WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE A DUCT-TAPE WALLET
- Duct tape
- Scissors or utility knife
WHAT YOU’LL DO TO MAKE A DUCT-TAPE WALLET
Step 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.
Step 2: Carefully stick the adhesive sides of the two duct-tape sheets together.
Step 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.
Step 4: Fold and adhere the 1″ duct-tape strips to the 10″ ends of the sheet. This will make a smooth, clean finished edge.
Step 5: Using the scissors or utility knife, trim the sheet to 9″ wide.
Step 6: Fold the sheet in half.
Step 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.
Step 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.
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 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!
