this will show you how to make a small pocket to attach to your phone, wallet etc for things like loose change and credit cards. It's very useful, very easy, and only uses household items.
Step 1: Materials Needed
Step 2: Cut the Paper
Use your scissors to cut the paper twice the size of what you want your pocket to be, and fold it in half. Mine is ripped out of a small notebook.
Step 3: The Middle Stripe
Cut a long strip of duct tape and put ii down the middle of your paper. Try to get it as straight as possible.
Step 4: The Side Stripes
Cut another long piece of duct tape of the same length. Cut it down the middle. Place them on each side of the first strip.
Step 5: Folding
fold bottom tab of duct tape up so it covers about half of the paper. Then fold the paper in half. Turn the paper over, and do the same thing again. Fold in half so it resembles a small folder.
Step 6: Taping the Sides and Attaching It.
cut small strips of tape and place them on each side of one of the sides of the folder. Fold the folder and take the sides together. Then take two longer pieces and attach them to each side. These are for attaching the pocket to your wallet, phone, etc.
Step 7: ( Optional ) Tab
if you would like a lid or flap that goes over the pocket to keep things from falling out, flip your pocket over and attach a piece of duct tape to the back so half of it is on the back of the pocket, and half hangs over. Fold the tape corners so it has a pointed triangle at the end. Fasten the tab over.
Step 8: Happy Dance!!!!!! :-)
You're done! Feel free to dance, pat yourself on the back, out just brag to all your friends.
