add packing tape to the back and front of the cut out card frame. then get a card of you choosing and put it behind the the card frame taping both short sides and one long side shut.  add tape to one short side and stick the id holder holder firmly in the middle of the wallet.  do the same to the other side

Step 8:

for the card holders, cut a card in half then get a piece of tape thats slightly bigger than the half card itself and put it over the card. then get your credit card(mines the black duck tape) and put it where you want.  Lay the half card over the credit card and fold the tape over the edges

finally to flatten the wallet out, put a thick book over the wallet and let it sit until it is flat, or keep it you pocket a lot
