Upcycled Crafts: How to Make a Book Cover Wallet Part 2
Hello everyone! As promised, here is the second part of our tutorial on how to make a wallet out of a book cover. Although there are many ways to add pockets to hold cards, we chose to use Mylar donated to us that is traditionally used to cover library books.
Cut out two pieces of Mylar that measure 4″ x 2 1/2″. Using the hot glue, attach each piece of Mylar to the inside flaps of the wallet. Try to use a thin strip of hot glue on the sides and the bottom, to leave room for cards to fit into the pocket.
To cover up the hot glue, we used craft tape along the sides. All done! Admittedly, most adults need more than two pockets for all their cards, but we thought this would be a nice wallet for kids who carry library cards.
