I followed this tutorial, using a large hook(I)...I lined the little bag and gave it to my niece...pretty easy crochet...nothing fancy, basically a rectangle!  One tip--I did not even take the tape apart like it said....I just pulled it out from the "front"..and, it is crunchy a bit, so it does hold its shape for things like baskets...I might make a few more just to get rid of the boxes of cassettes that my hubby had from his old recording studio....

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!

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.


God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
