This instructible shows you how to get your money stolen for less than 50p!
n.b. This wallet is designed to fit notes up to the British £20 so you may need to adjust the sizes for American money.

Things that don't work very well:
Change falls out!
Change pocket is a bit small.
Card pocket is a too small.

This is my first instructible so please tell me how to improve.

 

Step 1: You Will Need

Materials:
Plastic book cover- ~£0.20
Double sided sticky tape- ~£0.05

"Tools":
Scissors
Ruler
Pencil
Money(to test it out!)

Step 2: Mark Out and Cut Out Pieces

These are the sizes that I cut:

175mmx100mm for the main piece, I would make this a bit bigger than I did to allow for a bigger card holder.

70mmx50mm for the coin pocket, I would make this a bit bigger and mabe include a flap to keep the change in.

57mmx97mm for the card holder, (My book cover had a flap at one end already folded over which was the perfect size for a credit card) I would definitely cut this wider though because my card actually pushed out some of the tape.

Step 3: Stick It Together

Use the double sided sticky tape to tape it together as shown in pictures 2 and 3.

Step 4: Your Done!

Now you can sit back and enjoy your new wallet! :-)

    No the current current exchange rate is 50p = $1.0041. i.e about 1 dollar and half a cent.

    I'd use clear tape for a start. However, to keep the change inside you could use more folding sections / flaps. (I don't keep change in my wallet)

    That's what I thought about the flaps hence I suggested using flaps to keep the change in. And as for the clear tape, I had the book cover already from an old maths textbook and I didn't think of clear tape, Someone else did though! Personally I prefer my design because with the clear tape one there are visible joins but i guess with mine you have the double sided sticky tape showing through. So it's whichever you prefer the look of really.
