Uses for Old Video Tapes?

What are some good uses for old video tapes? Especially ones that can't be used again for recording because they are worn out. Can they be recycled?

Use as a gag gift, by making up a funny label appropriate to the theme you want to convey and applying the label to the tape.

Unravel the tape so you have a lot on the outside of the cartridge for effects and also for security incase there was something on the tape that you would not want viewed by chance.

I used this as a birthday gag gift, "Everything you wanted to know about (name) but were afraid to ask about!" staring (person's name). "Yesterday's stud muffin, today's sexy senior", staring (person's name),you get the idea. This got a lot of laughs in our group.

Best of all it's recycling and saves money on a funny gift; have you noticed how pricy the gag gifts are? create your own.

Use as a cat and bird deterrent. Unravel tape and thread loosely through any nearby trees or bushes.You could also thread the tape around a cane framework. The noise made by the wind whistling through keeps them away. - Margarete

Unravel the tape and use to tie up tall plants in your garden. Just be sure to remove it when gardening season is over.
