I am so glad I found this today! I've been trying to figure out how to make a wallet with some images and vinyl, but just couldn't come up with a simple way to put it together and have it look like I want. This is a great tutorial, and awesome wallets!

ooh, I love that one Barbalot! I posted one quite a ways back I think that I made out of a mini movie poster for a Harry Potter loving friend! I found a ton of random Harry Potter stuff on ebay and they made great wallets!

I made these a couple days ago. Instead of snaps I used velcro since I prefer velcro on wallets. The smaller one uses a piece of origami paper and is a bit under 4 inches high. The larger is a manga page (from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle to be exact) and about 4.5 in. I used pieces from a file folder for the inside, with the folder fold as the center fold to keep the score lines that are near it, so the wallets expand when I stuff them full of things. Sorry the picture isn't all that great.



Thanks for the tutorial!

First off, this is really great.

Also, does anyone know what the pic of the man and the deer is from in the second picture? It reminds me so much of the Decemberists new cd, Hazards of Love, and I'd love to find out if I could get that image somewhere.

The man and deer picture is from a book I found at the thrift store -- "The Tracker,"  or just "Tracker,"  I can't remember.  You can use CD inserts and artwork for these wallets... any media, really, as long as it's the right dimensions.

Thanks for the tutorial!


Oh, good idea with the velcro!
I went out and bought the vinyl today so I could make one of these, but I forgot the snaps.  I do have velcro though, so that will work.  Thanks!
