Introduction: Sealed Copy of an ID

About: I am a mechanical engineer , a CAD enthusiast, a DIY fanatic and a punster who loves to try out new things every day

Some background first

There are so many places where a form of identification is needed before one can be let in. I know a batch of these and guess what, I always had problems getting past these. This is because I somehow always managed to to carry the wrong purse, leaving the one with the IDs behind.

Then one day it occurred to me, I could actually have a copy of my ID in each of my purses.

This is how it is done.

Step 1: Collect the Required Materials

These are the materials and tools you need;

1. Printed coloured copy for both sides of the ID

2. Transparent cello tape

3.Office glue

4.A pair of scissors

Step 2: Let's Start Right Away

Using the scissors, cut out an outline of each face of the ID from paper on which it was printed.

For ease, start by cutting out rough patches of each face then outline the pieces after.

Step 3: Sticking the Two Faces of the ID Together

Apply office glue to one side of one "half" of the ID. Be sure to apply glue on the face that will be on the inside.

Stick the two "halves" together.

Extra care should be taken to ensure that the two faces are directly besides each other at every corner.

Step 4: Use the Cello Tape (finally!)

Place the ID on a clean surface and cover it's with cello tape. The cello tape should be used in such a way that the different layers do not overlap (one layer should be apply immediately where the previous layer stopped).

Extra length of cello tape material should be used so that some of it is left on the sides for removing the ID from the flat surface.

Cut off the extra length of cello tape from the sides of the ID.

Repeat this process for the other face.

Step 5: Final Touches

Cut the corners of your ID into curves (this gives it a greater finer look).

U can now keep your new ID and make many others for your other purses.
