Juice pouches. Eureka!
Yes, they're so thick and sturdy and I bet those silvery freezerbags you can get at the supermarket are the same material. I have a policy of using only discarded materials, but I think I can get my hands on some of (whatever that is).
I'm too lazy to pull apart the wallet I made last year from 2 mylar cookie bags (Matt's REAL oatmeal raisin), but I can tell you it involves some slot and tab action.
Besides, there are SO many wallet styles. How many creditcard pockets do you want? how many folds? do you like a pocket on the outside for your DL or LIBcard?
Also, having made two mylar wallets I can say that it's sturdier when it's all one piece. Juice pouches are barely big enuf for a credit card holder, or do they come in big sizes now? (12/30/2004)
Um....I don't know how to make those, but you can find how to make a juice bag tote at:
Hope this helps!
