Instructables.com is a website where people can share projects they’ve worked on so that others can get help achieving the same results, or just learn more about what the project entails. I’ve used it several times, (including when I made a candle from an orange) and I really like this site.

Last year, when Nick made a duct tape tie, I went a little crazy and made a duct tape wallet for him, and although it’s lasted for a little over a year, it was finally done for a few weeks ago. I think one of the reasons it didn’t last as long as it could have was because of its construction – I had used his old wallet as a template, but really just kind of threw the wallet together, on a whim. There were a few pockets that were actually too small to fit a credit card properly, and there was an outside pocket I had forgotten to add. All in all though, it was a really cool wallet, and Nick got compliments on it all the time. When redoing the wallet his year, I decided I was going to try to be more careful with the design and be sure I came out with an even better result than last year.

Then I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if I shared my project on Instructables.com so others could make awesome duct tape wallets as well? Sure it would!

I went to Instructables.com and browsed their homepage. I had actually never even done that before. They really do have a wealth of great information on this site. I clicked on the “create” link and read more about joining and contributing content. The thing I like about Instructables.com is that you can share as much or as little information as possible – whether you’ve painstakingly documented every step of your project or just want to show the finished product to inspire others to do the same – its all welcome on this site.

I clicked on “Get Started,” put in my information, and right away I was brought to a page where I could start writing about my project and even add photos and links.  Simple as that!



If you’re looking for an out of the ordinary project, if you’re looking for a crafty solution to a storage or decorating problem, or if you’re just bored, you should really check out Instructables.com. The post on my “Awesome Duct Tape Wallet” will hopefully be up there soon, and you can make one yourself!
