The story behind it...
Well, I was watching QVC, and I saw that they were selling "magic wallets" for 20 dollars for a set of two. I thought, OMG, who in their right mind would pay that much for something that they can make with stuff around their house?? So, I decided to make one, on the cheap, with stuff in my bedroom. And I came up with this.
There is a magic wallet instructable out there already, and it is good, if you know how to sew.
If you like my Instructable, rate it please!!
Step 1: Crap You Need
-Duct Tape (for colors, go to Wal-Mart, they have every color imaginable)
-Stiff Cardboard (I used an old Converse shoebox)
-Altoid tin (trace this for wallet shape)
- You don't need an altoid box specifically, you could use a playing card, or anything wallet shaped that will fit cards into it.
Step 2: Cut Your Cardboard
Step 3: Cover Cardboard With Duct Tape
Sure, the wallet is not 100 percent duct tape, but if you don't use cardboard, it will be flimsy, and not work so well.
Step 4: Create Straps
Then cut the big one in half, hotdog style.
Then take the two strips, and cut them both hotdog style again to get four straps.
Step 5: Attach Straps
Then, flip over the card so that the straps are on the left, under the card. As in picture three.
Next, fold the straps over the card, so that they go right. As in picture four.
Place the other card on top, so that the straps are sandwiched between the two cards. Then trim the straps so that they are one to two centimeters away from the edge.
Last, use a piece of tape to attach the strap ends to the back of the card on top.
Step 6: Attach Straps Part Deux
Open the two cards and put the straps on the bottom card, in X formation. The two ends on the left need to go through the straps, as in picture one. Then place the top card on the bottom card again.
Trim the ends so that the straps are, once again, one centimeter away from the edges.
Make sure that the x straps do not overlap the horizontal straps, and that they are inbetween the horizontal straps.
Then tape the ends to the back of the cards. For the right side, tape the ends to the back card. For the left side, tape the ends to the front.
Step 7: Check Your Wallet
Then open it from the other side.
Then close it, and open it again from the side you started with.
Step 8: Add Pockets
You can make as many pockets as you want, on the front and on the back.
