Oooh! Please post a tutorial! Those wallets are so cool. I've been looking for a wallet that's not too big and looks good. These look perfect!

I wanted to make this too, so after a little searching I came up with this

http://leewm.freeshell.org/origami/

The pattern/instructions are at http://leewm.freeshell.org/origami/wallet.pdf but I am putting the other link too in case you guys have slow connections, and would like to see a picture of the finished pattern before opening the pdf file. 

If you scroll down [on the top link!!] about 3/4 of the way, there will be a picture of the finished wallet.


It may not be it, but it seems close...

funnily enough, there is mention of tyvek :]

I tried this one last night and apparently I'm too stupid to do it right? I couldn't get it to work. It's confusing because of the paper flipping and where the numbers are positioned -- if someone who does origami could explain, that'd be great.

I want a tut if one gets PMed around, please. XD

I didn't try it, but I will right now.  Forgot that I just got a printer, woo!  (only exciting cos it's a printer/scanner/copier combo)

Anyhow, if it works out, I'll let you cats know.

I tried it and it didn't work for me either. I just changed a few of the folds and it turned out okay. Just fiddle around with it a bit and you might figure it out.

OK I gots it.  The number positioning was just bad, so let's do this:

Definitions:
1. a mountain fold is when you fold a piece of paper, and the fold comes towards you - in the simplest sense, it creates a simple mountain.  like looking at an open card from the outside, if it is standing up like a tent, that is a mountain fold.
2. a valley fold is the opposite, it creates a "valley" in the paper when you are looking down at it.  as if you were looking at the INSIDE of an open card.  got it?
3. every fold you make for now will be for establishing good creases.  this is optional, but it makes things easier in the end.  so after creasing, unfold the paper to a flat state.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Directions:

1.  Mountain fold down the center, lengthwise, top to bottom.  [hint: If you had printed out the diagram, all the writing would be visible on the outside of the tent that this mountain fold creates.]  uncrease.
2.  Valley fold the first horizontal line, you're bringing the top edge of the paper down to meet the rest of it.  well, as far as the fold goes.  uncrease.
3.  Mountain fold the second line.  uncrease.
4.  Valley fold the third horizontal line, uncrease, then do the same to the fourth and last line, uncrease.  If it gets rough at the bottom, you can start folding the bottom edge of the page up to meet the rest of the paper.  As long as you are still doing valley folds [where demarcated]
5.  [OK.  You should have a dilapidated fan now].  Valley fold the two vertical edges, the lines that are about 3/4 of the way on the long sides of the paper. uncrease.  You're done!

Assembly:

1.  Fold down at first horizontal line, following your old crease, that should be a valley fold.  LEAVE FOLDED.
2.  Then fold away from you, the second line, that should be a mountain fold.  Should be like starting a paper fan.  Leave folded.
3.  Now valley fold the sides towards you, the thin edges that are about 3/4 inch wide.  You're folding these towards the middle of the page.
4.  Make another valley fold, you can fold that whole mess down towards the remnants of the page.  Looking like a wallet now. 
5.  Fold the last part up.  It's loose now, but at the sides, you'll see where you can tuck in the top inside part of the wallet into the little folds.  you want those tucked into the little folds or else the wallet won't have a bottom..

Oh yes, valley fold the middle, and you have your closed wallet.

Sorry so long-winded, I'm weird about being specific...

I just saw that the original poster decided to link to tutorials....

Now I hope these wallets are different, I just spent a bajillion years figuring out how to explain those directions!

LOL

Well, no matter what, we have origami wallets now!
