So I took apart an old cassette and used the tape inside as ribbon on all my Christmas Gifts.
Then I got the idea to make this using the old carcass of the cassette. I gojoed it, gave it a hammered metallic finish, added some patina... I took four old gears and stuck them in there in place of the tape reel, and added a chain where there once was tape. I made this label using some various free photoshop brushes, then printed it on parchment paper and aged it a little bit before gluing it on.
I also screwed a picture hanger on the back. Now I got a little mini wall sculpture. Yay.
