Instructables
Hello.

Discovered this site a little while ago. I made a magic duct tape wallet about a week ago thanks to this great instructable duct tape magic wallet.

I liked it a lot, but still wanted a few more things so I constructed this beast of a wallet and decided to show others how I did it.

The wallet pictured holds: Driver's license, Credit/debit card, receipts, 512MB of flash memory, and also has a money clip.

Step 1: Tools and such

Picture of Tools and such
Tools:
-scissors
-razor blade
-pen

Materials needed:
-Duct tape
-sheet of paper
-scotch tape
-strong thin magnets
-thin cardboard
-Credit card USB flash memory card
-time to kill

Step 2: USB card

Cover the usb cord on both sides with paper and scotch tape

Then place two magnets on the front of the usb card in the middle and cover it with duct tape.

After that, take a pen and out line the covered up cord only on the back side. Using the razor, cut the duct tape off to uncover the usb cord.

Step 4: Card holder side

Cut a piece of thin cardboard the size of the usb card and cover with duct tape.

The next step is to attach both sides to create the magic wallet.

At this point, I will direct you to this instructable because it goes into better detail about the whole process. duct tape magic wallet

Step 5: Card holder side continued

Now on to the card holding mechanisms.

Cut yet another piece of thin cardboard to the size of a credit card. Cover one side in tape.

Open the wallet up and attach the thin cardboard to one side.

Using the razor blade, cut around the X pattern.(see pic 1)

 Just one problem... MAGNETS!!? Ahhh!!! Hasn't anyone ever told you not to put magnets near a credit/debit card? No offense put don't do that. (Also the USB memory could get it...
Mythbusters debunked that myth
Really? Well I don't get much TV, so I wouldn't know. Thank you for informing me.
Why would anyone wanna have magnets near their credit/debit cards? You will probably degauss your cards!
And make the wearer radioactive, too!

thats cool maybe like incorporate a zip or something?
And the magnets don't screw with credit cards?
i bet those magnets do wonders for your usb.
actually, a flash drive isn't magnetic media, a magnet shouldn't affect it.

Where do you get a USB card like that? It's really neat. Awesome wallet BTW.

tts a nice idea to have a flash drive put in there. but i think you could've used sheet magnets instead of those round chunky ones. just a suggestion! :D your baby's real cute!
der1311 (author)  lightafire6 years ago
I searched high and low for sheet magnets, but couldn't find any that were strong enough. So I settled on chunky round magnets.
oh! well, in tt case, i guess the chunky ones will do too! :D
flashdrive part = awesome
not bad. i like the random cool flashdrive :-)

I wouldn't feel happy about having magnets close to my cards all the time. Maybe a large paper clip, half of it secured inside the body of the wallet, would be a safer solution. Other than that, flash memory in a wallet is an awesome idea.
as the mythbusters have proven, it takes a powerful magnet to corrupt magnetic strips on cards.
