  • I used a 3in wide elastic band
  • Wrap elastic band around however many cards you usually carry
  • Mark the length it takes to go around your cards 360
  • Cut the band a bit shorter than where you marked, this way your cards will fit snug plus the band expands a bit over time
  • Make sure to put enough downward force to cut through the elastic band, otherwise it will fray
  • I like to singe the edge and the trim the edge so it's straight
