How to Reuse Old Photographs to Make a Personalized Wallet

I have boxes and boxes full of old prints.  Now most of my negatives are becoming digitized, so I wanted to do something with my old photos.

Here’s one idea!

How to Make a Wallet from Old Photographs:

1.  Pick 6 favorite photographs. (I’ve used landscapes, but you can use anything.)

2.  Cut each photograph to measure 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches.

3.  Place 3 photos side by side with 1/4 inch between them.  Tape them together using packaging tape.  Tape both sides to increase structure and avoid stickiness.

4.  Do the same for the remaining 3 photos.

5.  Lay the 2 sets of photographs side by side so that one of the long sides of each is 1/4 inch away from the other.  Tape them together.  Tape all around the wallet.

6.  Fill with money and credits and fold in tri-fold and stick it in your pocket or purse!
