This instructable includes free downloadable templates (optional),
does not require glue, scissors or tape to build, and has separate pockets for credit cards and bills.
I'm dedicating this to my 3 year old son, who photographed the steps for us. He seemed to like his wallet, and when he lost it, I was able to quickly make him another one. To add authenticity, I'll keep the next fake credit card that comes in the mail with an offer letter and let him carry it around.
Start by printing one of the templates (attached PDFs) or simply grab a plain sheet of legal paper.
Note: this wallet was inspired by The two minutes paper wallet
Step 1: Fold over the bottom 1 1/3"
The measurement is an approximation. In fact, if you don't have a ruler handy you can use half the height of a credit card.
You've now created the inside of the credit card pocket.
Step 2: Fold over the bottom 1 13" again
By folding this over twice, you get a nice rounded edge holding in the credit card. If you are more interested in ultra-thin wallets, you can skip this fold.
Step 3: Fold the bottom 2 inches under
You'll want to make sure all your folds have good creases, so they stay flat and tight.
