Step 1: Choose your Duct Tape

For the first step you need to decide what color(s) and type of duct tape you want to make your money pouch in. Duct Tape comes in many different colors and in varying thicknesses. For something like this I suggest using a lightweight thin duct tape, such as a generic brand or Duck brand tape. It should take only part of a roll or one small roll.

Step 2: Gather your tools

All you'll need is a clean workspace and a pair of scissors. If you can't find a clean workspace though, any place will due as long as you have enough space to work.

Step 3: Create the Back and front

This step is pretty simple just take a piece of duct tape as long as you want, about the size of a dollar, but smaller works well to. The process for the back is repeated to make the front. Don't worry if your duct tape wrinkles, as long as it remains relatively even. If you have any extra duct tape hanging off just wrap it around. After you have both pieces made, line the two pieces up and use a single piece of tape to bind three of the sides leaving one of the long sides open at the top.
dude, neither of these links have to do with a duct tape pouch, both of them were duct tape wallets, but yes, duct tape creations have been going on for god knows when, so dont just bag on someone cuz their showing their own creation to the world

ignore the negativity. it's a great deviation from the standard wallet idea, so it's cool. My friends and i are always making stuff out of duct tape, alumninum foil, and cardboard. four of us once took all day to each make our own outfits and then wore them to the IHOP Restaurant that night! this is cheesy, but you could even incorporate your money pouch idea into a type of pouch that you slide onto a belt--like if you were making a gi joe or star wars commando outfit. they are always wearing those belts with pouches on them. hehe.

I've never heard of duct tape wallets and think they look great; thanks for sharing the idea.

One persons idea might be boring for some and a good idea to others. If someone new to this site sees sarcastic remarks people get after something is posted they might decide to keep some really good ideas to them selves. Which is against the whole reason this site came about.
