The classic wallet to produce the effect you want is called a Himber wallet. The method is differnt than the one you suggested, but try starting with that one. Any dealer should carry it.

I need that exact method because the effect I have in mind needs the spec to handle the wallet quite freely

Sounds like T.A. Waters' "Swopper Wallet".

I think it is out of production now, but I'm sure if you do a vast internet search you could probably find one.

A nice himber wallet (jerry o'connell makes great wallets in a few sizes) would work as it can only open one way at a time. A normal z fold wouldn't though you can just add your own magnets adn make it locking. Allowing the audience member to handle it would be down to good audience managment skills.

You can also use a thin strip of "Velcro" to seal up one side (after the dirty work is done)

I have used a z-fold with magnets for years and put it right in the spectators hand

just don't put credit cards in it the magnets will kill them
