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

Picture of 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.

Step 2: Cut Your Cardboard

You need to trace the Altoid tin (the top, it's bigger), onto cardboard twice, then cut it out.

Step 3: Cover Cardboard With Duct Tape

Cover each side of both pieces of cardboard with duct tape. Then trim the excess off of the sides.
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

Put two pieces of foot long duct tape on top of each other to create one big strap.
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.

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.
