Introduction: Cassette Tapes Pencil Box
I used to record a lot of songs on cassete tapes back in the late 80s / early 90s. It all changed when I bought my first CD recorder in 1997. I never get rid of the tapes, but I'll never listen to them again, I'm sure. So I decided to have a little fun, recycling them into a pencil box, thus honoring the great moments I had listening to these tapes in the old days.
