Step 2: Making the Wallet Body

Picture of Making the Wallet Body
The wallet body will be cut from one large sheet of duct tape.  Our goal is to create a sheet that is 10” x 8” (10 inches wide, 8 inches tall).  The sheet will be trimmed down to its actual size after it is finished.

Begin by cutting approximately 10 strips of tape, each 10” long.

you can count on your wallet being stolen sometime on vacation if you're going to a sketchy developing world location.

Why would you go there? Well, my wife and I like to see the 'real' country. Take the popular transportation, eat at the normal vendors and stay in the homes of locals (yes, I've actually seen a cockroach crawl out of the main dish pot of food AFTER I ate all my supper..) and avoid the resort areas like the plague in general.

So we carry valuables in a hidden money belt deep in our clothing while carrying false I.D. And about $25-$50 worth in local currency in the "show" wallet basically so we don't piss off the petty thief who's gone to the effort of honing his skill and could be armed.

So a duct tape wallet is PERFECT!!! Bully to you for outside the duct thinking! I'm going to make five or ten or so for our next trip!
