Introduction: RFID Proof Soda Can Wallet

This is a response to dogsrcool2me's 'RFID Secure Wallet.' It's the same concept, except it's made out of two soda cans and some packaging tape. And it's very sloppy. In fact, I'm quite ashamed of my sloppiness.

I would suggest using duct tape, but I didn't have any around. So, here we go.

You'll need:
hobby knives/scissors
2 soda cans
packing tape/duct tape
felt tip pen
sand paper

Step 1: Step One

Get a hold of two cans of soda. Either dump them out or give one to your very close, anonymous anarchist friend.

Step 2: Step Two

Cut the cans so that you have two nice strips of aluminum. sand down both sides of the aluminum and flatten them down if you can(I tried. All I did was put them under a big book. It didn't work.)

Cut those two pieces of aluminum in half.

Remember to recycle!

Step 3: Step Three

Wrap your tape around the pieces of aluminum individually, then bind the four pieces of aluminum together into pairs. After that, tape those pieces together so that you have something that resembles a wallet.

Step 4: Step Four

Now, put your RFID card in there and put it up to a RFID scanner and see if it works.
I would appreciate it if someone who has an RFID card an scanner tries this.
Again, sorry about how sloppy this is. I hope it gave everyone a good idea of what I'm thinking.

    why not just cut a bill sized piece of can and slip it on the outermost part of my wallet where bills go....?

    I like the concept! I'd make a few tweaks however... For example using the aluminum with folded and pressed edges with fabric perhaps? Or even as other comments suggested; Duct Tape.

    just have to say that you are evil wasting orange soda Evil evil but the wallet is cool thumbs down on the soda but thumbs up on the wallet

    I second that. There are only 2 "Don'ts" in this universe. 1) You never throw a bong kid 2) God help whoever wastes Orange or Grape soda. You've got the beginning of a great idea tho, keep up the good work =)

    Use metal hinges soldered to the can, found at your local hardware store A.K.A Carpenters, DIYers and alike Heaven.
    Then fold the bottom part a bit so that it gets FIRM and STURDY.

    i found using scissors is alot easier
