Step 1: What Youll Need.

Sorry i don't have any pics!

1.Clear packaging tape

2.Playing cards duh:-)

3 . Scisors or something to cut tape with

Step 2: How You Make It

1) Find three playing cards you like. Lay them about 1/4 inch apart side-by-side with the faces towards you.

2) Tape the three cards together with clear packing tape.

3) Repeat this process to make another set of three playing cards.

4) Lay the two sets of cards beside each other (so that the cards make a 3 x 2 rectangle) with the faces towards you.

5) Connect the two pieces with clear packing tape.

6) Turn the cards over, and cover any sticky parts with tape (sticky part to sticky part).

7) Turn the cards over again, and fold the cards toward each other, so that the faces are pointing outwards.

8) Tape the two shorts sides together.

9) Three of the four sides should now be joined together. Your wallet is now complete, put your money in, fold it up, and put it in your pocket.

Im not sure how to make pockets so your on your own there bcuse im only 11

    For an 11 year old kid this is great! Even if it has been done before, it's good to see little DIYers getting involved. Keep up the good work kid.

    lol i did this a long time ago and i made it with an ID pocket. all you have to do is use a razorblade and cut out the design(from the back of the card, leaving the white border only) then you just wrap it in clear tape so the whole gap is covered on both sides. then just tape onto the wallet.
