Picture of Magic Duct Tape Wallet
It's a magic wallet, made out of duct tape. The magic wallet has been done before, but I decided to make one, dirt cheap. This should last a while, and if it gets destroyed, just take another fifteen minutes and make another one.

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.

Step 1: Crap You Need

Don't need much, 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.

This was a really awesome project. I made one with my little sisters fave duct tape and she really likes it. One thing that will be good to know: The off brand duct tape is narrower than a card. It really is. So I had to make a few adjustments. But that's fine. Btw I love Doctor Who, if that is what your name is off of.

I have tried to make many wallets out of duct tape, but I'm never patient enough to finish. It looks soooo easy!

Well, maybe a Jelly Baby would help?
Yes. Or, a banana? Bananas are good. ALWAYS TAKE A BANANA TO A PARTY.
Or some tea and jammie dodgers
Or Some fish fingers and custard.
