Step 1: Step 2

Get all that you will need to make your wallet

Step 2: Step 3

WIth your pliers - open up the 8 track and remove the music ribbon. If you can use the pliers to pull off gently some of the bulky plastic from the inside that would be great too.

Take 1 side of the 8 track and trace on some fabric. This will be the lining once the zipper is glued on.

Step 3: Step 3

Glue in the zipper with your trusty hot glue gun - don't burn yourself. Glue the zipper to each side carefully.

Step 4: Step 4

WIth the fabric - line the inside of your new 8 track wallet. I again used my glue gun for this step.

Then you are all done - add some loose change, lipstick, a stick of gum and you are on your way.
