So I had this big ol' book called "Man's Religions" and I came across the most wonderful pictures in the Hinduism section.  So, I produced this wallet (Caveat-it's kinda poorly made but it totally works):

The Front, folded:



The Front, unfolded, left side:



Inside, opened all the way:



Card Pockets:



Fuzzy detail, inside image (this isn't Kali):




The biggest problem I had was keeping the inside from folding and crinkling (which I failed at....) But it's completely waterproof (Yes, I'm a gutterpuck and used packing tape) and it has a large capacity.  The writing is text from the Mahabharta.  It's all just taped up pages from my religions book.  And yes, it opens at the top for bills.

I've always loved that Kali representation, it's classic Smiley

Great wallet, looks awesome.
