Create a Wallet from a Single Sheet of Paper [Paper Craft]

If you’re looking for an ultra-minimalist wallet this single-sheet-as-wallet paper folding trick should do the trick.

Instructables user Hunter Frerich shares a simple tutorial demonstrating how you can fold a standard piece of printer paper into a lightweight and minimal paper wallet. The results are impressive and, according to him and the commentors on the tutorial, quite durable. If you’re looking for something with the thinness and lightness of the paper wallet with a bit more durability, you may want to check out the incredibly light All-ett (I’ve had one for years and it is my favorite wallet by far).

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Used to carry a paper wallet like this one:, but I’ve found it much simpler to just fold my cash around my cards and hold everything together with a rubber band from a bunch of broccoli.
