Picture of

Moving the furniture? What kind of excuse is that? I had to go a full 20 minutes without access to the site. I started twitching!

Twitching? If you were me, you would know that twitching is nothing new. You did read my new forum topic so you know what I mean.

~Yes?

~How come?
-It's those Instructablers next door, they're doing something.
~Again? It's 2:45AM!
-I know!

I tried to visit the site, and it was closed down - apparently they were busy moving the furniture.

I should have taken a screenshot...

That's what the screen said - the site was down because they were busy moving the furniture, why not make a paper wallet while you're waiting?

It wasn't 503, it was deliberate. They did it to me on purpose.

I got that message on the day the HQ moved. Odd that you got it now.
Just stay where you are, the guys in white suits will be there soon. Relaaaax, everything will be alright.

I'm going insane too, my Instructable is taking a long time to show up. It's been five hours!
The men in white are here to help you now. Relaaaax, everything is going to be OK...

That explains why I couldn't acces the site. Still, I want to see whatever it is you're talking about. Does it involve puppies? Puppies are cute. And they poop.

And how were your wallets? I have a glue-up of aluminum foil and a printout between wax paper (used a rolling pin for flatness) drying up right now. Made two others, regular paper. But the dang pdf came out with margins, after scrap a dollar barely fits, printed out one without shrinking to fit, and it didn't print where the margins were! Had to guess / freehand the side notches. Of course with the wonderful storm blowing and the sky full of flashes and the rumbling, having to be without the site for a time was a bit easier to take. Not bad timing actually...

Really? Then you missed out on some good old fashioned fun! Used wood glue, dries water-resistant, had dull side out. Put it in the electric oven with just the light on, that warms it up enough for good drying and bread rising. Folded up stiff, seems pretty durable. Well compared to the 20# recycled printer paper at least. Looks pretty good and... shiny. Maybe I should get some fabric glue for next time. Worked for aluminum foil, seems it could work for fabric. Hey, maybe I could use dryer lint! The stuff rolls off the trap as practically felt (got many cats, one dog, much hair). Press between boards for maximum impregnation, it'll get stiff but I can work with it. Hey, there's got to be a good use for lint somewhere!

Psst, that text box top of this page, just type in "paper wallet" and hit Enter, you'll find them right off. Oh, and edit out the double-quotes before hitting Enter, that could be important.

Only takes five minutes. Just take the printout(s) and scissors with you when you next sit down for some quality time. And make sure you use the right paper for both events.
