I hope you're having a Magnificent Monday!
Today I wanted to share a creative project I made for Luke.
A few weeks ago I was sitting and thinking about what I could give Luke for Valentine's Day. I had already selected the perfect card, but I wanted to give him something too. This was the first Valentine's Day we officially celebrated together so I wanted it to be meaningful and creative, but nothing to serious either.
So, I put on my creative hat and came up with an idea!
I decided that I liked the idea of mixtapes, but I wanted to take a modern spin on the mixtape concept.
Here is how to make a modern mixtape...
Step 1- Buy a gift card for a digital music provider. I went with itunes.
Step 2- Place the gift card on a piece of paper and trace around it with a pencil. Cutout the piece of paper and decorate it to look like a cassette tape. Then, tape it onto the front of the gift card.
Step 3- Find an old cassette case and decorate the inside with whatever papers you like.
Step 4- Select special songs and write out a playlist to put on the cassette case. The gift recipient can then use the gift card to purchase digital copies of each of the songs. You can also write a nice note to tuck into the case also. (You'll have to get create and come up with your own song list if you make your own version of this project. I did my best to blur the set list on purpose. The song list was unique and I took time and care to put it together for Luke. So, I wanted to keep that part special and not broadcast it to the internet.)
Put it all together and there you have it! A modern mixtape!
I can't fully express how much I enjoyed making it for Luke and seeing his face when he opened it. I'm glad to know he has been enjoying the music lately and that I introduced him to some new songs that he has listened to a lot.
What do you think of my modern mixtape idea?
As always, may your Mondays be Magnificent!
