Duct Tape Wallet
Another duct tape gift, but duct tape and Dads just seem to go together.
I did this project for Father's Day one year. What I found out was that this wallet is actually too hard for daycare aged children to make. But I made the wallets and let the kids help with the items I placed inside. They had fun helping in this way and then their dads gave them the wallets to play with after Father's Day and they loved them!
- Duct Tape, various colors
- Sharp scissors (Duct tape is difficult to cut.)
- Report cover
Cut eight 10-inch strips of duct tape. Lay one strip, sticky site up on your work surface. Place a second strip, sticky-side down, halfway down on top of the first strip. Fold down the top of the first strip over the second strip, then turn over the strips.
Place another strip of tape to the second strip, sticky sides together and then flip over the strips again. Continue building this duct tape sheet until it is six inches long, then fold up the bottom edge of the last strip.
Trim the duct tape sheet to measure 9" by 6".
Fold the sheet in half and crease the fold. Use strips of duct tape to bind the sides of the wallet together.
Repeat these steps to create another duct tape sheet. You then need to cut four 4" x 2" rectangles from this sheet, keeping the outer folded edge of your sheet as one side of each rectangle.
Set one rectangle aside. Stack the other three rectangles together, folded edges at the top, placing each one 1/4 inch lower than the one beneath it. Tape these pieces in place on the left half of the wallet, 1/4 inch in from the edge and 1/4 inch from the top of the wallet. Tape the fourth duct tape rectangle to the right half of the wallet, securing the bottom and sides in place accordingly.
To add a photo or ID holder, cut a 4" x 2" rectangle from a clear plastic report cover. Place the plastic rectangle over the duct tape rectangle on the right side and tape it in place, leaving the top open.
Your wallet is finished!
