Here is my own vcr tape purse.  I got the idea of this clutch bag from Recycle Cindy's crocheted clutch.  I just knit a rectangle in garter stitch, slip stitched the sides together, and made a double crochet scalloped border on the flap.  There are a few chain stitches separating the center flap to use as a buttonhole.  In the 1st picture I stuffed some white paper towels in it to try to show it up better.  (Actually, my mom helped me w/ the crocheting part & putting it together!)

Just stumbled upon this bag.  It's so cool.  It's so glitsy, it looks good enough for evening wear.  Good re-cycling.
