Step 1: Materials

For this project you will need:

1 orange juice or milk carton

1 pair of scissors

1 black marker

1 carton wallet template. download and printout here: milk_carton_wallet_template.pdf

Step 2: Cutting

Pull the flaps at the top open and cut down the two sides so that the long piece contains the base and the pouring neck.

Step 3: ​Marking Out

Using the template line it up with the pouring neck and trace and mark out the lines on the wings as shown.

Step 4: Cutting Out

Cut out the outline that you made earlier. Make sure that the marks made along the wings are still there.

Step 5: Folding

Fold the marks you made on the wings, the folds should lead to the corner on the wing.

Step 6: Finished

To close the wallet fold the bottom flap with the hole over the pouring neck and screw the lid on. To open it unscrew the lid and pull the flap back.

    Awesome! I bet if you taped up the other end of the cap you could store coins in the pouring area and lcose it with the cap.
