Introduction: How to Make a Paper Wallet

Simple steps to make a paper wallet.

Step 1: Supplies

Here are the supplies you need. A 12 - inch ruler, scissors, pen or marker, and printer/copy paper.

Step 2: Fold It

1. Get your paper. 2. Fold it widthwise (hamburger style). Now unfold it.

Step 3: Fold It Again

Fold the paper into the middle crease. Now fold again so that you get something that looks like this.

Step 4: UNFOLD

Now unfold what you had. And it should look something like this.

Step 5: Mark It!

Look at the notes to see what to do.

Step 6: Cut, Tape and FOLD!

Cut what you marked and fold flaps 1 & 3 in and leave flaps 2 & 4 out. Tape the bottom part. NOT THE DIAMOND! Tape it front and back. PICTURE 2: Fold it like we did in Step 3. This is what your credit card slots will look like. PLUS MORE. PICTURE 3: you should have 4 flaps sticking out.

Step 7: Fold Flaps

Open your wallet and go on one side of it. Look at the notes for instructions. Do the same with the other side.

Step 8: You Are Finished.

YEAH!!! you're done already? That was fast. You should have 4 credit card slots and money pocket. Comment on how I did.plz.

Thanks! The instructions were really easy to follow. After i made my first one, I copy a picture off of google and printed it onto the paper then folded it. I will see if I can get  a picture of the wallet and post it on here. Thanks again.

This is an instructable that makes another formerly posted instructable, but with fuzzier photos and that whole "Plagiarism" thing hanging over it. Nice twist. Show us something original.

i like it the end was hard to understand but i figured it out on my own. i don't really think it's plagarizing because there are tons of things on instructables that are the same. some may have plagarized and some may have learned from somewhere else. but instructables is all about using others ideas and making them better or easier to understand.

This is a direct replica of the popular paper wallet already posted on this site. Also, the pictures are blurry. In the future you should check to see what has been posted before you and think of ways in which you can modify or add upon it.


I agree with randofo.
