Here are $43 wallets made from old cassette tapes.
Casette Wallet [Design Boom]
Some crafty person makes these in Minneapolis, as well, and sells them for less than half the price in local boutiques.
Or just make your own with the help of this photo-illustrated tutorial.
This has been on my to-do list for a while now. I have some lovely mid-80s mix tapes that deserve a second life.
Dude, normally I’m unfazed by expensive adaptations, but $43 seems really high.
$43 to crack an old cassette in half and glue in a zipper? really?
At $43 it better be C86.
I thought they were joking about the price but apparently they aren’t. Maybe it is really meant to inspire people to go out and make things for themselves?
Dodi mentioned Chezlin’s tutorial on how to make these wallets, but I thought I’d also add that she has an Etsy store she started a couple days ago to sell some of the things she makes on her website. Right now she’s listed 2 cassette tape wallets at http://chezlin.etsy.com for $20 a piece
