Good for boys and girls of all ages. Because a paper wallet is totally hipster.

You’ll need:


  • A Printer

  • Ink

  • Photo Paper

  • Scissors

  • Tape

First, check out iPaperCraft’s .pdf generator. There, you can generate a custom print-out for your wallet. I just like to show off family pictures on mine, but there’s also room for custom text (e.g. I heart HackCollege!). I recommend printing on photo paper because it’s a bit thicker than regular print paper. It’s also nice and shiny.

Second, follow the instructions posted at Instructables. These are very easy to follow, complete with pictures and comments. I recommend taping up the sides if you’re not going to use the second credit card compartments.

And if a paper wallet isn’t enough for you, CollegeHumor recently linked to other forms of origami. Interesting.

–ROSARIO DORIOTT absolutely loves her paper wallet.
