Create a wallet from five one dollar bills. Why keep money in your wallet, when your money can be the wallet?
This instructable was originally called "The Billet", but in order to enter the wallet contest, the name was changed to The Five Dollar Wallet. The wallet is very durable, mostly because it is made of US currency.
This is the poor man's version of a rich man's wallet!
This is my first instructable, so please post comments
Step 1: Create the Backing
Cut a piece of plain printer paper so that it is the size of a dollar bill. Then, using clear tape, attach the two short sides of the dollar to the paper backing to make a loop shape.
Step 2: Add Inner Lining
To keep the right orientation on all the pieces, make sure to tape them exactly as shown. Flip the previous step over, and tape another dollar to the back along the top edge. This will be the lining of the large cash pocket.
Step 3: Create the Card Pocket
Fold another dollar bill (#3) in half so it chops Washington's face in half from top to bottom. Insert a credit card into the bill. Now, fold over the edges around the card and tape down so they won't come undone. It should now be a pocket. Be careful not to make the folds too tight, or a card may not slide into it easily and it may tear.
Step 4: Add the Inside
Unfold the outside and inner liner from before. Tape an additional dollar (#4) to the right as shown. The dollar that has the paper lining attached should be on the far left. This new dollar will become the inside of the wallet. Tape along the edge good, because this is the bottom that will hold the cash in the wallet! Because of how the wallet will be folded, you should apply the tape to the side opposite of that shown in the picture.
