Paper wallet- What does it mean to you? Answered

Picture of

We're moving the furniture round you'll see. Back to normal it soon shall be. Meantime you can quit your boredom. Our paper wallet, oh so awesome. No bulky clips or zips to break. A simple wallet no loss at stake. The minutes few, they soon shall pass. For your efforts you'll have a blast. All you need is some printer paper. Grab some scissors and we'll see you later. When the furniture is back in place. Make a topic, it's your own space. Display that wallet and soon you'll see. Why this place means so much to me. Thanks I'bles.com!

I saw this message tonight and I actualyl did it!!! (well, life is pointless without the instructables site up). Amazing! no glue, no staples, just plain old paper, I love it. Not that I´m actually using it as a wallet... but is cool to keep documents and cards, I'll try to add a waterproof coating to the paper to see how it goes. (Acronal®). 5/5 for the clever way to keep us entertained while you're doing your stuff.

lol obviously the paper wallet isn't boring per se. in fact I've been showing it to everyone. but mine isn't so special since you all around here have seen the basic paper wallet. Also I have a bit of a problem because I'll need to make it taller since our bills are larger than a dollar bill (which fits perfectly) but I still have to see if it fits on a letter size piece of paper which is a big plus. I need to check my printer's margins. legal size would be great too but I'd like to make it wider also since personal cards don't fit in the front pockets too well. I know in the end I'll be drawing it by hand... I'm not doing any sort of mass production of paper wallets.

Hmm, how does it last very long? In the USA anyways, the money would be more durable then the wallet :-)

Of course, it might not be worth as much as the wallet LOL

It looks a little cluttered, to be honest.

The wallet is a symbol of discretion. I just stumbled across a nasty comment another Ibler had made about me, but before I could give him a piece of my mind, the paper wallet showed up. Now I am calm again, and can behave myself as I should!

Ah, the paper wallet powers have many forms. It reminds us of how simple some things are, such as nasty comment makers.

I always seem to miss the wallet. I've only seen it once. :P Things are always fancier when it's gone, though. Bigger pictures, yayayay!

Yes that is true, but he does hold a certain place in my heart. You just have to love to hate him.

The wallet to me, is like a symbol of pain... I only see it when the thing i love is not accessible.
