    I made a version of this a couple years ago, but it was kind of a hassle to paint and add all the details, so I never got around to making another one. I wanted to make a simple, cheap version and this is what I came up with. It's 5 VHS tapes, 2 sheets of sticker paper and some glue for a total cost of about $3.75. I did have to paint over the glue at the joints, but that only took a minute. It'll be super easy for me to make more now. The floors will stay the same and the stickers on the edges can be arranged to slightly change the look from piece to piece. The only thing I'd have to redesign each time would be the back sticker, but since I've got all the styles and brushes set up in photoshop now, that'll only take 15 or 20 minutes.

    I did a couple more of these. I have a few others already designed as well, but I'm currently out of stickers and tapes. The door background one took FOREVER to design.
