Day 34 - Say Anything, Valentine.

Day 34 - Say Anything, Valentine.

Day 34 - Hey Cupids. Valentines Day is getting close. Is there a better way to show your Valentine your unbridled love than through music? Insert flirty wink here.

With music and Valentine's day on the brain, today's project is to create a super cool Valentine portable speaker from a few @Starbucks cups from your coffee run today. Remember the movie Say Anything (affiliate link) from 1989? If you haven't watched the movie, or it's been a decade, it's about dreamy teenage love at it's best. Oh, John Cusack. Sigh.

To get inspired on how romantic portable speakers can be, check out the sound on this video and watch Say Anything (affiliate link).

Sweet right?

Now let's get down to making today's project. If @Starbucks cups have been saved, then the hard part is done. Make note that any paper or plastic cup can be used. It doesn't need to be @Starbucks but the @Starbucks logo on the large plastic cups just happens to be the size of the paper towel roll which will be inserted into the cup. When you use the @Starbucks cups, cutting the correct size hole then becomes easier. Here are the other supplies needed for the speaker and the directions. Get ready to pump up the volume. Happy creating!
