My mom was going to throw a bunch of old Beta tapes and I decided to rescue some of them for some recycle-crafts, this is the first one I figure for them... the Beta Tape Box... which is basicaly a Box covered with woven Beta tape...
I've been covering boxes with different recycled materials, to store other recycled materials XD...  

This one was pretty simple but, you know, it does take some time to finish...

Step 1: Materials

You'll need

- A box (or anything you want to cover in tape)
- A tape source (in this case a Beta cassette)
- Screwdriver (to open the cassette)
- Scissors
- Adhesive tape
- Packing tape (as reinforcement)
i still have an old copy of ET on a Beta Tape!!! I don't think i could part with it though!! The box looks awesome btw
<br /> Hmm, I have a lot of video tape too...<br /> <br /> L<br />
You'll cover the world XD... I actually used less than a half of one single beta videocassette to cover the whole box ;)
<br /> I've got &gt;50 VHS cassettes.<br /> <br /> L<br />
Um... What <em>is</em> a Beta Tape?
well... once upon a time where DVD's were far away to come... there was a great way to watch movies at home... was pretty expensive and all... but was light in darkness... and it was called BetaMax a videocassette tape that could be recorded and was developed by Sony... eventually the Betas where left in the past due to the VHS... but their legacy continues within some of our kind-of-old hearts... treasuring our first recordings of old cartoons and stuff... Long live the Betas... (you can actually see a Beta videocassette in the materials picture of this instructable... now they seam forgotten by many and unknown by many more... like the longplays of homevideo)
Sorry I know what laser disks are still watch some of the old Star Wars and Yellow Sub. on it i can use the vcr faster tmy sister on her dvd player but i handn't heard much about Beta Tapes
nah, don't worry... they are old stuff... started on the 70's became popular on the 80's... then kind of vanished, but are still pretty... I think
Very nice! Check out www.sonicfabric.com and see the stuff being made with old cassette tape

Hey, this is a pretty good idea for some of those movie nuts we have here. You should add it to one of their groups.
