There is something nostalgic about old cassette tapes that take me back to a carefree place. Although technology has advanced since then, I can't find it in me to say goodbye to these plastic memories. While searching for ways to recycle my old cassette tapes, I came across an Italian designer Marcella Foschi who, in my opinion, has found a useful and fun way to re-use them. She hand makes and sells these bright neon colored cassette wallets and has been fairly successful.

You can find some of her designs here. This DIY is definitely on my list of things to make. I will keep you posted on my progress. In the meantime, if you are looking for a way to recycle your cassette collection in order to clear up some space, don't trash them. Make an attempt to create a stylish wallet for yourself or even as gifts, or donate them to a thrift shop near you. There is always a way to minimize waste!
