Duck Tape Wallet




Introduction: Duck Tape Wallet

About: Hey, my name is Jason. A little bit about myself is that well, I love photography, cooking/baking, creating, etc. About myself physically, I'm a male, I'm 5'7", Brunet. Personality wise, I'm usually…

Extremely easy and cheap way to make a new wallet, fun functional and good looking.  will look like you bought it from a store!

Step 1: What You Need

Duct tape
Ruler (optional)

Step 2: Build It!

 Start with one piece of duct tape sticky side up.

Put another sticky side down over half the other piece.

Flip that over and the down becomes up and keep moving along with steps 1,2&3 (MANY pictures to help!!!).

Step 3: Can You Do Basic Shapes?

 Cut and make one side straight.

Measure 8 1/2 inches to the other side and make a straight line.

Step 4: Fold and Tape.

 fold in half,

Cut 2 pieces of tape roughly 5 inches long (you can guestimate).

use the 2 pieces to tape the sides together to make a "canoe" like shape.

snip off the extra tape on top and bottom.

on the top (opening) use your fingers to push the tape apart.

Step 5: Almost There!

 the Wallet should now look like so....

Now fold in half to make a crease line.

Step 6: Pockets!!!


to make the pockets, take a piece of tape and set a card down.   the tape should be a bit longer than the card.

use the same technique as in step 2 to make the pockets.

Make the card straight on both sides

put the card now, on the tape it should be about 1 centimeter wider on both sides..

to do the verticle ones, put a big piece on the center holding down both pockets and little pieces on each side.

(pic 17)

Tape the shorter side onto the wallet with a long piece of tape.

make the card about a centimeter above the tape and fold. yes, one side should be longer than the other!

It should now look like the last picture. with lots of tape and 2 pockets.

Step 7: Finished!

 if you want to use color tape like i did in my intro, all you do is use this same exact instructable but once your done you cover it in color tape.

    yep i just did stripes like a half a piece of black half of orange and half of green to cover it and then did the pattern diagonal with full strips. and on the otherside you can do the same or just leave it gray.
