Introduction: Little Wallet With Cardboard for MP3 Reader/Phone
Hey everyone! This is my first Instructable. I found something similar on Youtube but I wasn't satisfied, and I decided to do it myself. I used my own MP3 reader but you can take your phone, your tablet if you are courageous.
I'm french and 14 so I don't speak english very well, sorry.
Have a good tuto and enjoy !
Don't hesitate to ask me whatever you want in the comments!
Step 1: Step 1: Tools
- A piece of cardboard
- Some scotch/glue stick
- Some pens and felts
- A ruler
- Three sheets of paper
- A cutter or cisors (I prefer cutter)
Your MP3 reader or phone
Step 2: Step 2: Draw the Outline of Your Object and Cut
Draw the outline of your object and add another outline (to five milimeters). Then, cut the exterior one.
Step 3: Step 3: Do the 'step 2' Three Times and Cut
Step 4: Step 4: Cut the Interior Outline
Step 5: Step 5: Prepare Your Base
Take 3 sheets of paper, overlay them and cut out the shape of your pieces of cardboard.
Glue it. Do it 2 times and take one for later.
But you can use a Canson Paper of the color of your choice.
Step 6: Step 6: Add the Cardboard
Place the cardboard in the middle of your sheet with the MP3 reader.
Glue the three floors to the sheet and adjust. Be careful to let a little space between your device and the cardboard.
Step 7: Step 7: Cover the Cardboard
Cover the cardboard with some paper outside and in front of the future wallet (1 or 3 thickness).
Step 8: Step 8: Make and Add the Opening System
Take your second base (from step 5).
Cut (always your 3 sheets overlayed) a piece of paper (the length of your base X 5 cm of width) and glue about 2 cm on each face. You can use tape to secure all.
Step 9: Step 9: Make and Add a Clasp
Cut 2 pieces of paper (12 X 0,5//14 X 0,5) and fold it in two. Glue it and fold again in two.
Take the 12 X 0,5 paper and glue one face entirely. For the other face, just glue the end (to let something slide inside).
Take the 14 X 0,5 and glue the end on the back of the wallet. The beginning should slide in the other paper.
The clasp is finnished (you can decorate it).
Step 10: Step 10: Decorate
I did it before the clasp (that was an error).
Do whatever you want, you can vary the colors of the papers, the clasp, the opening system.
Step 11: It's Done!!
My model is really simple, but the frog one and the BMO one are a bit more complicated.
Thanks for reading me !
