Step 1: Step 1: Preparation

There are a few things you need to have before you can start...

#1. Any Color Duct Tape (I think it looks cool in brown)

#2. Scissors

#3. 3 Larger Size Index Cards.

And now you are ready!

Step 2: Step 2: the Structure Part 1

First of all you need to decide on a size of wallet you want.

I show you small, but if you wanted to make a larger one just do the same thing except bigger.

If you have decided on small then you need to trim two index cards down to the size you want.

Next you will cover the two index cards with duct tape. (both back and front)

If you went with the big size wallet, then you need to just cover two of the index cards (NO CUTTING)

Step 3: Step 3: the Structure Part 2

After you covered both index cards with duct tape, you then sit them 1 centimeter apart and tape.

Next you press the tape that is in between the two index cards.

Then you need to check if it will open and close.

Then leave it open for the next step.

Step 4: Step 4: the One and Only Pocket

Now you are going to add the pocket inside the wallet.

This is the hardest part.

Now you cut down the third index card to just a bit under the size you have

But if you are making the larger wallet you don't need to cut down the third index card at all.

Now you have to tape on the pocket.

You need to tape up third index card on so the top and left side are able to open freely.

But look! I see some white in there!

Easily fixed.

Just stick some duct tape in there and your good.

Make sure you look at all the pictures! This is important!

Step 5: Step 5: Your Done!

That wasn't that hard was it?

Now you have a great, durable, stylish, wallet and it only took you five simple steps!

Glad you checked this out?

    It's a little different and easier to make if that's what you mean. Also my instructions are a lot easier to follow. You know like a picture for every little step. It's a nice starter wallet, but still in high quality. Hope this helps: wilcurt
