Step 4: The First Connection

Sorry I couldn't make a note for each picture on this step i couldn't figure out how.
Picture 1. Make a piece of tape an inch longer than the cardboard pieces.
2. Fold in sticky sides touching.
3. Cut that hamburger style.
4. Tape one strip on the side of one of the cardboard 1 cm into the cardboard, the height of a dollar apart and wrap that around the back. (It should look like picture 4).
5. Okay, this part is confusing, keep what it looked like in picture 4 but put the other piece of covered cardboard on the strips that are hanging out and flip the entire "wallet" up side down and tape those loose strips to that piece of cardboard. Look on the picture for help.

Step 5: The X Tape

Heres what it should look like so far. (1st picture). Now make 2 more straps. i will put the pics up again in case you forgot. Take the 2 strips and make an X out of them. Tape the 2 strips together where they intersect but before doing that make sure the ends barely fit between the strait strips, look at the pic for help. Than put the x tape in between the two strait attached strips, look at the pic to get it right. Tape the x tape to the other cardboard.on the back of it so you cant see it when its open. tape the other side to the back of the cardboard with the x strip covering it. you should be able to open and close it on both sides.

Step 6: U Ah Dun!

It doesn't matter when you learned how to make it Doctor What posted the instructable first.

Good point, but if his is so much better, why are you spending your time looking at mine?

 Never said who's is better, only who posted first.
