Make a wallet out of duct tape? How 1992. I remember learning how to make a duct tape wallet at scout camp in 1992, and extended that lesson to a duct tape tie which I wore to any and all high school presentations or performances that required an increased level of attire….

Enter the Innertube Wallet. As a Maker, geek, or otherwise shunned cheapskate, you doubtless have numerous blown bicycle innertubes, a few sheets of rusty 22 gauge steel, and any number of DOA hard disks and their attendant magnets. With such materials and a boundless enthusiasm for turning interminably stored junk into stuff you don’t need, I present the bitchin’ innertube wallet to solve all your wallety needs.

    I don’t know. I think inner-tubes smell aweful, like someone had a pee after having some fish for diner. Money stinks too, but hey that’s a verb.
