Step 1: Begin Taping the Inside Cards Together
Lay three cards face up about 1/4 inch apart. Cut a strip of tape to hold them together.
Flip the three over using caution and tape the same spot on this side as well -- the doubling of tape will not only make the seam stronger, but also prevent your money from sticking to the pocket.
Step 2: Cut Pockets
Once they are cut, lay them face down onto the face up side of the cards from step 2.
Step 3: Tape Pockets On
This next step is crucial in keeping the wallet together. Use a razor blade (scissors will get stuck and become a pain) to cut two strips of tape -- approximately 6 inches long by 1/4 inch wide. These will be used to reinforce the new seams and make sure your valuable cards do not slip out later.
Now that your strips are cut, begin wrapping them around the seam starting in the back and carefully going along the entire seam. Start low enough that the strip both starts and ends on the back side of the seam -- this will make the tape stick togher when the wallet is constantly opened and closed. You will want to do this two both of the seams.
Step 4: Secure the Pockets
To do this step, cut 2-3 inch strips and wrap around all five edges (two sides and three bottoms).
Step 5: Now Start the Outside
Step 6: Joining the Inside and Outside
Once the layers are lined up, carefully pick up and use another 2-3 inch strip of tape to secure them together. Do this for all three bottom edges.
Adjusting if necessary, make sure the layers are still lined up and tape the edges together. The wallet is essentially finished; however, it will become tattered in no time if it is not reinforced better with the process from the next step.
Step 7: Aesthetic and Functional Reinforcements
I apologize in advance for how dark the next picture is. Nonetheless, cut a strip roughly 4 1/2 inches long. Start on the inside and place 3/4 of an inch on the bottom edge. Wrap completly around the front smoothing as you go. Hopefully there will be between 1/4 and 3/4 of an inch of tape left at the top. Carefully open the pocket and fold the tape against the backside of the outside layer.
Step 8: Enjoy Your "New" Card Wallet!!!
I also posted pictures of the first wallet i made. As i mentioned in the introduction, i was only using brown tape for visibility, so please to not use brown tape but rather clear tape. I would also not suggest using the Ace of Spades for the outside -- yes, everybody wants it, but i personally find the writing to be gaudy and not necessary. I think that random cards work best to make the wallet feel authentic and original. Thank you all for following my very first instructable.
