This is my contribution to the many Duct tape wallets out there. I was inspired by some of the minimalist wallet online and at "everyday-carry.com". I made some for the kids they love them.

This wallet is very simple to make and looks great when you use 2 different tape colors as you can see.
It has a section for notes and 2 pocket on eater side for cards.

Hope you have fun making one.

Step 1: Make the paper template.

1. The things you will need.
2. Divide the paper into three I used 7cm for each section, cut off the execs.
3. Fold the paper in half to get the mid line.
4. Measure 10cm from the mid line to ether sides and cut off the exec.
5. Use the inside of a duct tape role and mark an arc in the center segment on the mid line.
6. Make folds on the segment lines.

Now you are ready for the Duct tape.
<p>Good Tip .. Stop by FedEx and grab a large Tyvek mail bag to use instead of standard paper.</p><p>Or just grab an amazing printed wallet at <a href="http://www.thewalart.com/" rel="nofollow">www.thewalart.com</a></p>
<p>I have made lots of these and they are so nice I use this one as my everyday wallet. nice and compact has a little wear but i will just make a new one thanks to this great instructable! </p>
This is sooo cool, I just made mine
<p>I seriously love this design. I've made two duct tape wallets now and have always struggled with the minimalist credit card pocket. It has ended up being the point of failure for both models. </p><p>My only suggestion is to make duct tape fabric instead of using a paper helper. It's tricky to get the hang of it, but if you use Dan's method (seen here: </p><p>http://www.instructables.com/id/quality-duct-tape-... you don't need the extra layer. Duct tape, as we all know from accidentally folding it, sticks extremely well to itself. So this would also remove the possibility of the tape pulling off of the paper (which is probably slim anyway). </p><p>Thanks for the IBLE!</p>

<p>Nice idea with the keys. The black and yellow look good.</p>
<p>I made this one (with key-holder and 8cm instead of 7 to fit the local 'notes'). Thank you very much!<br><br>https://www.allroundonlineshop.ch/wallet_001.jpg<br>https://www.allroundonlineshop.ch/wallet_002.jpg<br>https://www.allroundonlineshop.ch/wallet_003.jpg<br>https://www.allroundonlineshop.ch/wallet_005.jpg<br>https://www.allroundonlineshop.ch/wallet_006.jpg<br>https://www.allroundonlineshop.ch/wallet_007.jpg</p>
I am new at this and this is my fav thing i have seen on here
It was kinda hard
<p>this is so cool i made one and i am going to make a lot more </p>
<p>I just made this for my husband out of a Super Mario duct tape. I removed the bill pocket because he wanted a super thin, card-only wallet. Instructions were easy to follow. Thank you!</p>
I love making wallets i sold them at my local mall lol
I just made 4 of these in about 2 hours. Totally addicted. The only thing I changed was on the last one the opening for the cards is a heart rather than two curves. Thanks for the idea! :)
Nice idea.
Your wallets look very proffessional.
My daughter just made me one out of digital camo duct tape. Awesome... :)
Awesome wallet. I've made one outta packing tape so its totally clear and its pretty rad. I made a template and printed it on a transparency sheet. I'm attaching the template for all to enjoy. Just cut out the gray sections and fold on the black lines!
Good idea I think I'll make one too.
Thank you for the -ible! I have made a couple of duct tape wallets but never used them because they were too thick. The success for this is, I believe the lack of extra layers a more complicated design uses. <br> <br> I like the paper core too. It makes the patern easier to handle than sticking tape to tape....(ever try to separate it when there is a wrinkle or a missalignment? Ouch!) <br>Did you use the thinnest tape you could find? That was going to be my next try, to find the cheapest and therefor thinnest tape out there. <br>I think this will be a well used wallet when I make it. <br>Thanks again! <br>Chris
PS: Where did you find the colorful designed tape?
I got it at the HomeDepot. Not sure if it's the thinnest.<br><br> A tip to prevent the tape from sticking to munch is to lightly wet it with you finger, I used this trick when cutting out the hole in the wallet.<br><br>Martin.
Thank you for the tip! <br>To clarify, do you dip your finger in water and put it lightly on the whole surface before you stick it? Then I guess it would set after you are sure of the position and press it together? <br> <br>Chris
Yes I use a little water but only on the hole part after I have stuck it down, just to stop it from sticking to the scissors.<br>You could try it when sticking two pieces of tape together but I'm not sure if it will work.
cool wallet! I'll try to make one as soon as possible. Looks good! :)
Love the design, looks a little bit like a mighty wallet, but made better. I`m going to make this for sure.
