I have been talking with a friend who told me the sad story of Hanford's paper wallet. For those who don't know, his poor wallet was tragically lost during some childish and mean-spirited poolside shenanigans at Hukilau.

Hanford is very fond of paper wallets and it would cheer him up immeasurably if we could all build a paper wallet and send it to him. I will soon post my friend's address for you to mail your generous gift to, and I will forward them all to Hanford when I recieve them.

Here is a site that will help you if you don't know how to make your own paper wallet:

I'm sure the generous and caring folks here on TC will rally to help Hanford quickly recover from his tragic loss. "Mahalo" for helping!

This is a nice offer, but I prefer to use my own paper wallet design that I invented over ten years ago. After I make my next one, I'll post some photos.

Just to clear up any potential misunderstanding -- the shenanigans were definitely short-sighted and ill-advised, but not mean-spirited.

Hanford's paper wallet design is fantastic -- his last one lasted him a whole year!

Heck, after reading how to make that thing I got a headache.
Can't I just send a gift certificate for a canvas or leopard skin or eagle talon wallet?

Maybe a coconut wallet?

Nice try Pablus...and his father was shot where? In the buttocks, you say?

Funny how Andy Landry and Hanford share some of the some vowels and you never see them in the same room.

Nuff said.


Scammers...............

I make mine out of colored duct tape, they last 2-3 yr's which is the same as my leather wallets last, they have a clear ID pouch and credit card pockets. People often think they are eel-skin, started out as something to do during a general quarters drill in the military.

Now paper, that could be fun, esp. if painted first, groovy idea gang, Zoinks!

You can buy duct tape wallets at the hardware store. Maybe the paper wallets are at the stationary store.

how sweet would it be to have a wallet made out of paper money?

Wow, sounds cool Dogbytes. I'll check out those links.

I will post pictures of my next wallet. Not to split hairs but I've always considered the paper wallet to be the opposite of the duct tape wallet. Duct tape is tough, but paper is absurdly fragile, and my first paper wallet didn't even last me a day! I took it on as a challenge to figure out how to build one that wouldn't fall apart, and over the years I've refined the design. The second-to-last one I made (for Hukilau 2005) lasted one year! Although, to be fair, it was lined with tiki postcards.

Hopefully I'll have time to make a new one soon!

Now...what if a wallet was made of say....dried up sea kelp....Much like paper but... water proof? Plus it's a lovely shade of green/brown!
