Paper Wallet




Introduction: Paper Wallet

This wallet is a 2 minutes or shorter wallet, and can be decorated anyway you want. all you need is a piece of paper and scissors or a knife!! Note- not the same as the yellow two minutes wallet. This is a new version.

Step 1: Gathering Your Materials

1. Paper, anysize

2. Scissors

3. Your hands

Step 2: Hamburger Time!!!

Fold the paper in half the wide way. A.K.A. hamburger fold. Simple right? your almost done!

Step 3: Fold Again...

Fold the creased part of the paper up to the length a little shorter than a credit card. This creates the credit card pocket, and when you folded the paper in half you created the money pocket.

Step 4: Unfold

Unfold the credit card pocket crease. We are now going to cut it so that the bills and cards wont fall out.

Step 5: Cut.... Careful

Cut from the upper crease down to the bottom crease, and then cut out so it makes the credit card pocket smaller than the bill pocket. I suggest you cut like a quarter to a half inch in, and then down. Or you can use a bill, your call. Do it on both sides.

Step 6: Fold and Cut

Fold the credit card pocket back up. I know these steps are annoying but I wanted to make it as descriptive as i could because I always have trouble with instructables. Next cut slits on the bill pocket at the top of the credit card pocket. (Observe the photo, but do it on both sides) By the way my first instructable so please take the time to rate it.

Step 7: Fold the Bill Pocket Inside the Credit Card Pocket.

You want to fold the little pieces that you slit inside of the little pocket that you made when you folded the credit card pocket. it wont come undone unless you pull far back. This part may be hard to realize so I'm going to make a video version of this instructable soon.


Make a bunch of these and sell them. Im sure kids at my school will buy them considering they bought duct tape wallets from me for 5 bucks a piece and considering I made 45 or 50 bucks by doing that. Don't forget to customize your own. Mine has my initials in bubble letters, is orange, and I have a yellow with the same things. Or you cant print out a design and make it with that, just make sure the design is always on the outside! Thanks for reading. My first instructable. Comment if you have any questions and I'll answer them, trust me.

    what do you do with the two waste flaps at the top of the finished wallet, cut them off, fold them somewhere?

    for your question bhappy21, picture two on step 7 I think explains it pretty well. If not, cut the slit slightly shorter than the height of the credit card fold, this slit fits inside of this fold

    question: where are we cutting the slit? how far down/up the pocket?
