Intro: Wallet

This a wallet that is made out of paper I use one everyday and it is very durable if you cover it with sticky back plastic with is sticky plastic that is used to cover books. I would recommend doing this on a flat and smooth surface with 2 people to avoid getting air bubbles.

Step 1: Material

Gather your material I am using a map because it looks good and the sheet is just bigger than A3 so I could not print out a custom design.

Step 2: Ironing the Map

Use an iron to iron the map to eliminate the creases and so that it is flat.

Step 3: Covering the Wallet

If you are going to cover the wallet with sticky back plastic now is the time to do this. I would suggest doing this as it makes it much more durable and I have been using my one for meany years now.

Step 4: Cutting the Map

Lay down the map on to your work surface and mark out the shape I have previously made a template because I use to sell them I would suggest doing this because you may need to tweak the shape. When you have marked out the shape cut it out using a knife and ruler or large pair of sisers it dose not need to be perfect.

Step 5: Folding Step 1

Position the wallet like I have and fold along the line shown.

Step 6: Folding Step 2

Now fold the two corners on like in the photos.

Step 7: Folding Step 3

fold it over again like in the first folding step (step 5). and the turn over the wallet.

Step 8: Folding Step 4

bring in of the edges in until the slope stops and fold there. repeat this in the other side.

Step 9: Folding Step 5

get a card and place it behind the slope this is a guide to tell you where to fold the rest of the slope behind leave a couple of mm to you can fit more than one card in and easily get them out. repeat this in the other side.

Step 10: Folding Step 6

turn over the wallet and fold the top part into the back of the wallet and flatten the wallet out. You are now done.

    That is really cool. And if you are ever lost and need a map, you might be able to use it to find something.
