Pocket Pal (Revisit)

Introduction: Pocket Pal (Revisit)

About: I think it's fun to shoot guns & build things. Also, I love to play football, baseball, and basketball. I play the piano and I like to build electronics.

It's back and better than ever...
And just in time for Valentine's Day!!!
If you need a gift for the friend who has everything, follow these easy steps and make them a Pocket Pal.

Step 1: Supplies

First you will need supplies to make your Pocket Pal.
1. Duct Tape choose the color or color's you want to use
2. Sissors
3. Knife (not shown)
4. Playing card or a Trading card
5. Sharpie (optinal)

Step 2: Making the Inner Pocket

Now, cover the card sticky side up with duct tape as in pictures #1 and 2.

Step 3: Making the Inner Pocket Part 2

Next, you will need to repeat the last step except this time the tape will be sticky side down, as in picture #1.

Step 4: Making the Bottom

Then, you will need to cut a piece of duct tape about an inch bigger than the bottom of the pocket pal. Next, you need to place the piece of duct tape on the bottom of your pocket pal like picture #1.
Then, fold the piece over, so it covers the entire bottom like in picture #2. Then, trim off the scraps like in picture #3.

Step 5: Extra Pocket

Wanna take it a step further? Then, add another pocket.
First, cut another piecce of tape 1/2" bigger than the bottom of the Pocket Pal as in picture #1.
Then, cut another piece of tape 1" smaller than the previous one like in picture #1.
Next, shave a centimeter off the top of the smaller piece of tape like picture #2.
After that, put the two pieces together like in picture #3.
Finally, put the pieces of tape on the Pocket Pal like in picture #4
Sticky line on the bottom.

Step 6: Coin Pocket

Wanna get crazy with it, then make a coin pocket!
First, cut two strips of duct tape 3" long, then put them together like in picture #1.
Next, roll the tape into a tube sticky side up like in picture #2. Then, place the tube on the bottom of your pocket pal like in picture #3.
After that, with your knife, cut a slit on the tube a little smaller than a quarter as in picture #3.
Next, cover the whole tube in tape sticky side down, except for the slit, and the top hole as in picture #4.
Finally, the whole on the top of your coin pocket is where you are going to get your change out. So, to make a flap for removing your change, you will need to cut a 2x2" piece of tape and place it sticky side down on top of the hole as in picture #4. Peel the piece of duct tape back when you need to get the change out.

Step 7: Last Step

Now you have done it! You've made a Pocket Pal, so either keep it for your self, or go give it to somebody.
The Pocket Pal is a great present for Birthday's, Christmas, and even Valentines's Day.

And Remember Give Duct Tape!!!

    Cool! Very easy idea, but what does it actually do? It's just like a holder... but nice job. :P

    Is this for an ID holder? Credit card holder? A quick wallet? Nice idea though.
