About:
One day after work, I walked into Daiso Japan on Market St, and saw card case.
I purchased it thinking it'd work as a wallet replacement.
I quickly found that something needed to be done to hold cash.
Fast forward:
I joined TechShop and gained access to the End Mill
learned to sew
& came up with ideas

Features:
+Cash Band
+RFID Protection
+Highly Customizable
+Notes can be put on the inside (Magnetic or simply with some tape)

Let us see how it's made!



Materials:
Stainless Steel Card Case (I got mine from Daiso)
Elastic Band
Misc. Magnetic Stuff

Tools:
Mill
1/16" End Mill
File
Sewing Kit
Lighter

Step 1: Measure!

Mark 1/8" from the Edge
&
wide enough to fit the Elastic Band through (mine was 1 1/16")

Step 2: Mill Time.

1/16" End Mill snap pretty easily so be careful.
I found using a moderately high RPM and a slow Feed speed worked the best.

(Tape it close for safe measure!...or not, you know, it's your life :P)

Step 3: Measure That the Hole You Just Milled Is on Point!

Yes.

Step 4: File That Bish!

Watch for scratches but don't worry too much, they're inevitable.

Step 5: Do the Elastic Band

Burn the ends of the Elastic Band so the thread has something more solid to anchor to.
Fold about 1/4" and use a Back Stitch to secure.
x2 for both sides.

Then use a Overcast Stitch (or whatever stitch you'd like) to secure the ends together.

This was for an order so I thought I'd try my hand at some design.

Step 6: Get Your Magnetic Poetry!

Included a fortune for the guy.

Normal stainless steel isn't magnetic, check the edges of hole you milled don't rust
