I just started working at a library and we have hundreds of plastic tape holders.  What can I do with them?  If you come up with an awesome idea you want to try on your own I will send you as many as you want or will fit in a flat rate box.  Smiley  PM me.

This may be a silly question... but what do you mean by plastic tape holders?   

as in like the plastic center of the roll of tape?

`how about putting holes in them and making some interesting mobiles or door curtains?  You could paint them different colors. 

~ornaments... again you could put a hole in one end, put perhaps a bead or beads in the center, and an ornament hook on top.

~Big earrings or pendants.

if you are talking about the cassette tape case holders...alter them like a matchbox.  they can be used to wrap small gifts, or as a unique greeting card.

Do you mean the plastic holder that's left after you use the scotch tape? If you could post a picture of one,I'm sure we can come up with some crafty ideas.

If you are talking about cassette tape cases I had an idea.

This is gonna sound really weird but if you open the case so that it stands at like 90 degrees you could use it as a little mobile shrine, or you could make tiny stick puppets and use them as a mobile puppet theater for kids.

Ah, the randomness of my brain...
