I finished this wallet up today, made out of two Coke soda cans, red duct tape, and some clear vinyl (from a shower curtain Cheesy).



Let me know what you think!

That's so creative! But doesn't the metal break over time after bending so much?

Hey guys, thanks so much for all your great comments! I've actually been toting my "prototype Sprite" one around for about 2 weeks now, and the metal isn't giving any signs of wear. There are actually strips of sewn-on red duct tape underneath the vinyl where the metal bends, so I'm pretty sure it would hide any marks.
