A wallet made from a large tetra brick
I freind of a friend told her how to make this and she though me, now i'm teaching you!.
As usual, i took a bunch of pictures to compensate my lame instructions.

This is a very basic wallet, you can go crazy and add your own touches.

PS: It can also be covered in paper instead of fabric, but you might have to use transparent plastic as well.
