Who needs Dockers and Fossil when you can make your own wallet? It sounds ridiculous, I know, but it works.

Taiwanese designer, Mr Zhou’s wallet fell apart and instead of buying a new one, he decided to make his own. He happened to have a Starbuck’s bag on hand, so he improvised. 

With an exact knife, ruler, the paper bag and some double-sided tape, he created a fully functional wallet with a pocket for cash as well as slots for credit cards. Pretty neat!

      • I think that you’d be very successful when you’re ready to make it. I’d like to see the end result. I’d be interested but it’s way to complicated for me. But I like the idea, though. 🙂

      • Thanks for the vote of confidence! I will give it a shot eventually and I’ll make sure I post it when I do. Thanks!
