Juice Pouch Tri-Fold Wallet

Here are instructions for making a tri-fold wallet out of Kool-Aid Jammer or Capri Sun juice pouches.

Materials:

  • 5 empty Capri Sun juice pouches
  • X-Acto knife
  • sewing machine
  • thread

Instructions:

If you can't wait to drink the Capri Suns (or Kool-Aid Jammers) before making this craft you can always empty the pouches into another container and drink it later. One word of caution, the juice seems to taste better when you drink it out of the pouch with the cool little straw that is provided.

Once you have some empty juice pouches cut a slit in the bottom of each juice pouch with an X-Acto.

Clean the inside of each pouch with hot soapy water and let dry.

Using the X-Acto knife cut the back silver part of the Capri Sun off of the front, leave the seam attached to the front for stability. Discard the back silver part of the pouch.

The Outside of the Wallet

Cut 3 of the pouches so that you have three pieces that you can sew together and have 10 inches of material. These will be used for the outer part of the wallet so organize the artwork on the juice pouches in a way that is attractive. You can see the format that I chose in the picture below.

The Inside of the Wallet

For the inside of the wallet, start by duplicating what you did for the outside of the wallet. You basically will need another piece of material measuring 10 inches by 4 inches.

Adding Pockets

Now you can add inner pockets if you desire them. Sew these to the inside part of the wallet (2 pouches sewn together). Remember this is a tri-fold wallet so place to pockets accordingly. To make card pockets you will want to cut rectangles out of pouches that measure 3.5 inches x 3.25 inches for the pocket in the middle (the card will fit from the top) and 3.75 inches x 2.5 inches for the pocket on each side (the cards will fit in on the side). You can cut smaller rectangles the same width and sew them to the larger rectangle to make more pockets.

Finishing The Project

Once you have completed the pockets in the inner part of the wallet you can sew the front and back together leaving one side open to put the bills in.

If you have any tips or pictures of wallets that you have made with juice pouches, be sure to email them to me or post them below. I would love to see them.

And these will probably block the intrusive RFID chips.
