It's a Small World! Themed Record Player

Just wanted to share my latest project with others who might appreciate it (other than the intended recipient )!

Backstory: The lead teacher/manager at the daycare/preschool my youngest two kids go to is a big Disney fan. She picked up a large collection of vintage Disney records (yes, the vinyl kind) at a garage sale and has been adding to it. She plays the records at preschool and all the kids LOVE them. My middle DD has a special spot for It's a Small World largely from hearing the song and dancing to it at school. The record player has had some hard times lately and I came across a good deal on some vintage looking portable record players recently so I picked one up for her/the school.

But I wanted to make it special for this teacher so I got the idea to decorate it in a Small World/Mary Blair style theme. So here it is! This was done with adhesive vinyl using a Cricut with the Make the Cut! program and the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I can hardly wait to give it to her tomorrow (the photo colors aren't great...the brownish-orange is actually metallic gold)!

You did an amazing job! The artwork on the top is outstanding and the children are very cute. Even the base color of the case is perfect. Brilliant work!

How beautiful and thoughtful. She will love it - it looks very authentic, like you found an actual old disney record player. That is a very special gift.

Thanks everyone. She wasn't in yet this morning so we left it on her desk with a note. She just texted me that she loves it and even teared up a bit over it.

That looks amazing! What a great idea and thoughtful gesture. As a teacher, I know that gifts and kind words are always appreciated, but this really shows how much you care. The children (and the teacher) will really enjoy using it!
