Introduction: How to Recycle Old Audio Tapes Into Greeting Cards!

have fun and use all your old audio tapes... who listen to them anymore??? ;-))

Step 1: Flower 1

you need:
scissors
glue
a crochet hook
plastic ring ( one for every flower - from bottles)
...and of course: an old audio tape
and some paperboard for the greeting card

what to do:
make a look with the tape
then make as many simple crochet stitches as necessary to fill the ring all around

Step 2: Flower 2

when you've covered the ring then make petals:

chain 4
fix with a simple crochet in the ring,
make as many petals as necessary to go around
cut the tape and pull

Step 3: Flower 3

make other flowers if you like....

Step 4: Flower 4

at this point I found out that it might be better to use my hot glue....

Step 5: Flower 6

find a green plastic shopper ... or green paper (magazines are great too!) and cut the stem and the leaf...

Step 6: Flower 6

Happy Spring!
or
Happy Summer!

i have tried to crochet with tape so many times and it is much more difficult that i thought it would be. Do you have any tips? I could really use them.

no problem for me... quite a big hook, and don't keep the tape too tightly (do you say so??) .. crochet loosely!
