RFID sleeve shield

To build this project, you will need the following

  • Duct tape
  • Ruler
  • Aluminum foil
  • Scissors

    Thats all you need! Lets start building!

    Step 3: Lay down tape

    Rip off two duct tape strips about 5 inches long.

    Lay the two strips one over the other in order to increase the width

    Once that's done, tear off a big piece of foil and cover the pieces of duct tape

    You should now have a duct tape side and a foil side

    Next Step!

    Step 4: Cut

    Now take out your ruler!

    Measure out a 2 and 1/2 width and 3 and 1/2 height

    using a pen CREASE don't DRAW on the tape. Use pressure but don't draw on the tape.

    Now get out your scissors and cut out the rectangle. (Clean the scissors often, it gets difficult to cut duct tape)


    **Easy Tip** Its faster and easier to simply trace a card and cut out the shape. Just lay the card on the tape and trace around it with a pen

    Step 5: Repeat

    Make another side!

    Do exactly the same thing you did before.

    (Start over from step 3)

    Step 6: Tape sides

    Now lay both pieces FOIL DOWN next to each other

    Lay a small strip of tape over the seams to connect the two

    Fold and tape the other side together

    tape of of the remaining sides

    Cut off excess tape

    Basically all your doing is taping three sides together, once that's done make sure your card fits and then place a heavy object on top of it over night. THis will make it tight and thinner.

    Step 7: Cut again

    **This step is optional**

    Using a cap or circle templat (I used a glue stick lid) trace out a half circle

    Once thats done, cut it out!

    This will make your sleeve look better and its easier to remove your card.

    Step 8: Your done!
