Ducktape wallet

In this instructable I will be showing you how to make simple but useful ducktape wallets. I have been making these every  sense I was a little kid. I still make them today, but mainly for friends and for gifts. Over timeI have learned to add change pockets, more paper money slots, and places to store credit cards and drivers license. Today though I will show you a simple two card pocket ducttape wallet.

Step 1: Materials and tools

To make a ducttape wallet you well need a small list of tools and material. These Items are a a roll of your choice of brand and color ducttape, a tape measure or paper dollar, and scissors. When it comes to buying ducttape I normally go with the normal gray, although I have made many colorful wallets in the past. What really matters when buying the tape thought is the quality and thickness. When buying ducttape don't buy cheap thin tape because it will only cause you trouble when you try to ripe it. Always go with a tape that has a tight weave and is a fairly thick (In ducttape terms of course).

Step 2: Starting point

When making a wallet you have to start by making the two sides that make up the money holding part of the wallet. To do this you can either make guess measurements by looking at the size of the dollar or by making a three by eight inch rectangle( these measurements are based on the usd). When doing this you start by making two eight inch strips and overlapping them to make the three inch in height needed. To keep your money from sticking to the ducttape you place two more strips of tape sticky side to sticky side to make a workable material. A hint to this is to not worry about the exact link and to go a little longer so that you can go back later and trim up the edges.  From here you must make another three by eight inch rectangle to end with a total of two rectangles.

thanks.your instructions were very helpfull.i think your guitar wallet is pretty cool.i made a wallet using leopard skin duct tape.it turned out better than i expected.
try ripping the tape instead of using scissors. It will give the finished product a way better look.
