I have a bunch of translucent cassette and CD cases, and also some old but unused cassette tapes. Anyone have a good idea for what I can do with them? I have the feeling they might be good for crafting, but I can't think of something to do with them

This is the kind of cassette tapes/boxes I have:

Nice ideas.  For a swap, I made a fairy door out of a cassette case.  The case itself is the frame and the door swings open.  I made insertable "door panels" by coloring index cards.  They are interchangeable.   I glued a picture of a fairy on the inside, peeking from real moss.  This project took me quite a while to complete (arthritis) but I was tickled with the results.

Since I may not have explained my project well, I finally got around to learning how to post photos here:

The cd cases are covered with pages from a Japanese style and fashion magazine.

This is another project using cd cases. I made double "walls" for the base, that is, 2 cases glued together for thickness, and two stacked for height), the top is a shelf I found in a discarded closet and the paper is all recycled from magazines and junk mail.
I made this tiny table years ago and it has withstood use as a coffee table, footrest and child's seat; several moves and (rare) cleaning - with nothing more than a but of wear on the paper, which is easily mended.
Know what they say about plastic lasting for thousands of years? Well, that means strong structures when used craftily!
