For those that complain about the same ible.....try being creative; instead of being part of the problem, be part of the solution.....take the ible and make it better, bigger, smaller, or different in some way....insulated it against x-rays, or credit card readers....insulate it against Superman's Vision....something. Have you all lost your innovative spirit ?

Well, sure, but I've got a pile of paper wallets ten feet high. After 1,057 there's only so many ways to mod a paper wallet!!

Okay, not really. But paper wallets are boring.

Then innovate! Instead of paper, use something else....metal, leather, coat hangers, milk jugs....you know....be creative :-)

I've never actually made the wallet. I always mean to but I'll normally get distracted. :P

I like the paper wallet. Even though it isn't fun that I'bles is down for a few moments, paper wallet always brings a smile to my face.

The pure simplicity combined with its basic sleak nature, is absolute brilliance.

It is the basis and beginnings of a most prevalent modding movement, which I believe earns paper wallet its place.

Long live paper wallet!!

Note: no sarcasm intended what so ever.

Yes, i came across it while you were all sleeping before they updated the website! And again this morning, im guessing they were ironing out the creases.

The actual wallet it give instructions for are this one https://www.instructables.com/id/Paper-Wallet/
