In this instructable, I will show you how to make a paper wallet.
Step 1: Step 1
Take your paper and fold it in half, short side to short side.
Now unfold it and fold each side into the middle, as shown on the pictures.
Step 2: Step 2
Step 2, fold down the center crease.
Turn the paper 90 degrees and fold it in half short side to short side.
Step 3: Step 3
Now you need to cut 2 cm into the crease where I've marked the paper with green pen. This makes the flaps which will secure the wallet later. .
Then fold it in half long side to long side in preparation for the next step.
Step 4: Step 4
Cut out the shape drawn on the picture, this must come out of the 2nd one from the left.
Make sure you leave 1cm either side of it as this will make the card holder later.
Step 5: Step 5
Open the paper out and fold the flaps that are in line with the card hole you just cut.
Now fold the bottom flaps as shown on the second picture.
Leaving the flaps folded in flat, fold each side of the paper in to the middle just like we did earlier and fold along the center crease.
Step 6: Step 6
Now fold it in half to form the wallet shape we made earlier.
At this point, we need to trim the corners off the flaps, as shown in the second picture.
Step 7: Step 7
Now, the final step.
The flap on the inside of the wallet needs to fold into the pocket behind it. If you look at the first picture, the flap under my thumb needs to go in the pocket that my finger is in.
Now the flap in the outside needs to go in the inside pocket, shown on the second picture (apologies for the picture, but it's tricky to get a good picture of it.)
Now repeat this for the other end.
Step 8: Step 8
There you go, that should be your paper wallet made.
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed making this.
