Paper Day, Part 4: Fold a Paper Wallet

Guess what I learned today?!All you need to make a functional and effective DIY wallet is a single piece of 8.5 x 11″ paper. It’s super thin, making it awesome for travel, a place to keep back up info (stuff like your ID, health insurance info, etc, for a bike ride, say…), or an ID and a credit card for a night out.

Minimal cutting, and only one piece of tape.
