I Made A Paper Wallet
Tried making a paper wallet based on instruction from Instructables. It was rather cool and I was mighty please with the result. I had to do it twice because I wasn’t satisfied with the first result. The folds did not align properly. The second try was better. I was more careful the second time.
I used a normal A4 paper. It was actually a photocopy of Rizou’s draft comic which was passed to me for me to add in the letterings. (Hope Rizou doesn’t mind.) Reasons why I used it:
- It’s a good representation of my interest in drawing comics
- I’m reusing old paper which will end up in the dustbin anyway. Save the earth!
- It’s handy (right on my desk) 😛
The post said that the wallet is durable, so I’ll test it out and see how long it lasted. It could hold 2-4 credit-sized cards easily and a few dollar bills. But I found the $50 note was a bit big and the top edge kept sticking out but $2-$10 notes fitted inside comfortably. One big drawback was that there was no pocket for coins, so I still have to bring my usual wallet (which had a big coins pocket and is thick) around as well. But this wallet will do well enough for traveling and times when I don’t need coins.
