Introduction: THIN Duct Tape Wallets!!!
Things you'll need: at least 2 rolls of different colored duct tape,and an exacto knife and cutting board. (or scissors)
Cut two 8 inch pieces of duct tape,
Then turn them sticky side up.
Then lay them on top of each other sticky side to non sticky side, making the sheet 3 inches tall.
Next, cut two more 8 inch pieces out of a different color
Then carefully place the two strips on top of the 3 inch sheet you made earlier
-make sure you leave about 1/4 " of sticky on the top for trim. If you forget, it's not that big of a deal.
Then fold over the trim
Your finished sheet will look like this: and that will be the front side of the wallet
Then cut eight strips of 4" tape, (it doesn't matter what color) and put them in groups of two, then lay each group on top of each other sticky side to sticky side
So they look like this: ( each 'sheet' is not sticking to any other sheet, only the duct tape strips are sticking to each other) and those are the pockets
Then trim of just a little
Then take a 8 " strip and cut it in to fourths
Those will be used for trim on the pockets. The way You put on the trim is you lay the 1/4 strip on the pocket about 2/4 " on. Repeat that step for the others
Then cut a bunch of 4" strips and take one of them and one pocket. Lay the pocket down on the left side of the wallet just below the trim and take your 4" strip and put it on the pocket to adhere it to the wallet, then do the same on the right side and below the left and right pocket except this time place the pocket just below the trim on the first pocket
So it looks like this:
Then cut a 4" strip
And cut it in half
Then place it in the middle of the wallet making sure that the strip is covering a little of all the pockets
Then you can either fold,
Or cut off the excess
Then cut two 8" strips and two 9" strips
Lay the two 8" pieces on top of each other to make 3"
Then take a 9" piece and place it on the sheet you made just barely making sure you leave an even amount of sticky on the sides
Then take the other 9" piece and place it on leaving an even amount of sticky on the sides, and on the top also.
Then turn it so the sticky portion is sticky side up then turn it so that the sticky that was on the top, is now on the bottom, then place your wallet; pocket- side- up in the middle of the the sheet you made earlier
Then cut squares out of the bottom corners
And fold all of the sticky parts over into the wallet
