Step 1: Design It

Adults and Older Children Only: Using a cutting tool and scissors, cut the orange carton along the sides until the whole carton lays flat.

Step 2:  Prepare It

Using scissors cut off both sides, the bottom, and the front part below the spout on the carton. The only part that remains is the front part with the spout and the entire back piece.

Step 3: Fold It and Cut a Hole

Fold the back piece around to the front until it lays flat over the front spout, press firmly (this will leave an indent where the spout touches the backside.) Use a cutting tool, cut out the indent so that the hole fits securely over the spout.

Step 3 : Fold It and Cut a Hole

Step 4: Trim It

Use your scissors to trim up the excess carton on the front, so that the front and back of the wallet are uniform.

Step 5: Fill It

Fill the wallet with trading cards, dollar bills, coins, and your child’s library card.

Step 6: Close It

Once you have filled the wallet, fold the front closed again and screw the cap in place – this will keep the wallet closed. Now, watch your child beam with delight.
