Card case

A credit card case of paper. 10 centimetres × 7 cm.

Thick and strong paper is good. Laminated paper is better.

Cut paper and lining cloth to inside.
Draw the fold lines by scratching with an awl. Make a slit.
Fold cloth and iron it.

Fold paper and glue cloth.

Paper case is cheap and weak.
It's easy and unexpensive. You can make various cases and use always new one.

This leather case has a partition.
I used thick leather for outside, thin leather for lining.

Can cover

Lining a trash can with a plastic shopping bag is good for cleanness.
But it doesn't look beautiful.

Why not make a simple cover or belt?
Attach fastening tapes to the both sides of thick paper. Then wind it around the can.

If you make the cover with cloth, it is washable.
