How to make a paper wallet?

A handmade wallet made of paper will serve as an excellent place to store banknotes, cards and business cards. Such a product can also be used as an original envelope for gift money. Consider a few ways to fold a wallet out of paper.

Wallet with two pockets and a flap

This is the easiest method to make a paper wallet.

We need an A4 sheet. You can use colored paper or beautiful wrapping paper (only thick, so that the product does not fall apart).

  1. Fold the sheet in half horizontally and vertically, iron the bends, and then unfold.
  2. The edges are bent to the center on both sides (to the fold line in length, as in the case when we make an airplane).
  3. The corners of the resulting triangles add to the bases.
  4. Bend the upper edge to the middle line. Do the same with the bottom edge.
  5. Fold the triangles on each side so that a diamond is formed on the reverse side. Fold the blank along the fold (away from you).
  6. We have a wallet with two pockets. Inside each section there is a triangle. We take it out from one pocket - this is the valve of our wallet.

Coin Purse

For such a small but roomy wallet, we need a square sheet of thick paper (a square with a side of 15x15).

  1. Fold the sheet in half. For convenience, it is better to arrange the workpiece horizontally.
  2. We divide it into three equal parts. To do this, we retreat 5 cm from the left and right sides of the resulting rectangle and make bends in this place. Then unfold.Purse
  3. Finger lift the lower right corner so that the right side is bent to the left and get an isosceles triangle. Do the same with the bottom left corner.
  4. We turn the workpiece.
  5. Fold back to the edge (first right and then left side).
  6. We got a rectangular shape. Fold the upper left corner (only on one layer of paper).
  7. Drop down the entire upper part of the figure (one layer).
  8. The right corner is wrapped around the triangle (inside) for the reliability of the design.
  9. Turning the figure over and repeating the same actions (paragraph 6-8).

It turned out a wallet with a convenient pocket for coins.

With the help of embossed paper (under the skin), threads and buttons you can make an elegant wallet - you just need to cut out the individual parts and sew them together by attaching the button-fastener to the flap. You can decorate such a wallet with a pattern or an inscription made with special ink.
