Arabesque Wallet Tutorial

ACraftyArab Arabesque Wallet TutorialIn the past, we have had fun making a differnet coin purse to hold the kid’s Eid money that they get.  This year my oldest wanted to make a wallet instead of a coin purse to try out something new.

I found this great Duct Tape design at Joann today that was on sale and we turned it into this when I got home from my morning errands.


Cutting Mat
Velcro circles
Arabesque Duct Tape
Black Duct Tape


Lay out the arabesque Duct Tape a little over 7 inches, sticky side up. Fold over one end by about 1/4 inch.

Lay down a black strip of black Duct Tape over the green with a little overlap by 1/4 inch.  Flip it over so now you have the sticky side of the black Duct Tape facing up Lay another layer of arabesque Duct Tape, continuing until you have a piece of “fabric” that is a little over 5 x 8. Lover over the last bottom edge so that sticky side is completely covered.
You’ll need to trim your wallet edges to 4 1/2 by 7 inch.
Make sure the black side of the fabric is facing up and fold over the long end of the fabric 5 3/4 inch in.
Cut an extra little strip of black fabric to close up the sides.
Round out the edges of the wallet.
Cut the cardboard into a 3 1/2 x 1 inch piece.  Place it on the inside of the flap of the wallet and cover with a piece of black Duct Tape.
Place the Velcro circles in the flap.
Your finished wallet will look like this.
