I found a couple of these 1970s hard shell cassette tape carrying cases at the thrifts a while back for about a dollar each (Yay Value Village!). After removing the cracked plastic dividers, I lined the case with some dusty plum drapery fabric (also thrifted). Easy project and it'll make a nifty display for my upcoming shows.
- Here's a basic tutorial for the process if you'd like to make your own version.
- Check out thrift stores and tag sales for interesting cases and boxes (remove stale smells with baking soda and lavender oil)
- Don't forget to take a peek at the clothing and housewares sections of the shop/sale when scouting for boxes and cases. Often you can find repurposable velvet garments and other textiles at a fraction of the price that you'd pay for the fabric at a craft store.
