  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Cut 8 strips of duct tape (sorry they didn't all fit on my screen). They do not all have to be the same color.

    Step 2

    Make a duct tape sheet by overlapping the strips a little bit. Make it four strips tall.

    Step 3

    Flip it over and do the same thing you did with the first four strips, so there is no sticky sides showing.

    Step 4

    Add strips of duct tape on the long edges. Half should be on the (in this case) blue side and the other on the purple.

    Step 5

    Fold in half longways.

    Step 6

    Tape together,to make a pocket, on the short edges.

    Step 7

    Time for credit card holders. Make a sheet of duct tape (like you did in the beginning) that is slightly taller and longer than your credit card/gift card.

    Step 8

    Tape it on. I like to blend it with the rest of my wallet. This one opens on the side

    Step 9

    Make another pocket if you like. This one I made the same color as my wallet so you can't see it or the other one. This one opens on the top. I like to alternate opening on the top and side.

    Step 10

    My third and final credit card pocket.

    Step 11

    This is a bad picture but this is a sheet of lamination. I like to use this for ID holders. Don't worry if you don't having any just use clear packaging tape and make a sheet like you did the others.

    Step 12

    Tape it on like you did the others. This should open on the side. I put my gift card in to show it. If you use lamination cut it down to the right size. Packaging tape: make the right size pocket.

    Step 13

    You can decorate it with duct tape if you want.

    Step 14

    You might want to add velcro as a fastener. Enjoy your new wallet!
