This wallet is made from an old phone book, or newspaper. The wallet takes only a few minuets to make... and uses only a few sheets of paper (phonebook page), tape and a cutting device.(scissors or a knive)
Be creative, you can do what I did, and use the page of the phonebook that has your number on it, or even use a page with your freinds number. Either way, its a pretty sweet wallet.
