How to Make a Duct Tape Wallet (EASY)

Begin by cutting off the bottom 3.5 inches from the catalog envelope. This is what you will use to cover with the duct tape and create your wallet. Next, use scissors to trim the side of the envelope down so that the envelope piece measures 3.5 inches by 8 inches. Trim another one inch across the top layer as shown in the photo above.

Tip — Work on a non-stick mat, like this one. To speed things up, cut several 10 inch pieces of duct tape ahead of time.

Once the envelope is cut to the proper size, begin layering the duct tape on top of the envelope. Use scissors with non-stick blades to trim the duct tape as you go. Be sure to seal the sides completely, and leave the top open, creating a pocket for dollar bills to be stored.

Insert a few dollars into your new wallet, fold it in half, and you are done!
