Repurposed Cassette Tapes


I recently hit the found object jackpot. After discovering the potential that cassette tapes hold as book covers, a whole world of possibility opened up. I started out using a cassette as the front cover of a book and its matching lyric insert for the back cover. A few of these are pictured here: Indigo Girls, Lionel Richie and Bruce Springsteen (I can’t help but laugh at Bruce’s butt on the back cover). Recently, I paired some unusual cassettes with old book covers. I love the uniqueness of these. Now that garage sale season has started… I may be unstoppable!

    Great idea! Hope you don’t mind if I borrow it ;-)
    I have hundreds of tapes I never play any more but haven’t been able to bring myself to throw away.

    Yay! The tapes are great for coptic binding, because they already have holes in just the right place for sewing them to the pages. I’ll keep an eye on your blog to see if you make one!

    I saw you on Etsy. Wow, I love your stuff. I am getting ideas for project to make with my students k-6. I have used plenty of recyled materials at school. This is a good one. Thanks Koki

    [...] Erinzam (tnx again and again Sion :) ) ha scoperto le cassette come valide copertine dei quaderni. Molto particolare รจ anche la rilegatura. [...]
