Paper Micro-Wallet

Here’s the wallet that I carry:


It is made of paper, for which you should use a strong type.  I use a vellum for this, usually, partially because it is strong, partially because it doesn’t look dirty after sitting in your pocket for a while.  The design is simple, since it is a simple letterfold with paper that has been cut to 7″ X 11”.  The letterfold design can be found at what is still the best letterfolding site, hosted by GHH.com, which I don’t even know what that is. . . This is the “NB Letterfold” at the site.  The advantages here are several: 

1–As you can see from the fuzzy camera-phone pictures, there are three pockets, plus a place to put money or receipts. 

Pocket #1


Pocket #2 (which is in the back, separated from pocket #1 by a bunch of paper and hard to see in this crappy picture)


Pocket #3


2–It is paper, so, in a pinch, you can take notes on it.  The notes can be small, or if you need more space, you can unfold the whole thing and you have two sides of a 7″ X 11″ piece of paper to scribble on. 


3–It is easily replaced

4–it is paper, so it doesn’t weigh much or distort your pants.

5–You can also print a phone list on it, or list your passwords on it in such a way that you will have them with you (both can be printed on the side that won’t show, and then you unfold the paper if you really need them).

Favorite wallet by far. I make mine out of tyvek envelopes.
