With the right materials and some careful work, you can create a minimalist, custom case for your every-day-carry essentials.  This case has a hook-and-loop closure, a loop for a carabiner, or wrist strap, and a front pocket for a couple of cards.

Step 1: You will need:

  • Duct tape
  • Transparent tape (packing tape, or even "Scotch" tape will do)
  • Cardboard
  • Adhesive hook-and-loop tape
  • Credit cards (or cardboard cut like credit cards)
  • Flexible plastic sheets (in this project, I used a really tough shopping bag)
  • Carabiner, or split key king

  • Ruler
  • Scissors (for cutting cardboard and plastic)
  • Utility knife (for cutting duct tape, and packing tape)
  • A big, clean working surface that you can stick, re-stick and unstick tape to (Hint: no hardwood dining tables)
how about using the packing tape as a window so you dont have to take your phone out
The velcro is a nice touch. Thanks for the share!
