“Easy DIY Duck Tape® Wallets”

This post brought to you by Duck Brand. All opinions are 100% mine.

Duck Tape® is extremely useful and can really come in hand for a multitude of situations. Not only is it great to have around, but it’s a wonderful thing to make some really cool crafts with. Why not start out spring with a fun and easy craft that can please everyone! The Duck Tape® wallet is a classic craft, that is super easy, functional and a lot of fun for kids and adults both. My husband has used this wallet when we have gone out to the beach, so he doesn’t get his leather one sandy. It is durable enough for daily use and pretty cool looking. My six year old daughter made her wallet (the trifold) all by herself after watching my husband make the bifold. You can use as many different color combinations as there are tapes, and its easy for your children to personalize them any way they like. If you aren’t comfortable with your kids using scissors, Duck Tape® is easy to tear, so really all you need is a ruler, the tape and about 10 minutes. We had a lot of fun making this project, and hope to see that some of you will also enjoy making one. Here is how we did it:

For the bifold:

one

two

Cut or tear two pieces of Duck Tape® 9 inches long, placing them stick side up.

three

Cut or tear two more pieces of 9 inch long Duck Tape®, and place them over top of the other pieces, sticky side down.

four

Trim any overlapping edges. (this usually makes a 7 inch long wallet)

five

Repeat steps one through three, then when trimming the edges, cut about a half inch off of the top. This will make the dollar pocket.

Line up the two pieces of Duck Tape® so that they are flush on the bottom, with the shorter piece facing you.

Use smaller pieces, or a thinner Duck Tape® to trim out all the edges. Put the tape halfway over the edges, fold over and trim.

Fold entire wallet in half.

Repeat steps 1-3 again, but this time after trimming, cut your pieces to the size of business cards. Use a card for a template.

six

seven

Attach with smaller tape to match trim.

eight

Add as many or as few card holders as you would like.

For the trifold:
