Okay, I'm going to take the video cassette apart, to see which parts I can recycle into my craft
I just need to remove the five screws
Then I lift the case apart
To discover the goodies inside...
I've lifted out the spools so I can cut the end of the the magnetic tape and separate them. Note to self (and anyone else who might be listening)... it's a good idea to REWIND the video first, so that all the tape is on the one spool. Not the end of the world if you don't, but it just makes the process easier.
Now to assess my materials...
Video plarn - to knit or crochet with
Empty spool - will go into the kid's craft box... and probably become wheels on a tissue box car, or something similar
These pieces will be added to my 'bead' collection to be used on a future project
These will go into my 'useless screws' jar... I know I will use them for something!
I have grand plans for recycling this case into something my daughter will love.
No idea what to do with this black plastic casing, other than dispose of it. I won't give it to the kids, because there are too many small pieces attached.
Anyone have an idea for me??? I'm open to suggestions of any kind!
