nofollow">www.thewalart.com</a></p>
I made it out of ponies! It somehow accomodates all of my stuff. And is also adorable.
<p>i used a pespi bottle. It is stong</p>
<p>Bad photo, but an awesome wallet ^-^ My roll of duct tape ran out so its mostly held together with packaging tape but still awesome none the less </p>
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) ^_^
<p>how much duct tape would you say you ended up using?</p>
<p>If I recall correctly it takes approximately 20-25 yards of tape to make this wallet. </p>
You could use a plastic sandwich bag.<br>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).<br>Now, cut inside the lines you drew, and use that instead :)<br>
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
love the animal skin.i'm going to attempt to do a coral snake skin pattern
Wow that looks amazing! congrats and enjoy
<p>Best wallet ever! Made it for my brother for christmas.</p>
<p>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!!!</p>
<p>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?</p>
<p>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.</p>
<br> This <br> is so cool.! I'm planning to make <br> one. And, the only thing missing then, is a Lanyard and, <br> little bit of customization for a perfect transformation!. Both goes <br> perfectly and cool together. I made it a habit of collecting them. They're an <br> added feature that expresses character, uniqueness, flexibility and <br> excellency for the one's wearing it that will get you noticed. So, visit here <br> for more --&gt;www.pumpkinstall.com/. Two thumbs up ;)! <br>
I'll take the crab juice!
How much are u selling them for
Well, just made my first one..I think I need a better ruler or eyes or something..Will keep on making till they look as good as the one in the pic.
is yours think mine is is there a way to make it less thick
Please make a video of all the steps!!! I don't eve understand step 2 <br>
whew finally finished my own. I dunno what kinda duct tape was used here... but the one I used seems to make the wallet pretty thick hehe... feels very durable, I likey :D Addin this to favorites
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 &quot;inner&quot;, 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?
I love this instructable, I think this might be the first one I have ever actually used! <br><br>So I made a regular duct tape one, but couldn't do the coin pouch because I ran out of tape :(<br><br>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????????
check out the new video on step 4.
i made the four squares and now i am REALLY confused do u tape the squares together? what do u do?!
I've added several new pictures. hopefully this will better illustrate what i meant.
sorry but i still cant quite get it.... whats the yellow? whats the gray? im sorry for the tublr ;_' i rlly like the wallet so i rlly wanna make it
i finally posted a video for step 4.
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.
Hey you should post a video on how to do this.
<p>i love the wallet itself but i lost it on step 4...</p>
i posted a video that should help.
ok figrued it out Corrections: 4) Using your ruler, make the WIDTH of the tape sheet exactly 2.75" after applying the 4th piece and folding it over. The length should stay 3.75" 5) Repeat Steps 1-4 again so you make 2 more tape-rectangles. 6) Repeat steps 1-4 once more, but this time the length of each strip should measure 3.5". This will make another, shorter box. The Width will still be 2.75" 7) Skip this 8) Skip this 9) With your ruler, measure the 3 sheets of equal size to 3 3/8" length, keeping the 2.75 width, score and cut. The one sheet that was 3.5" long, measure and cut to 3" in length even. 10) Cut 4 strips of tape measuring 2.75" long each. Place one piece over an end of each tape sheet. This will be to seal the edges basically and look nice. Hope this helps.
I don't think people were having issues with this section... I'm having difficulty starting with #12. but thanks for clarifying! Any help with #'s 12-21??<br />
