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:
-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)
-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
Step 2: Cutting out the Design.
For this step, you would want to cut out the design for your wallet. You just tape the duct tape and paste it over your intended cover design. I suggest something durable like metallic gift wrap which I used here. I made a dumb mistake by cutting out just a large rectangle instead of adding flaps. I didn't make a picture, but check out other duct tape wallet tutorials and you'll see what I mean. I just took some duct tape to make a piece of tape fabric twice as tall as it should be so that I can just fold it over. Notice that I added a little gap in the middle so that the wallet would fold easier.
P.S: the reason why the top of the wallet isn't bordered is because the edges of the square have extra gift wrap over the duct tape which i wrapped over... kinda hard to explain.. but it gives a better look with the same amount of durability, just adds about an extra millimeter.
