I usually use the cassette tape sleeve rather than the actual plastic cassette tape.  I didn't want to throw it out and and came up with another type of journal/notebook.  I did find the inspiration from an etsy shop.  I'll have to find the store again.  Any constructive criticism would be appreciated.  This is my first attempt at this type of journal.

This is my first attempt at a tutorial and posted it here:

*Wisted* Just a quick question. How did you manage to take the tape apart without destroying it? I can never manage to find the ones that are put together with the screws, and when I try to use my dremel.... the thing is... dead  Roll Eyes

i love it!  how did you do it?

Everything is sewn.  No glue was used for this project.  It took me about 3 hours to do this.  Most of it was spent figuring out how to make it from a photo.  You can check out this shop on etsy for my inspiration. bibliopegy.etsy.com  I believe they used coptic stitch, but I didn't have enough time to teach myself.  I did my own version of the original 
That's always the difficult part since I've realized that some folks do not like to share "secrets".  I used fabric, but you can use any type of decorative paper if you prefer. 

As soon as I do another one, I will put up a tutorial.  I'm not stingy with information at all.

*Wisted* Just a quick question. How did you manage to take the tape apart without destroying it? I can never manage to find the ones that are put together with the screws, and when I try to use my dremel.... the thing is... dead  Roll Eyes

I used a flat head screwdriver and carefully pry at the seams.  I don't even own a dremel.  I used needle nose pliers to pull unwanted parts.  I had to borrow my hubby's tool and use a very tiny drill to make holes in the corner. 

Super Awesome!  I was going to make a tape wallet but this is slowly changing my mind.  Thumbs up to you!

You can check out my version of the tape wallet http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238621.msg2620026#msg2620026.   I only used glue. Now that I have used a drill for small holes, I will be reconstructing the wallet to be sewed on instead of glue.  I do not like using glue for everyday functional projects only for scrapbook or any paper crafts.
