This is my first instructable and i cannot take all of the credit for this creation. I have seen it elsewhere online; however, i have made quite a few modifications and the wallet now functions better and lasts much longer (some of my friends have been using theirs daily for months now and they are still in perfect condition). Essentially this intructable is a wallet comprised entirely of old playing cards. The more expensive and thus thicker cards are preferable as they will last longer and will resist bending. The other major component of this wallet is tape..and lots of it. For the purpose of visability, i used brown packing tape for the pictures listed whereas on a normal wallet I would certainly use clear tape. Now lets begin shall we?
Step 1: Begin Taping the Inside Cards Together
There are going to be two opposing sides where face cards are visible...this happens to be the interior of the two. The cards used are obviously personal preference. Because i had created so many of these for my friends, i created a rig to hold the cards better while i taped; however, this is not a necessity.
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
Now I use my other rig to cut three cards down by about an inch. I use a razor blade now but in the beginning scissors worked just fine (razor blade is just quicker, only difference). Use cards which you do not care about as they will not be seen.
Once they are cut, lay them face down onto the face up side of the cards from step 2.
