I decided a wanted a handy dandy wallet for carrying various small sizes of art paper–ATC size, 3.5 x 3.5 and 4×4, so I bought a sheet of Tyvek for $2 bucks, had it cut down, and started tangling. Once I covered one side of a 10×14 sheet (the finished sheet is the example I used for the tangle Intersect), I looked up an origami pattern online, and started folding. Too much of my zentangle was covered in the finished result, and lots of white showed, so I did some more tangling afterward. And here ’tis:

I’m happy with the size and shape of the wallet, but the ink does leave a faint smudge on my fingers, and I’m enjoying the whole process.  I’ve got some more Tyvek, so I’m going to make more.  I’m painting an acrylic background before tangling this time.  We’ll see if that helps make the ink less liable to wear.
