This original Nintendo cartridge sleeve, repurposed as a pen holder, doesn’t really deserve the distinction of being a hack or mod, but it did remind me just how sultry and gorgeous those vinyl sleeves really were. I really don’t think protective packaging has ever managed to be more simple or attractive. And they smelled great.
