I love to recycle and reuse things. Do you? We’ll then here is a great way to recycle old cassette tape cases.

Old cassette case
Designer series paper
Sticky strip
Card stock
Brad
Flower punchy

Glue
Trimmer
Bone folder

Take the cassette out of the case and wipe off the case.

Measure the back and cut card stock to fit, snail it in place.
Measure front tray part and cut DSP to match
I put a piece of card stock glued to the bottom to make it smoother but you don’t have to.
Punch out 3 flowers out of DSP, put a hole in the middle and put brad through. Use the bone folder to curl the flower petals.
Glue dot or sticky strip it onto the front.
You can’t also add a butterfly to the top, a ribbon around the front and a boarder as shown if you want.
