They are known for its durability, elegance and functionality and you can envy other with this wallet that no others would probably have with them. Here are some easy tips that will help in making an amazing duct tape wallet.

In order to make them, you will first require some strips of duct tapes that have to be cut into a length of 8 inches. Start with the process by laying the first strip horizontally in such a way that the sticky side remains upwards. In the same way, take another strip and then lay them in such a way that the sticky side is laid downwards on the exposed sticky half of the duct tape. By folding the top strip over, create an edge with the tape. In this manner, you should continue adding all the remaining strips in such a way that it becomes 8 1/2-inches wide finally. With the last piece of the tape, you should fold and then create edged on the bottom as you did earlier. On creating a bottom edge, some of the measurement will be lost.

You should now start trimming the edges of the tape so that the length of the wallet reaches 7 inches. Now start folding the wallet in half from top to the bottom. By putting a piece of duct tape along the sides, you should trim down the excess tape such that you can create the pockets for holding cash and bills in the wallet. Now is to create the pockets for credit cards. For this, you should create a rectangle with the duct tape in a dimension with a width of 4 inches that becomes 3 1/2-inches after trimming off the excess tape. Create four sheets in this way and then fold each of them in 1/8-inch and put the sheet with 1/4-inch from edges and 1/8-inch from the top on the left side. Create a crease in the middle of the wallet by folding it and laying a book in the middle.
