Duck Tape Wallet

Step 1

Make a Duck tape sheet that is 7 inches long by four strips wide: – Cut a strip of Duck Tape® that measures 7 inches and lay it sticky side up on your work surface. – Roll out and cut another strip of Duck Tape® to the same length. – Place the second 7-inch strip sticky side up so it slightly overlaps the edge of the first strip. – Repeat until you have four strips overlapping. – Turn the sheet so the strips run vertically. – Cut a strip to lay across the sticky-side-up strips. Start at the top and work your way down. These strips get placed sticky side down. Add another strip below the last one. Remember to overlap the edges. – Continue laying strips sticky side down until all of the sticky sides of the “bottom” strips are covered. – Trim off edges.

Fold the wallet in half so the short sides line up. NB: Do this before taping the other side so that the wallet will fold without bulges.

Step 6

To make the pockets, cut 2  x 4 inch pieces of Duck Tape® and stick them together, sticky side to sticky side,  making a Duck Tape® sheet. NB: Make sure you leave about ¼ inch of the sticky side of the tape exposed so it can stick to the wallet.

Step 8

Cut one piece of Duck Tape® the same size as the piece that you used to seal the edges of the wallet. Place the piece of Duck Tape® over the edge of the packet and wrap it around, like in step 3, to seal the edges. NB: Slip the sides of the credit card pockets where the tape seals the edges to fit credit cards.
