The Art of the Mix CD

I really enjoy making mix-cds. They're a great gift, and are fun to put together. When I make one, I try to think about what music the person may know, and then combine that with things that I really like, and would like to share with them. Then play around with the 'flow' until I've got a winner.
Then comes the decorating, which I love. Lately, I've been using National Geographic magazines for the front and back covers. I also try and decorate the disc, either by drawing on it, or gluing a picture on top. To name it, I pick a lyric from one of the songs on the cd.
This is the last cd I made, for Ashleigh. I think it may be the best I've yet made.


  1. I'd love to make you a mix CD. I just need your address. You can email it to me if you'd like:

  2. Beautiful. I got the same type of gift for my birthday from a friend of mine. She used prints of pictures that she used in her music video. It had tigers and bunnies and foliage.
    I think those are the best kinds of gift, handmade from the heart.

  3. how'd you do the cool colours on the disc?

  4. Thanks guys! Anonymous - it's a plain white disc (which is good to draw on), and I put it in my discman, open the lid, and used felt tip pens
