It's a manly duct tape wallet.
For the duct tape challenge a while back I made a girly pink and grey clutch-like wallet. I decided to make a "manly" bifold wallet. Here's what I ended up coming up with:


In the picture it looks like more of a light blue but it's actually more of a teal color. Smiley

This is amazing!   My sizzling bacon wallet is pretty much dead and it now seems like a mustache wallet is next!

I love that! Is there a particular tutorial you used, or did you just come up with it yourself? I'm hoping to make one as a Christmas present.

Yeah the teal color (in my mind) makes it look much better. Thank You! Smiley

I didn't use a tutorial. For the most part, I'm pretty good at just figuring stuff out on my own (even if sometimes the way I end up make it over complicates it.) and I've made a few of the duct tape wallets over the past couple years. This is the first wallet I've made with a picture on it though and the cut out mustache was pretty difficult for me. I made a thick multiple layer cut out of the mustache with regular silver tape and stuck it to the sticky side of the black tape. Being that the multi-layer piece was made of duct tape, it was easy to just peel it away from the black once I cut out the mustache shape.
^Did that make sense?

Love it! Smiley Glad I could help you figure out how to embellish it. I love the green (or as my niece would say, Gweem).

My boyfriend is now using this wallet and we've encountered a pretty bad problem. . . the cards stick in the card slots, like bad. And the edges of the pieces of tape have some yuckky residue. I may have to re-think my process of making the wallets to make them not mess up like this one did. Maybe a similar process to my first Duct Tape Wallet (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=392459.msg4650238#msg4650238). That one is very durable.

My wallet is holding up pretty nicely. The cards dont stick in it, I never made a duck tape wallet before and I only saw a site with a tutorial for a simple 4-card slot wallet, and I wanted more slots (6-8) so I figured out how to make 6 cards fit and Im pretty pleased with the way it came out. Its not big, its compact and hold my cards (yay!)
