Gorilla Tape Wallet With Card Slots

Introduction: Gorilla Tape Wallet With Card Slots

This wallet is tough and should last you a long time. You can also use the same exact method and steps if you are using normal duct tape. If you use duct tape it will be thinner and a little slicker. I've tried to make the tutorial as detailed and clear as possible but if you have any questions or didn't understand something just go ahead and message me and ill be happy to help. So let get started
