Step 1: Materials
For this you will need:
550 Paracord at least 25 feet-any color
knife or other cutting tool
pencil or pen
Step 2: Start Planning
now you will need a piece of paper or a notebook
now take a ruler and put the paper horizontal (like a hot dog)and now make a line that is goes all the way up the paper about 3-4 inches from one side
than measure 8-9 inches from that line you just made to the other side of the paper. now make a line there going all the way up the paper
( sorry about my paper. i didn't do that exactly and i paid the price- it isn't all even)
Step 3: Starting the Wallet
now tape down one end of the cord to the paper on one of the lines you made
than pull it to the other line and tape it down there
than go back and tape it down.
than repeat and repeat and repeat untill you get about 35-40( i would say about 40-i only did 31 and it is really short)
after done with that cut the paracord and melt it down
Step 4: Makeing the Form Stay
now take the the 35-40 strands on the paper and put tape up and down it untill you get close the the taped ends than tape the tape off the ends slowly and carefully to not mess it up. than put more tape close to the ends when done with that than do that to the other side
Step 5: Finishing Up
now fold it in half with the tape on the outside.
now tape down the 2 side edges together leaving the top open.
really tape up the edges
now you are done.
it isn't the best wallet and it didn't turn out the way i thought it would
Step 6: How to Use in a Emergency
just flip it inside out and the paracord falls right out and you have about 20-30 feet of cord.
acually i did this thinking the paracord would stay stuck to the tape and make a cool looking wallet
i am thinking about making a better one that is woven or something like that
