How to Make a Vintage Cassette Case Vase


This tutorial couldn't be simpler.
Grab your old cassette cases. Leave the
 cassettes inside as a sort of time capsule.
Or, remove the cassettes for another fun project
 to be posted here in the coming weeks.

You need a minimum of 4 cassette cases to 
make a short vase.

I recommend 8 cassettes to create a "tower vase."

You can see from the first photo how to arrange
 the cases so each side of the square 
displays a cover and a spine.  

All you do is use your trusty hot glue gun 
to glue the cases together.


Easy Peasy!

Now, simply drop silk flowers into 
the tower to create a centerpiece.
To use real flowers, just slip the case 'vase' 
over one of those slender bud vases.

If you're using real flowers and worry
someone will pick up the case vase
and create a spill, glue a piece of 
plastic to the bottom of the tower.

Take your recycling up a notch: trace around 
the tower bottom on a plastic lid, cut out 
and hot glue to the bottom of the tower.

Use your centerpieces as give-aways
at the party...

or keep them for a fun way
to store pens, pencils
and other supplies.

Stay tuned for how to use the cassettes in a project.
