ha! i love this. if i make one, i'm just tying the ribbon through one of the holes--then it's double the fun, you can wear it and it's still playable. :]

thats really cool Happy Far better than paying for them!
I did a lazy version with my dictaphone tapes a while ago, where i just thread a chain/ribbon through the two holes in the tape. I love them.. but your way looks awesome.

I'm gonna make one that hangs length ways across my chest so that the ribbon looks like it's spooling off the wheels inside the cassette.
