An Introduction
Having participated in Odyssey of the Mind and Destination Imagination for many years, I have grown to absolutely adore Duct Tape. You can do sooooo much with it and all it takes is some creativity and ingenuity. Below are a couple projects I've done involving Duct Tape. The first is the Duct Tape Wallet... I created my first Duct Tape Wallet 7 years ago. I am now on my 3rd revision. The Duct Tape hold up very well and my last one lasted for 5 years. If it starts to become worn, you can simply add another piece of Duct Tape. The Duct Tape Wallet tutorial below will show you how to construct a bi-fold Duct Tape Wallet which is the 2nd generation design. Visit this site for a tri-fold wallet. Also for Halloween 2004 I created a Marvin the Martian Halloween costume and have placed the instructions below.

Get Started
Duct Tape Wallet
These instructions will help you create your own duct tape wallet. Feel free to print these instructions and do what you wish. They are great for a classroom activity, arts & craft group, Boy scouts / Girl Scouts, and fund raisers. Duct Tape wallets make great Christmas gifts, Birthday gifts, Father's Day gifts, or can be sold for some quick money.

RFID Protective Wallet
The RFID Blocking Duct Tape Wallet
Worried about the possibility of your drivers license, credit cards, cash, work ID, school ID, etc... broadcasting without your knowledge? Aluminum foil prevents small RFID tags which are embedded in devices from broadcasting. Incorporate foil into your Duct Tape Wallet for an added layer of security.

Marvin the Martian Halloween Costume
This Marvin the Martian Halloween costume was created from primarily foam and Green Duct Tape. It took myself 4 hours to put together. A few other handy things around the house that proved useful: plastic bags, scissors, paper plates, etc...
