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
- A box (or anything you want to cover in tape)
- A tape source (in this case a Beta cassette)
- Screwdriver (to open the cassette)
- Adhesive tape
- Packing tape (as reinforcement)
Step 2: Get the Tape
Step 3: Start Sticking and Waving
Then start waving them... you can do an over-under or an over-over-under-under or to play with that like over-under-under-over and so on... so this is just a repetition thing... be careful and stretch the strip... then use adhesive tape to stick it... (i made it double)
The next row should be the opposite of the previous one... so go under if the previous was over and viceversa... then stick it...
Go on until the face is covered...
Step 4: Reinforce Corners, the Botom and Inside
Cover the lid as well... I changed the pattern to an over-under... Reinforce corners as well.
Step 5: Beta Tape Box Ready
I don't recommend working around cats nor keeping a box like this around a cat... you don't wanna know what my cat did to my box :'(
