Instructables
For a high quality, eco-friendly, and expandable paper wallet that will last you years check out the Tyvek wallet from PAPERWALLET.  
www.paperwallet.com

To create your own paper wallet from a normal piece of paper follow these instructions: 

One sheet of 8.5 by 11 paper folded, with minimal cutting, and one piece of tape = durable, seamless, useable, write-onable, minimalist wallet.

Step 1: Hamburger fold squared

neatly fold the 8.5"x11" sheet of paper in half (to look like a hamburger shape as opposed to a skinny hot dog fold). open it, and fold the two flaps into the middle, so it is split in 4 (second picture).

Step 2: Fold in 1/2 and then crease

now fold the paper in 1/2 perpendicular to the other folds and crease from the folds you just made. notice how it has a natural tendency to stay closed, this is the basic wallet shape. now unfold.

Step 3: Cut

Picture of Cut
Cut along the black lines (viewed from the inside) please note picture comments.

Step 4: Fold flaps

fold the 2nd and 4th flaps from the top inside on either side.

Step 5: Tape

tape the lower cut (not the diamond) so both sides are flush, your paper will not be flat anymore.

NOTE: this step can be done after step 7, it will be harder, but the wallet will lay flatter and be more square.

you can also put a small piece of tape at the top of the diamond (on the 2nd panel down)
as this is now the wallets weakest point

now refold, like in step 2

I made mine out of cartoons from the newspaper and "laminated" it with packaging tape. Love the design by the way

That's pretty sweet. I made one just tonight but made it like I make my duct tape wallets I used to do. I have a really simple way of doing it and, if you wouldn't mind, would like your permission to make an instructable on it. So what do you say?

Nice methods! It is so great for making a personal wallet by justing using a paper. I have another idea for making starbuck paper by just using their paper bag. Interesting idea as well. If you are interested, go:

i made a window for photos (i used this foil where you put documents in (so they stay clean)for the window.i don't know the english name.photo attached!) and some card slots :) also i would recommend that you cut the corners of the flaps! easier to assemble! awesome ible! love it ♡
