DIY – Map Wallet

diy - map wallet

This beautiful wallet is made out of a map. I made it for my boyfriend for valentines day. Of course you could make it with any paper you really like. It’s really easy to make, so let’s get started!

The full instruction continues after the jump . . .

What you need

– a map or some other pretty paper
– transparent self-adhesive foil (contact paper)
– a ruler
– a pencil
– a sewingmachine

How you make it 

Start with drawing the following rectangles on your paper:

– 20 cm x 10 cm
– 3 cm x 5 cm
– 12 cm x 10 cm
– two times 8 cm x 10 cm
– 6 cm x 10 cm
– 4 cm x 10 cm

Take the  self-adhesive foil and put it on the front and the back of your paper. Now you can cut out your pieces.

The 20×10 is the base of your wallet. On the right side you put the 5×3 in the middle, with one cm inside the wallet. Put the 12×10 over that and finish with one of the 8×10. Now sew alongside the outside of the wallet to secure it. For the left side put first one of the 8×10 down, then the 6×10 and finish with the 4×10. Sew alongside the outside of the wallet to secure. Now take your self self-adhesive velcro  and put it on the closing of the wallet and on the closing of the little pocket inside the wallet.
