Step 1: The Billfold
What you will need:
duct tape: silver, red, black, and white.
6 square and 2 half square legos
First rip/cut eight strips of silver duct tape that are 9 inches long.then lay one strip sticky side up, then lay another strip sticky side down halfway over the first strip.Then fold the remaining sticky part over onto the rest of the duct tape.Now flip the duct tape over and lay another strip sticky side down over the visible sticky part.repeat process until all eight strips have been used.After you have used the last strip, flip the sheet of duct tape over and fold the remaining sticky part over onto the rest of the duct tape sheet.
fold the sheet in half longways and trim the edges.Now rip/cut 2 four inch strips of duct tape and tape the sides together. (see pics)
Step 2: The NES Part
First rip/cut two strips of black duct tape that are a little smaller than the length of the wallet. (see pic)
then rip/cut 3 silver strips of duct tape that are about 2 1/2 x 9/16 inches,place them on the wallet like so. (see pics)
Then cut/rip a strip of white duct tape that's about 2/12 x 7/8, and put on the wallet like so. (again.....see pics)
Now take 3 square legos and set them on the sticky side of a small strip of white duct tape in a right angle form. Trace around the legos with your pen, and with your X-acto knife cut around the legos and Peel off the excess duct tape.
Now make a black Xusing the same method, then trim the black X so its a little smaller than the white X. Then place the trimmed black X over top of the white X. (see pic)
Now take your half square legos and set them (not touching) on the sticky side of a small strip of black duct tape, trace around them with your pen and cut them out using your X-acto knife. Next cut two square pieces of white duct tape that are about 3/4 x 3/4 inch (that's what square means) Then take your penny and lay it on the sticky side of a small strip of red duct tape, trace around it with your pen then cut it out using X-acto knife.(make two)
Place the red circles in the center of the white squares. Then take off the NES part by peeling off the big black strip, set aside for later use. (see pic)
Step 3: Pockets
I'm going to do the pockets and card holders with plain silver for simplicity, if you want to add details go right ahead.
first cut/rip 2 strips of duct tape that are about 4 1/2 inches long, overlap them by about a 1/2 inch. Trim them to be a little smaller than half the wallet, and lay them sticky side up on wallet. (see pics)
Then take three strips of duct tape that are about 5 1/2 inches long, put them face down on top of the other two connected strips. (see pics) Now make another pocket the same way with the opening facing towards the center of the wallet. if you dont want 2 pockets then don't make the second one, don't worry it wont make any difference if you don't make the extra pocket you just wont have as much storage space. :)
Step 4: Card Slots
first take your gift / credit card and rip/cut a strip of duct tape that's a little longer then the card. Then rip/cut a strip that about this big, see 2nd pic. Take the smaller strip and lay it sticky side down on top of the other strips sticky side. (try to center it as best as you can, see pic) then place it near the top of the wallet using the card as a guide for where you want to put it.
Now make two more card slots the exact same way and tape them progressively farther down on the wallet. (see pics)
Step 5: ID Card Holder
First take your gift / credit card and cut/rip four strips of duct tape that are a little longer than each side. (see pics)
Then take the zip-lock bag and with your X-acto knife cut a piece that is about 4 x 5 inches long.Now take one of the smaller strips of duct tape, flip it over and lay the short end of the plastic halfway over the strip of duct tape and fold the other side of the duct tape on top of the plastic, do the same thing with the remaining four sides. (see pics for help & further instructions)
Once you have finished the ID card holder flip the wallet over and replace the NES part of the back of the wallet.
Now you have a cool duct tape wallet that (sorta) looks like a NES controller!!!!!!!!
