How to make a shiny Duct Tape trifold wallet using more than just tape

Picture of How to make a shiny Duct Tape trifold wallet using more than just tape

Tired of making ugly duct tape wallets, but still want that duct tape essence? Well here it is! My old wallet was trusty, but thick. The best option for a thin wallet was the all-ett billfolds, but i didn't want to spend $30 or wait for shipping! Unfortunately I've never made a duct tape wallet before nor a paper one, but that doesn't stop me! Well anyway being a novice, it took me one and a half hours but for you pros I bet a lot less.

Step 1: The Materials

For this step you will need:

-Duct tape
-Any other type of tape you want for designs and bordering or who knows what
-scissors (for cutting of course)
-something for the outside material of the wallet ( I used gift wrap)
-scotch tape
-a ruler, pencil (to draw and measure out wallet design)
-a idea of how your ideal wallet should look like. Maybe a stencil of your idea wallet size.
-clear plastic for id slot

Yeah, but there is a company called "Duck Tape" that makes a similar product.

it is duct tape it says duck tape duct tape :/
They really do have a brand of tape called "Duck" now...either from all the mispronunciations or the fact that it's waterproof, I don't know.
Awesome job! Great pictures, great Instructions. Usually I don't like duct tape Instructables, but this one is just awesome! Nice job! +1 rating.

Thanks... I really thought i wrote too much though, but yeah thanks... I didn't want to make a pure duck tape wallet in the first place.
Thats a good thing. I hate those instructables where they think the pictures just explain themselves.
nice work...i'm going to try to make it soon

Nice instructions. Professional duct tape wallets are found on Duct Tape Revolution. They carry many items made from 100% duct tape.
