A record-player wedding invite

How incredibly cool:

The resulting booklet is comprised of a cover, two inner pages, a letterpressed band (with instructions and a tear-off RSVP postcard), and a flexdisc on a screwpost. The recipient bends the second page of the booklet back to create a tented “arm.” With the needle placed, they then carefully spin the flexidisc at 45 RPM (ish) to hear the song. The sewing needle travels the length of the song and produces the sound.

    Jeeze Louise. Now do I feel dull or what.

    The closest I got to creativity at my wedding was asking the caterer to include a hot dog stop next to the pasta table.

    Sigh.

    This is one of those projects where you expect the phrase “Because we can”.

    Awesome.
