    Let’s make a duct tape wallet!


    Almost all creative people--whether professional engineers or people just making and building things at home for fun--got their start with hands-on projects using basic, common materials like tape, paper, glue and cardboard. 

    It’s cheap, fun, and accessible - and making simple physical projects will develop creative skills to help you design and make larger and more complex projects later on.

    If you’re looking for a fun hands-on project, why not make a duct tape wallet? 

    All you need is some duct tape and a pair of scissors. The process involves cutting and laying down strips of duct tape with sticky sides facing together to create folds, flaps and pockets, and measurements are determined simply by placing cash or cards to make sure they'll fit in the shapes you lay out.




    It's a great project, and we think you'll enjoy it! For full instructions, check out the detailed tutorial over on Instructables:
