How to Make a Duct Tape Wallet

Duct tape comes in 2-inch-wide rolls and is available in many colors. Here’s how to use some to make this handy duct-tape wallet that will last for years.



  • Duct tape
  • Ruler
  • Scissors or utility knife
  • Pencil


step1Step 1: Cut or tear four strips of duct tape, 10″ long. With the adhesive side up, adhere the duct-tape 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.

step2Step 2: Carefully stick the adhesive sides of the two duct-tape sheets together.

step3Step 3: Cut or tear a 10″ strip of duct tape. Use a utility knife or scissors to make a small cut in the center of one end of the duct tape. This will help you tear the strip into two straight 1″ strips.

step4Step 4: Fold and adhere the 1″ duct-tape strips to the 10″ ends of the sheet. This will make a smooth, clean finished edge.

step5Step 5: Using the scissors or utility knife, trim the sheet to 9″ wide.

step6Step 6: Fold the sheet in half.

step7Step 7: Tear two 1″ x 4″ duct-tape strips using the process in Step 3. Fold and adhere the ends of the duct-tape wallet together. Trim the 4″ strips flush.

step8Step 8: To make a pocket for your duct-tape wallet, cut two strips of tape 5″ long and stick the two pieces (adhesive sides) together.

step9Step 9: Fold and adhere a 1″ strip onto the 5″ edge. Trim the pocket to 4″ long.

step10Step 10: Using 1/2″ strips of duct tape, stick the pocket in place. Trim the strips flush.

And that’s how to make a duct-tape wallet! Your duct-tape wallet is complete!

    Great! Worked out well for me. I get paid, like, $5/wallet

  5. it is hard at first due to the stickiness, but gets easier as you go. I made one for the first time and I did it by myself in about 25 minutes at age 12.
