Making mixes

Even though I'm 30, I still love making mixes for friends and decorating the sleeves. This one is for a friend's birthday. I used some scrap fabric on the flappy part.

When I was a teenager I got pretty crazy with some of them. In fact, I think the pinnacle of my mixtape-making went to my friend Mary Ann (martaan, where are you?). That thing was awesome and included collaged photos, hand drawn elements, and even glitter!

Love it! My bff Jen and I used to make crazy mixed tapes for one another. Our dream road trip mix series with elaborate covers. Sigh.
I recently found a file of cool mag ads/images and scrap paper I had saved for future tapes. Ridiculous!

Ooh good find! I love finding stuff like that and seeing what I was into. I have a sketchbook full of clippings of graphic design I liked when I was in college. SO different from what I like now.
