This was one of my favorite project to work on recently. When we learned that Ming Yue was a fan of Nightwing, it kept us thinking what we could do to create something special for his 21st birthday gift. This was what we came up with: A custom Nightwing Shirt and a handmade book, a collection of wishes from his friends and family, near and far. We contacted as many of his friends overseas that we could and got them to send to us a short birthday video. They were then edited and we included the DVD along with the other written wishes in the book. This is Nightwing, the Robin we know from Batman who did not want to be Batman but became Nightwing instead ;) And this was the finished product! We created lil shirt tags to go along with the theme and included washing instructions. I did not take any pictures of the making of the shirt but I thought a recording would tell the process of it better. Do pardon the video quality :)

Once it was done, we bought some brown paper and wrapped it into a parcel

not forgetting his birthday and these logos The crossword puzzle as the book cover was one of my first choice when it came to making this. It was something that could be filled in/ left unwritten and still be something different. Attached was the DVD of video we were planning on surprising him with. The words were stamped in and the numbers were die cut. Flip the cd over to remove the DVD and still have a full view of the crossword puzzle ( if he chooses to use them)

Inside were about 20 pages of brown recycled paper, sewn across with a sewing machine using this method :)

And that marks the conclusion to this post! We were glad he loved it and we had fun making this! Till the next time :)
