Ok first you will need to chose 2 main colors. In the picture, I have checker and silver. You will need to make 2 thick, decent sheets. 1 sheet for 1 main color and 1 sheet for another main color. The sheets should be about 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches.
After you are done, make sure there is no sticky parts showing. Cut a 4 inch piece from the other color and cut it down the middle. Then fold both pieces in half. Do the same thing with ANOTHER 4 inch piece.
This step is when you use your steady fingers. you are going to use 2/4 of your strips and take 1 sheet. Make a X with the2 strips. When you make the X, make sure it is not taking up the whole sheet, you will find out why in the next step. Now hold the X in the middle with a finger and make sure the end where you are going to connect the other sheet has extra space from the strips. the other end should also have extra space but much shorter then the other side. Tape the ones with the smaller spaces to the back of the sheet and the other one in the back of the other sheet that we didn't start with yet. Don't tape it tight because if your do, this won't work.
Now, this is why you had to make the X small. Take your other 2 strips and line them up STRAIGHT 1 above and 1 below the X but not on that same sheet. Do the same process like you did to the X except doing the straight lines and on a different sheet. Now both sheets should be connected with the 2 of the 4 strips.
Now make sure everything is not tight but secured on. Now the magic happens. Open your wallet and you see one side has a X and the other one has the straight. Close it and open it the other side and they SWITCH!! Be careful if you put objects in here because they do not hold objects that well. If you put something in there, it still switches. Hope You Enjoy and Have Fun!
