WHAT YOU’LL NEED
WHAT YOU’LL DO
Step 1: Cut or tear four strips of duct tape, 10″ long. With the adhesive side up, adhere the strips one to another with a 1/4″ overlap. You now have a sheet of duct tape 10″ by about 7″. Make a second sheet.
Step 2: Carefully stick the adhesive sides of the two sheets together.
Step 3: Cut or tear a 10″ strip of tape. Use a utility knife or scissors to make a small cut in the center of one end of the tape. This will help you tear the strip into two straight 1″ strips.
Step 4: Fold and adhere the 1″ strips to the 10″ ends of the sheet. This will make a smooth, clean finished edge.
Step 5: Using the scissors or utility knife, trip the sheet to 9″ wide.
Step 6: Fold the sheet in half.
Step 7: Tear two 1″ x 4″ strips using the process in Step 3. Fold and adhere the ends of the wallet together. Trim the 4″ strips flush.
Step 8: To make a pocket, cut two strips of tape 5″ long and stick the two pieces (adhesive sides) together.
Step 9: Fold and adhere a 1″ strip onto the 5″ edge. Trim the pocket to 4″ long.
Step 10: Using 1/2″ strips of tape, stick the pocket in place. Trim the strips flush.
Your duct-tape wallet is complete!
