Movie Collage Wallhanger

Pen-stand from old cassette covers

Using nine old cassette covers, i made a pen-stand. I have used oil paint, and varnish to paint the framework.

Didn't quiet like the loopy look.

Changed it to a bolder, smudged effect.

All Purpose Basket

I had lots of old plastic DVD covers, newspapers, cassettes, and two cylindrical carbon filters ( from the water purifier) , which i didn't use anymore. I put them together to make a basket to keep newspapers, magazines, rolled chart-paper, and posters.

I made the frame, by attaching the DVD covers to an old carton, using cello-tapes.

Then i applied a few layers of paper on the frame work, to make it smooth and sturdy.

I stitched this basket to the two cylindrical carbon filters, with rope. The basket was now easier to move, the had more support.

I let the basket dry for a day. Then I painted the outer surface with white enamel paint. Finally i decorated the basket with painted cassettes, and the cassette reel.
