Project: Duct-tape wallet

Posted by llemarie on August 7, 2007

This is an old entry but seeing as how I’m still using this wallet a year later, I think it’s fair that I should post about it.

Inspired by Bre Pettis in his Weekend Project, I set off to make my own wallet entirely out of Scotch. While the end result looked strangely similar to the one Bre presented, I followed his instructions only loosely. I started off following closely, but quickly found out that it wasn’t as simple as it looked and that I could take some shortcuts. Not all the shortcuts were wise, but it turned out ok in the end.
