Next, I folded the strip in half, then placed it on the clear packing tape. I then folded the tape around the edges of the strip. By doing this, the wallet will become more durable and will be water resistance. Next, I taped 2 strips together creating a 90 degree angle.

Step 3:

Start weaving by taping one set onto the cutting board. Tape the other sets next to each other. After doing this, weave the overlapping strips together.

Step 4:

After you finish weaving, clear tape one of the sides. Then trim down the sides so it becomes 8 by 3 inches. I then went ahead and added trim. I cut a strip that was 7.5 by 3/4 inches. I folded it in half and taped it to the edge.

Step 5:

Next I made the pockets. I cut strips that were 7 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches. I covered one side in tape and used that to attach it do the wallet.

Really nice and cool little project thanks for the idea! Made mine from an office supplies magazine to have some cool random colours and designs on it and kept the back pocket open as a big one to hold some cash as well as cards! Thanks again for the idea!

The wallet looks great! I love the color that the magazine added!
