Nina, seriously, that tutorial is AWESOME!  I can't wait to make one of these.  I was thinking...wouldn't a guitar pick make a neat closure bead??

Also, you could make bigger journals out of old VHS tape sleeves or even Beta tape sleeves (since they're useless now anyway)!!

this was so much fun!
incredible tutorial!!   Grin

i'm only 15 so i've never bought a cassette in my life. there was only one cassette single in the house so i used it --whitney houston

i used ribbon to tie and kept original flap

euh pink and white paper and black embroidery floss. i would suggest not using the entire 4 threads of the floss, it was hard to fit through the holes and i ended up getting frustrated halfway through and breaking the floss and had to restring, but i was smarter that time and only used 2 threads of my 4 thread floss.

great project... i love it... now i'm off to try video cassettes!  Kiss

sorry for the obsessive posting tonight... lol i am hooked on this project

i made another one, this time out of a VHS container. my only gained wisdom from my second attempt is that i would not make the height of the paper the same as the height of the notebook... i'm sure it's much more complicated when figuring out where to put the holes and stuff but then you wouldn't get paper spillage over the top like in my notebook (website below).

i hope to use it as a photo album of some sort (maybe finally making prints of my digital photos... after all what good are they if they're trapped in my computer?  Roll Eyes )

this one has paper that is a lighter green color than the cover, and just one magazine. i used green embroidery floss as you can see and a cool bead for the closing. {oh an if someone wants to make one out of VHS container paper should be 4" x 7.5" (or vice versa... i can never get the order right) once folded (so that's really 8" x 7.5" before folding) but i think it would be a good idea to make the height shorter than 7.5" so you won't get spillage out the top and bottom} eek that was a long 2

and i once again the tutorial is just too great! it makes me soo happy the ease of it! (oh and now it works in the right order! wahoo!)  Grin  Kiss Grin

edited to add: you can see in the photo i did not use the original cover of the movie i just recovered it with a zoolander motif

I went to the thrift store today and was disappointed to find a total of three cassette singles, none of which I found particularly interesting or even recognized.  So, later I was making pudding and thought to myself...This box is almost the same size as a cassette tape sleeve!  So, I dug through the cabinet and am now making a journal from a lemon jello box. haha  It's going to be so cute!  I will post pictures when I'm done, but it will be a few days because my dad's out of town and has our digital camera right now.

hey everyone!  I'm so glad you're enjoying the tute!  I just got to a computer (we're on our trip right now) and have just now had the chance to see what you've made- they're LOVELY!!  I did try some with VHS covers...they work pretty well (I'll post the NKOTB one we did when I get back home at the end of the month).  I've also tried candy cigarette boxes (maybe some real cigg boxes at the end of the week), Lemon Heads and Red Hots boxes...and decks of cards boxes.  Really cool results.  Smiley
Good job everyone!
