How to Make a Wallet
In order to make a wallet you need to follow the following steps:
- Chip out a cool strip and place it with its sticky side up on a flat surface.
- Cut a second one of equal length and place it sticky side down covering half of the first.
- Fold the sticky side of the first over the second.
- Flip them over to place a third strip sticky side down to cover sticky part of second strip.
- Continue the process of sticking and extending the width until it is 7 inches.
- Then fold the last sticky edge over to make a rectangle.
- Eventually fold the rectangle in half and tape its two sides to create a large pocket.
Creating a flower is easy.
- Cut a square shaped piece.
- Fold its right corner down toward the bottom left leaving about a quarter inch to the sticky side.
- Fold the left corner down flush with the other.
- It takes up the form of a petal. Make seven others.
- Keep wrapping these petals around a stick with their pointy sides up so as to give a rose like appearance.
- Cover the rest of the stick with a different colored tape preferable green.
This can be made by making fabric panels and overlapping strips. Come up with a pattern and keep adding strips to give a complete dress like appearance.
A bow can be made by taking out two strips, folding them in half, cutting a notch and folding the center in accordion style. You can use a bobby pin to rivet it.
Take two lengths of tape and fasten their ends with another tape or Velcro.
Get a fabric for your bag. Tape the insides of it. Create a bag handle and take it out. Remove excess tape.
