Tutorial: Contactless Card Holder

If like me, you’re not exactly thrilled with the idea of contactless bank cards, I have an easy solution to keep cards more secure… a tin foil card holder.

You will need:

  • Bank Card
  • Tin Foil
  • Scissors
  • Washi Tape
  • Sellotape

First place your card horizontally on the foil and fold it around the card. Make sure you don’t fold it too tightly else you won’t be able to remove your card afterwards! Then tape the join together:

Trim one end of the foil and fold the corners over (as if you were wrapping a present) and cover the entire holder with tape to strengthen it. Then use your washi tape to decorate the holder.

Next, take your card out of the holder and trim the open end so that the holder is slightly shorter than your card (this will make it easier to remove).

Then open up the holder slightly and tape the inside edges so that the card doesn’t get stuck on the foil and rip the holder.

Finally cover the holder in another layer of sellotape to protect it and voilà… The card and holder should fit in your purse easily and put a stop to any accidental payments!
