Some interesting and unusual items can be made from easily available materials intended for other purposes.

Plastic wallets like these are available in a few colours, from stationery shops. They are often very slightly textured and may appear to have a pearlescent surface when they reflect the light.

Because they are semi-transparent, they can be overlapped to create a much wider range of colours. Notice that the order of the colours may change the effect. For example, green over yellow may not look the same as yellow over green.

They are easy to mark, score, bend, cut and fold. You can draw on them with a ball-point, or felt, pen. They can be cut with scissors or a craft knife.
