I love to upcycle – it gives me an excuse to hoard that clutter…! I found a carrier bag full of cassette tapes (remember those?) in the attic and just knew there would be something I could make with them. I chopped the cassette in half and pulled out the insides to make this.
And inside there is a pocket, perfect for holding an iTunes gift card – or any other sort of gift card for that matter.
My 8 year old son Anthony wanted to make something out of the circuit board of the old keyboard. He thought it would look cool hanging on the wall like a picture.
We decided to print out and glue on some words to make a door sign.
The circuit board already had handy holes so we chopped some of the curly flex off and threaded it through for a hanging thread.
This is what you get when you find a dirty old keyboard in the attic, and you think it would be perfect for making a birthday card for your computer obsessed soon to be 10 year old.
