I have been making journals/planners out of the sleeves, but now have a collection of VHS Cassettes...Yes, the movies are cool and I can watch them over and over, but there are only so many copies of "Batman" that I want (Even though I want the covers real bad!)

So what can I do with the tapes?
Something with the inside tape itself? Too bad it's not like movie reel film and I can hold it up to a lamp and see the individual frames....sigh.

Does anyone else want them!?

My candle burns at both ends, it will not last the night.  But oh, my friends, and oh, my foes, it gives a lovely light.

I'm actually glad you asked about this. My daughter's room has black accents and those flowers I linked above would be perfect in her room!

I bet if you empty out the tapes you could make some cool boxes with them. I'd use it to hold stationary or photos, especially with the clear bits it is easy to see what's in there.

Use the tape to make party bunting? Or garden ties?
