How to Make a Shoebox Wallet by The North Face

TNF x Mappy Hour

As we all sit home looking for fun projects to do with our families during quarantine, we asked our TNF friends over in Japan to share this cool project created by Fuyaki Shimazu, Ranyo Tanaka, and The North Face Japan.

Here is a step by step guide on how to take a shoe box and make it into a very cool, useable wallet. Included in this kit is everything you will need to get this started.

Join us next Tuesday night on Zoom as we craft together.

STEP 1: Find a Shoebox

The design for the template is based on preferably using a North Face shoebox but honestly, any shoebox you can find will do!

STEP 2: Download the Template

STEP 3: Print or Trace the template

For those with printers, you can easily just print it out – everyone else, we’re going to have to get creative! Hold up a piece of paper to your screen and trace away y’all – you’ll need this to do the project.

STEP 4: Start Folding!
