How To Make a Paper Wallet
Good for boys and girls of all ages. Because a paper wallet is totally hipster.
- A Printer
- Photo Paper
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.
