(W)Rapping Records

Today is Caroline’s birthday. From her family, she got a sick turntable!! She has been dying for a Beyonce Beanie from Etsy, but they were sold out! I decided to get her the new Tame Impala album on vinyl: Lonerism. It’s really awesome and contains one of the best seven minutes in heaven songs – “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.” I wrapped it with black tissue paper and embellished it with a white gelly roll pen and washi tape (the usual) :) The box was from Urban Outfitters with purchase, so ideally when wrapping a record the box would be square.

I always make handmade cards, obviously, so for Caroline I wrote a little love note on the inside, included an article about the Bones Brigade, and made the “objects” taped to the front of the card (see below) out of paper. Happy Birthday – love you bitch!

“Ideally. I could give you all the important things on your birthday: sex, drugs, beyonce…(open card) but hookers, dealers, and Baby Bé are all out of the budget.”
