Wedding Invitation Transforms Into Paper Record Player

Uniquely designed invite plays a tune written and performed by the future bride and groom.

Designer Kelli Anderson created a unique wedding invitation on behalf of her two friends. Open up the booklet and there are instructions on how to turn it into a working record player. Folding the piece of paper with a sewing needle inserted and then placing the needle so it is set in the grooves of the flexidisc record, you then spin the record at 45 RPM to play an original song written and performed by the future bride and groom.

Although the sound is rather tinny, the flexidisc also works on a conventional turntable, where it plays like any other record. The illustrations on the disc depict the couple “at their wedding”, “as they play music together”, “as they eat/drink/be merry” and “as they grow old together”.

This video shows the paper record player in action:
