Intro: Waterproof Paper Wallet
Make your own wallet out of recycled paper! It's completely waterproof and has a coin catching design. It doesn't matter if you spill juice or ketchup on your wallet, you could just simply wipe it and it all goes away! Glazed with a layer of "Clear Acrylic Laquer", the wallet can resist being torn.
If you had trouble finding a cheap and creative holiday gift or giveaway, this is the solution for your problem. It's also a great solution for panic buying! I made tons of these wallets and it barely cost me a penny. The slick and innovative design never ceases to the attract attention of friends. It may attract friends but may not attract snatchers! :D
10 Reasons - Why You Should Make This Wallet:
1st.) Anti-Theft (Less Attraction To Snatchers)
2nd.) Infinite skin designs (ex. Gift Wrapper, MTR Map, World Map, Brochure)
3rd.) Coin catching design (coins don't fall that easily)
4th.) Save the world - Recycle
5th.) Escape mainstream fashion
6th.) Slim Deign
7th.) Light Weight
8th.) Wipe And Clean
9th.) Blends in your office supplies (camo)
10th.) It doesn't tear, wilt or fray that easily (Waterproof)
Step 1: Gathering the Materials
- Clear Lacquer Spay Paint (for waterproofing)
- Yellow Pad Paper (your choice of design)
- Paper Bill (reference for your wallet's size)
- Multipurpose Glue (Elmer's Glue)
- Sharp Pair of Scissors
- 12 inch Rule
Step 2: Fold the Paper - "V Shaped Fold"
Get 2 pieces of yellow pad paper. First, fold it into half then fold the excess paper inwards. You will need two so do the same for the other paper. Use you bill as a reference of your wallet's size.
Step 3: Glue Both Papers
You'll need a long piece of paper to make your wallet, a single piece of yellow pad paper isn't enough. Simply glue them together to achieve the required length.
Step 4: Fold the Extended "V Folds"
Step 5: Glue Both Ends - Form a Loop/ Ring
Use your multipurpose glue to glue both ends together, this will form a loop/ ring. Then glue the lower end of your wallet (middle bill divider).
Use the excess paper for your pockets. Glue them in a "U shape", forming a pouch.
Step 7: Waterproofing the Wallet
Glaze your wallet with a can of "Clear Acrylic Lacquer". The non-gloss works better since the paper's distinct texture remains the same. Be sure to pay particular attention to the gaps, water could sip in if not sprayed properly.
Step 8: You're Done!
I can't wait to give these awesome gifts for Christmas! :D
