What do you give an 11 year old who “has everything”, and has interest in duct tape? And maybe even quoted someone by saying “if you can’t fix it with duct tape, it ain’t worth buying.”
The idea is clear: Duct tape wallet – it’s cool, most likely his friends doesn’t have one. It’s homemade, and therefor unique. Also, it’s a useful “toy.” That said, I wouldn’t spend too much time on it, as it may only bee cool for X months.. ;)
Got the tools ready! Also note the vinyl flooring, which made a good “work bench” for this task..
Searching the net for a simple How to for a simple wallet, I found this: wikihow.com/Make-a-Duct-Tape-Wallet. The wallet is very simple, maybe even too simple: room for bills, two cards and a picture. But since the kids in Norway may start using debit cards at the age of eight (8), I didn’t give it a second thought.
Had an old wallet which I used one of the picture frames. A square piece of see through plastic.
While putting it all together, measuring and cutting the duct tape I couldn’t help to think what an extra touch it would be to have a snap fastener. Just like my old, black wallet has.
Velco would probably be the easiest to use, but I had none. I looked at the old wallet again. Those snap buttons, you can’t just rip them off and reuse them without the right tools. Besides.. A duct tape wallet needs a different look..
Taking the cable connection for 9v batteries, cutting it in half – there’s a snap connection!
Duct tape wallet present ready. :)
