Great idea! By the way, if anyone needs the template, I found a downloadable PDF of one which you can just print out and use.

Oh I would love to make one of these out of the map for the Chicago Metra! I used to live close and used the Metra a lot, so it'd be a cute little memento.

I got an Oyster card wallet free when I bought my card. Vinyl is a clear plastic fabric, you should be able to pick some up in a fabric store!
