A long time ago, about a year or so, I started to make cassette tape wallets... ever since then, I've wanted to make a cassette tape coin purse with a metal purse frame thing, but I've been too cheap to buy them.  Finally I got my hands on a frame from an old decrepit wallet and the best part was that it fit perfectly with a cassette tape... I knew what I had to do.  And I wanted to share my new coin purse with all of you.

Ta da~

I love how it turned out Smiley

this is so cute.  mad kudos for reuse in a totally fab way.

Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.  Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun... to express ourselves.

that's awesome! It looks very well-made...I'm also curious as to how you attached the tape.  Did you re-make the coin purse part as well, or just attach the tape to it?

Thanks everyone! I'll try to answer every question so far.. sorry if I skip someone, it's late and I'm sleepy!  I'll check tomorrow to answer any more.

The glue I use is E6000.  Someone suggested that glue to me for my first cassette tape wallet and I use it for everything now.  It's the best.

To make it, I basically made another coin purse thing with just the fabric and some cardboard and glued the tape on.  When the metal frame was on the wallet, it had a cardboard piece that made it's shape and fabric was glued on to that... I basically just did that with new cardboard and fabric.  Sorry, that probably makes no sense... I'll try to draw up some diagrams in the next few days to show or something haha.
