Fans of the cassette tape wallet (or coin purse or handbag) might also like the instructions for this fab  8 Track tape wallet from Tissuepapers. You young whippersnappers might not even know what an 8 track is, and some of us older whippersnappers only barely remember them, but you can still find them at certain grandparents’ houses (old beach houses are also a good place to find them, in my experience!), or thrift stores if you keep your eye out for them.

You will also need a few tools and other on-hand items. You can use stuff from your stash, or pick up some of them at the dollar store. You’ll probably need to reclaim a long zipper from an old sweatshirt, or buy one at the fabric store.

Project Estimate:

  • 8 track tape, on hand or thrifted, $.50
  • hot glue gun, on hand
  • fabric, on hand
  • pliers, on hand (or pick up at the dollar store if you don’t have, $1)
  • long zipper, on hand or $1-3
