I have a fun project to share with you today. As we all know you can walk in to practically any thrift store and find cassette tapes on sale for 25 or 50 cents - heck maybe even less as I bought mine a while back. Now before you laugh at me, let me tell you I didn't buy them for the tapes but for the case. That's right, the case. Just imagine me standing there looking over the cases for cracks, breaks, deep scratches, etc. And all for a 25 cent plastic case. LOL
But it's what I'm doing with those cases that makes me so darn picky. You see I'm altering them and using them to hold business cards at my craft shows. And since I live in the Panhandle of Florida, with the World's Most Beautiful Beaches, along the Gulf of Mexico of course I had to use a beach theme.
So to cover my cases I used DCWV's Tahiti Beach Stack.
For the cuts I used the Cricut cartridge, Life's a Beach.
I cut the hands, (one flipped) at 1" and the sandals on both holders were also cut at 1".
The stamped sentiments are from Cardz TV Stamps set Simply Said.
To cover the cassette case cut rectangles in the following sizes:
1 @ 1 1/2" x 4 1/4"
2 @ 2 5/8" x 4 1/8"
1 @ 1 1/8" x 4"
Simply glue the rectangles to the cassette case, embellish and insert your business cards
And now I'm off to enter my project into the Earth Day Challenge at Die Cutting Divas. The challenge is to use recycled materials.
