About: Just a girl who spends her days crafting! I love creating new things out of duct tape, clay, or anything that can be made into something new!

An easy DIY for any book lover!

~Supplies~

~ Book Pages (5 by 7 1/2 inches)

~Clear Packing Tape

~X-acto knife

~Cutting Board

Step 1:

Start by making the strips that you are going to weave. The dimensioned I used are 3/4 inch by 5 inches.

Step 2:

Next, I folded the strip in half, then placed it on the clear packing tape. I then folded the tape around the edges of the strip. By doing this, the wallet will become more durable and will be water resistance. Next, I taped 2 strips together creating a 90 degree angle.

Step 3:

Start weaving by taping one set onto the cutting board. Tape the other sets next to each other. After doing this, weave the overlapping strips together.

Step 4:

After you finish weaving, clear tape one of the sides. Then trim down the sides so it becomes 8 by 3 inches. I then went ahead and added trim. I cut a strip that was 7.5 by 3/4 inches. I folded it in half and taped it to the edge.

Step 5:

I cut to sheets that are 7.5 by 3 inches. I taped the two together creating a sheet that is 8 inches long.

Step 6:

Next I made the pockets. I cut strips that were 7 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches. I covered one side in tape and used that to attach it do the wallet.

Step 7:

Next, I started to attach the two sides of the wallet together. I cut strips that were 3/4 inch wide,then covered one side in packing tape. I left a 1/4 inch trim around the edge. Use this to attach it to the wallet.
