Happy Father's Day crafting!

  1. Dad wallet 2Create duct "fabric" by cutting tape strips (pieces measuring 8" x 3" and an additional 3 1/2" x 2 1/4" pocket piece.) Lay pieces sticky-side-up; overlap & stick. Repeat until piece is appropriate length. Then, layer pieces sticky-side-down on top of existing piece until it's completely covered. Repeat this process to make the back of the wallet.
  2. Seal front and back pieces together with tape strips.
  3. Dad wallet 3Tape card pocket onto the righthand side of the front of the wallet. Fold wallet in half so that the pocket is now on the inside.
  4. Cut several small pieces of contrasting tape; stick onto outside of wallet in "DAD" formation.
